To quote Dustin Hoffman from "Rain Man"

I saw they had the Presto Scandinavian coffee makers on sale for $20.00
- I guess the clearance from Sears didn't work and so they have found
their way to the next level....

And downtown Toronto @ their flagship store/headquarters, they have a
BIG brass plaque on the wall outside the door also. Like the statue of
Timothy Eaton, inside the flagship store too.

K-t - you live in a trailer

Sears - ditto, but it's a double-wide.

Actually, Sears is sort of an odd bird - a lot of upscale people shop in
them for major appliances, tools, etc. but they wouldn't be caught dead
wearing Sears clothes.

And Sears out of the catalog, and Hudson's Bay Company ran trading posts
where they exchanged pelts for blankets. The history is wonderfully
colorful. But the modern reality is that there is tremendous overlap in the
stuff that is sold - even though they all started from very different
places, there has been a lot of convergence in retailing between discounters
and catalog houses and full line dept. stores - you can buy a flat screen TV
at Wal-t, you can buy flashlight batteries and laundry soap at Sears,
everyone sells T-shirts and jeans, etc.

The Hudson's Bay Company (HBC; Compagnie de la Baie d'Hudson in French)
is the oldest commercial corporation in North America and is one of the
oldest in the world. It was at one time the largest land owner in the
world. From its longtime headquarters at York Factory on Hudson Bay, it
controlled the fur trade throughout much of British-controlled North
America for several centuries.

Founded in London, England May 2nd 1670.
