Title: Sears to sell Kenmore brand on Amazon
Post by: Southern Jewel's Fab Finds on July 21, 2017, 10:32:04 AM
From the article: Sears to sell Kenmore brand on Amazon (http://www.marketwatch.com/story/sears-to-sell-kenmore-brand-on-amazon-2017-07-20-12485539)

If you can't beat them, join them.

Sears Holdings Corp. will start selling its Kenmore line of refrigerators and stoves on Amazon.com Inc.'s website, marking the first distribution of its kitchen appliances outside of its own stores.

Sears's shares jumped 12% to $9.75 premarket, offsetting a 6.6% slump so far this year.

The move could be a boon to sales as dwindling foot traffic in stores has led to years of sales declines. Sears has been facing increased competition in white goods to Best Buy, Home Depot and other retail chains.

The company also said the partnership will benefit its Sears Home Services as it will provide delivery, installation and extended product protection for all Kenmore goods sold through Amazon.



My note: The appliances will have Alexa installed. Thus broadening the base of Amazon.
Me = Looking in pantry. Darn, I'm out of <insert name>
Looks over shoulder to Kenmore appliance and says: Alexa, Order <insert name>
Me thinking = Geeez, this is alot like Skynet
