For added convenience and to save time during the busy holiday shopping season, Sears and Kmart have been investing in integrated shopping options for on-the-go customers to seamlessly bring the in-store, online and mobile experiences together. Today, about half of the online business at Sears and Kmart now includes interactions with another channel, such as the popular buy online, pickup in store feature that guarantees select items purchased online will be ready in 5 minutes or less at all Sears locations. Sears also offers a Curb Side Pickup option in approximately 700 locations. Other integrated retail options include the new Sears and Kmart mobile apps, which allow shoppers to check if an item they want is in stock at local stores for same day pickup, and layaway where customers can put items on layaway in the store and pay off their layaway contract via their mobile device.

SHOP YOUR WAY Members have access to even greater deals and discounts, not only through all of Sears and Kmart online and mobile shopping channels, but also through the social shopping experience of ShopYourWay.com and the SHOP YOUR WAY mobile app. The free program offers rewards, daily sweepstakes and personalized deals that create an overall customized experience, which is now responsible for driving more than half of Sears' and Kmart's business. Through the SHOP YOUR WAY mobile app, Members will be notified of exclusive holiday savings, including Cyber Monday deals, and receive coupons that they can access and bring to the store via their mobile devices.  And new this holiday season, SHOP YOUR WAY Members can return or exchange an item without a receipt.
