One thought on “Prodigy And Sears’ Ironic Bankruptcy”

  1. This is not surprising considering the Sears @ Granite Run usually only has 2 cashiers per floor and they are on the floor merchandising stock. You have to activly search them out in order to pay for your item. Sears used to be the king of mail order and we always looked forward to the new catalog. It is a shame they had it all and could not figure it out in the modern world.
