I used to shop at Sears in Canada when they existed (until 2018). Now for appliances I go to home depot, and for kitchen stuff I go to Canadian Tire. Sometimes I browse Amazon but it's so full of rubbish/fraud I just end up giving up. I have to admit I once tried shopping appliances at Sears, and the sales people were just hawkish and creepy, like car salesmen.
1. Hardware and home renovation stuff? Lowe's or Home Depot
2. Appliances? Best Buy
3. Auto? Honestly I think the auto category was the one that was "decent" the longest, but now I'd go anywhere else.
4. "Softer Side of Sears" stuff? Target
