Sears Outlet Store

also known as the "Junk Shop"

Selling Everything and Repairing Shit

Stuff people returned because the appliance doesn't work right

Some stuff returned because it was scratched and dented.

Some stuff won't fit in the customers house.

Some stuff sat on the sales floor too long.

Some stuff sat in the warehouse too long.
