went by the sears outlet
« on: February 07, 2019, 08:12:53 PM »
The place had several tables out with 50% off stuff. I took the opportunity to pick up some made in usa pieces. Most notably two 14mm deep 3/8 drive six point sockets to replace one I lost. Apparently, according to the associate, they closed a Sears at the mall a couple towns over and this was there inventory.


There was a post about bottle openers and I scored this one. I will have to post the pix of the kobalt ones I have again.


Averaged about $4.25 per piece.


Might have over paid for the sockets but didn't know if the opportunity would present itself again so I bought em.


1/2', 13mm and 15mm  Ill probably give em to my son and son in law for Christmas. They were 50% off the marked price.


Couldn't pass up these pliers. $8.75 ea and made in usa. I like these because there isn't a nut to loosen. Also two will go as gifts.

They have some of those pliers at the local hardware and they look like an excellent tool, I may have to pick up a pair of the linesmans.

I'm assuming the Sears outlets are going out just like the regular store?

I didn't know there were any Sears Outlet stores left anymore.

That is funny yours is in the old Kmart as ours is too, along with a church on one side and an office depot on the other in the old Kmart space.

According to the associate I talked to, this outlet is a privately owned franchise. He commented that the Sears in the mall closest to my home wont be closing from what he knew.

I am glad as that is where I buy new tires. I know the mgr and shop guy and make sure to get the shop guy "taken care of" with some "lunch money" and he always gets right on my loose wheels when I come in. I don't let anyone take wheels on and off the vehicles any more. I got tired of replacing studs that were cross threaded. I have an extra pair of wheels for most of my vehicles so I have some back ups if something goes wrong. No wonder I don't have any room in my garage.

I was told by a Sears outlet employee that the Sears you see in a mall and Sears outlet are two totally different companies. He said that Sears outlet has to buy their appliances and other liquidation pieces from Sears along with Lowes, JCP, and others.

Picked up some of the 8" slipjoints at the hardware today, and the fit and finish is amazing.
