    Default 70% off Lands End inside Sears

    Lands End and Sears are breaking up. I drove out to one yesterday (the nearby ones are now closed). I had no idea it was closing. I ended up buying several pairs of jeans, iron knee leggings, and a few tees for the girls, and two pairs of pants for me. All for about $90. YMMV. My store wasn't completely picked over. They had lots of skorts and dresses too, but my DDs arenít as into those anymore. Lots of womenís and menís too, the boysí section seemed the most picked over.

    Later, I googled. It seems LE is opening retail stores and also starting to sell through Amazon. So they are not going out of business. Iím glad because I think theyíre a great company and was sad they were entangled in all the Sears mess

    We have a new free standing Lands End near us. Interestingly, in the same mall but smaller building that Sears was in before it closed last year.

    Interesting. The Land's End in our Sears has never had much for boys. The girls section is at least twice the size. And I'm in plus sizes, so I've never had any luck. I might stop in tomorrow just to see what's left.

    Interestingóeven though Iím a big LE shopper, I wasnít aware of either the new LE retail stores or Amazon sales. If Iím reading the store locator on the LE website correctly, neither my NE family nor I am anywhere near a retail store. No big impact ó even when the Sears LE departments were thriving here, they never had much in plus sizes.

    Any thoughts about buying online directly from LE vs from Amazon? Like many of us, Iíve managed to get some great LE deals using their frequent sales/codes, plus ebates. Not sure it will be as easy to game the system if I order LE from Amazon. However, it looks like LE has recently raised its free shipping threshold from $50 to $75 (which I got caught by the other day when I wasnít paying attention!).

    I wasn't aware of it either. Apparently more stores are opening this year, so one my open near you (or me!) One benefit I can see, other than potential Prime shipping would be returning items for free. Now that the Sears stores are closed you'd have to mail them back (they don't have free returns AFAIK.)

    The big, nice Sears near me that closed last year had a huge LE section including a separate Plus, Mens and Boys section. They even had shoes for the whole family.
