Exciting new launch of MySears!




Hi Everyone!


We have some exciting news to share! Like always, we are working hard to make your experience in the community better and more enjoyable. Based on the communities input, we are launching a series of site changes over the coming month!


Here’s a highlight of what’s changing—just wanted to give you a sneak peek:

                • Our name! After much debate, and input from our discussion boards, we are changing our name to MySears!  In the next few weeks, you will see that name being used all throughout the site.  As part of this change, we will be retiring the sk-YOU site and launching a new site called (don’t worry, we will automatically redirect you there if you forget!) We are also working on a site dedicated to Kmart shoppers.

                • We have integrated the community more closely with That means, on MySears you will see a lot MORE of “Sears” throughout the site. You will be able to see all of the Sears products, browse the site by Sears categories, read the Sears product reviews and ultimately buy Sears products.  Likewise, we will be displaying YOUR reviews on By the way, if you see a reviewer with a “Sears shopper” t’shirt, it means the review was written by someone on and they haven’t joined the community yet.  

                 We will STOP syndicating content from partner sites. Everything on the site will be written and contributed by Sears customers. As part of this change, you may notice that some of your former friends are no longer active on the site. That is because they were visiting from a partner site. You can still connect with them! You will see their profile and be able to find them on the partner site that referred them.

But, that’s not all that’s in the works! In the months to follow, we are also planning to launch a new feature called, “Ideas!” We have been listening to you and want to listen more! You will now have a place to formally submit your ideas for change and watch them be put into action! We will also be launching Management Blogs. Over the coming months, management will be blogging to better engage in a dialog with you—our customers. We look forward to talking with you and getting to know you even better. Last but not least, we will be expanding our “Simple Thanks” program so that there will be more opportunities to participate in sweeps, and earn recognition for your contributions to the dialog.


There are a lot of changes in store at sk-YOU over the coming weeks and months. Be on the lookout for these changes.  The first of them will be happening this SATURDAY, March 28th (and the site will be down for a little while—so please bear with us!).


Be certain to check back and check out the new upgrades, ask us any questions… and let us know what you think!
