Sears celebrates the holiday season with a decor sweepstakes and LED trade-in
HOFFMAN ESTATES, Ill. (Profitable.com) Sears is your holiday decorating headquarters this Christmas, with a broad range of indoor and outdoor Christmas trimmings. As a one-stop shop for all holiday decor needs, Sears is proud to carry exclusive trimming collections from Ty Pennington Style and Country Living as part of their indoor selection. Both collections include ribbons, garlands, tree skirts and beautiful ornaments to create an exquisite Christmas tree.
“Whether it is twinkling lights, a fabulous tree, or all the festive trimming, Sears has everything our customers need to decorate their homes inside and out for the holidays,” said Dev Mukherjee, president, Seasonal & Toys, Sears Holdings. “We have also created an incredible online experience at Sears.com/holidayshop that will help our customers find the perfect trees and lights to celebrate the holiday.”
Seeking out perfect decorations that are ‘greener’ does not mean customers must sacrifice holiday sparkle, because now Sears is helping customers recycle their old, used or broken holiday lights for new LED strands by offering a $4 coupon for every set brought in to Sears. Customers will also be making a difference in energy and environmental savings, as a strand of ENERGY STAR-qualified LED lights uses 70 percent less energy than an incandescent light string. Moreover, if every decorative light string purchased in the U.S. this year were ENERGY STAR-qualified, we would collectively save $80 million on annual energy costs, while preventing 1 billion pounds of greenhouse gas emissions – equivalent to 100,000 cars. How’s that for brightening up the planet! Customers can upgrade their lights by visiting their local Sears from Nov. 11 through Nov. 20 and participating in our “Trade in and Trade up to ENERGY STAR event.”
For more incentive to start decorating early, between now and Nov. 22, customers are encouraged to visit www.sears.com/deckyourhalls and vote for their favorite holiday theme for a chance to win one of four Holiday Home Decorating Kits valued at $2,000 each! Sears, along with its Holiday trim shop merchants, will donate $1 to the Heroes at Home Wish Registry for every vote received during the Deck Your Halls sweepstakes.*
Sears is making decorating the home even easier and more affordable this holiday season. For more information on the Christmas light trade-in and to shop Sears’ line of Holiday items online, please visit Sears.com/HolidayShop.
* Donation will not exceed $10,000
