Sears is the ultimate middle man: makes nothing, sell a ton of different items fro clothes to tires and tools.

It's going bankrupt. I guess those unfettered profits were more fettered than we thought.

Retail is a very tough business. Margins are very very thin.

People aren't generally stupid, tho I must wonder sometimes.

Online shopping that cuts out the mid-man profit saves the purchaser heaps. It even saves 10 % GST here in Australia, because the gov couldn't be arsed monitoring and charging the GST for online purchases. Say goodbye to Kmart peoples.
