For my family, Christmas is a family affair so I brought the whole caravan along to help me choose.
First of all, I was surprised with the size of the holiday department at Sears. I expected it to be MUCH bigger than it was. Sadly, it was only 2.5 very short aisles wide, and some of the aisles were not totally filled, especially in the licensed section. I'm sure they just needed to do some restocking of items. I did have a very nice gentleman ask me if I needed any assistance almost immediately. That gave me to opportunity to find out if this was the as big as the holiday section was going to get. Unfortunately that's all folks, bummer. I almost wished my gift card was for Kmart (owned by Sears) at that point, I know their holiday section is a little bigger. The Ty Pennington section did not stand out to me at all, in fact I don't even recall seeing any Ty Pennington Items.
OK enough with the bummers....now to what ROCKED MY SOCKS. The tree selection was AWESOME. There were tree of all sizes and colors. What really did it for me was the pre-lit tree selection. I have been searching for a nice pre-lit tree that had BOTH white and colored lights for a long time and nothing did it for me...until I got to Sears :)
That's basically where the family came in for me. Once I was done touching all the pretties and oohing over the pre-lit tree of my dreams, I let the littles pick out whatever they wanted. We talked about starting a tradition right then and there and they chose to each get a licensed Disney ornament.
Once turkey day has come and gone....we will be back at Sears to get that FABULOUS, dreamy, pre-lit tree I've been wanting for....forever.
That's right, one of my lucky readers will get their VERY OWN $15 gift card compliments of Sears and the Smilely360 program!!!!
