In a unique way to recognize the Memorial Day holiday this week, Sears created temporary, large-scale military-inspired works of art on the lawns of select VFWs across the country. It was an honor to work with these veterans and leave behind not only the natural work of art for their members to enjoy this weekend, but a new Craftsman riding mower for each post, courtesy of the Craftsman brand.
We also created one of these unique designs at our corporate headquarters in Hoffman Estates, to coincide with our annual Memorial Day wreath laying observance. In a ceremony organized by Sears Holdings’ Associate Military Support Network, we were honored to welcome two Chicago-area Gold Star families, members of Bartlett VFW Post #11018, and a Marine Corps color guard from Marine Wing Communications Squadron #48.
During the entire week of Memorial Day (5/26-6/3), Sears is also doubling its everyday military discount on select product categories – military and first responders can get 40% off regular price and 10% off sale price tools, work boots, watches, fine jewelry and sporting goods.*
Of course, Memorial Day weekend also means the unofficial start of summer and we welcome all members to their local store to save on everything they need to get their own lawn and backyard into shape to enjoy time outdoors with family and friends. At checkout, consider a donation to our annual Heroes at Home campaign with Rebuilding Together – currently raising funds and assisting military families in need by making critical repairs and modifications to their homes.
Thank you to all who have served our country and who continue to fight for our freedom.
