Sears, Roebuck and Co. said today that 14 of its stores in North Carolina, closed yesterday because of Hurricane Isabel, have re-opened.
Although some parts of Durham are without power, Sears stores are open and are currently operating on generator-power. Sears has worked with its vendors to ensure the company's stores on the East Coast were stocked with many storm- related essentials and clean up items including:
-- Wet/Dry vacuums -- Dehumidifiers -- Sump pumps -- Chainsaws, hand-tools and cordless powertools -- Gas Cans -- Blowers -- Chipper Shredders -- Workboots and gloves -- Batteries and battery-operated radios and flashlights
To help its customers in areas impacted by Hurricane Isabel, Sears Auto Centers and National Tire & Battery stores will offer free flat repair throughout the duration of the cleanup.
"With large amounts of debris on the roads, flat tires will be yet another problem many people will be dealing with," said Ted Wells, Sears Raleigh district manager. "To get our customers back on their way with as little inconvenience as possible, Sears and NTB will fix their flats at no charge, while also providing our customary fast, friendly and expert service."
