I try to avoid Sears whenever I can. It seems each time I walk into that store, I'm attacked by sales people wanting to know if they 'can help'. I find myself repeatedly saying 'no thanks, i'm just looking' which gets old real fast. I find its really in the home appliance/tools section where this hounding occurs. Commision perhaps? One 'sales' person, to whom I already said 'no thanks', actually followed us around and jumped right ino a discussion we were having regarding different bbq grill options! When Im ready to buy something or if i have questions, I'll let you know. Until then, leave me in peace!
