Superman and Batman are still popular, […]

#TBT – ’80s Sears Commercials

Here is what our commercials were like in the 80’s when our tagline was “There’s more for your life at Sears!” Do you remember that? I certainly do. Check out some of the ones I found on YouTube. It’s incredible that people upload these still. It’s definitely a time stamp of what we all were […]

#TBT – ’80s Neon at Sears

Okay, please don’t act like you haven’t noticed this trend is back. I mean it’s impossible not to notice. Every other thing that was cool in the ’80s was even more rad or awesome because you could see it in the dark or a mile away. ’80s retro is back and still cool and this […]
