With the biggest football weekend of the year quickly approaching, sports fans are rushing to put the finishing touches on their party plans. While the food and fanfare are key components of any big football gathering, the Sears Blue Electronics Crew knows that it is the TV that makes the party. To ensure that football fans catch every play of the game, along with all the great commercials, Sears is offering big discounts on some of its hottest TVs. Sears also makes the buying process easy with its buy online, pick up in-store and "Ready in Five" guarantee. Now, shoppers can have their new TVs and other home electronics picked up before the big kickoff.
"A TV or other large ticket items can take up to seven months for the average shopper to make a purchase decision, but with so little time before the game, we wanted to simplify the purchase process by offering everything from our real-time price checks to the Ready in Five guarantee," said Karen Austin, senior vice president and president, Home Electronics, Sears Holdings. "Now, Sears shoppers can select a TV or other electronics from our wide assortment, including the top name brands and latest technologies, in time to have everything ready by kickoff."
