Interesting signs (of the apocalypse?) at Sears

Posted on March 31, 2014

Sears Automotive, part of Sears Holdings Corp. has been going through a lot of changes of late. Are any of them red flags of things to come?

Maybe. The company already has indicated it may spin-off its auto centers. And earlier this year, it tabbed a financial guy to run its automotive business. The previous head of automotive at Sears? Joe Finney, a tire guy.

But perhaps a recent Sears advertisement tells the whole story. Modern Tire Dealer Editor Bob Ulrich talks about the ad in his latest blog, "What is going on at Sears? The noise is deafening."

What, indeed, is going on at Sears? What do you make of its latest ad? Read the blog, then let us know what you think by leaving a comment!
