Nice! I don't shop at these stores, but it's good to see.

Like the post above said, it took me about 6 calls and several callbacks to get to some VP of something... Anyway After I spoke with him, I was told "I assure you sir, I will get something from our legal department and have a case manager get back to you." soon after I got the email above!
So I am happy with the outcome, we can now reference this letter should any Sears stores decide to kick anyone else out... Just refer them to "Sears Senior Counsel" They also called me back to make sure I got the email!

Another WIN for the law abiding that I just felt it should be re-posted under an updated heading.Hello,
Its Emerald, your case manager, and this is the Sears cooperate policy regarding fire arms. Please call or email me to confirm you have gotten this information. Your case number is xxxxxxx.
Subject: RE: Request for fire arm/weapon policy
Here is the response from Sears Senior Counsel:
Our corporate policy regarding customers who openly carry firearms on our store premises is that as long as the law of the state in which our store is located legally permits the open carrying of firearms (i.e. carrying a firearm on one's person in plain sight), customers will be permitted to openly carry firearms within our stores.

Good to see, but after working at sears for a year, I'll never spend money or kmart.
