I had a job at Sears.  Part-time.  Summer of ’89.

He then took a job at Sears but always regretted not giving radio a little more time.

I had been offered a job at one of the best radio stations in the country but in the beginning it was only part-time.  A friend managed a Sears store and hired me and allowed me to work around the other schedule.  He even offered me work selling appliances and with commission I could’ve done very well.

One afternoon we went to lunch and he explained he had worked a few hours a week at a radio station during the mid-50s.  He then took a job at Sears but always regretted not giving radio a little more time.  He said there was nothing wrong about chasing dreams.

I left Sears when the radio gig went full time, although.  For decades I shopped at Sears out of loyalty.

All things must pass and Sears is slowly ratcheting down business.  The Twin Falls store closed and now Idaho Falls is losing Sears.

I hear footsteps.  Most of the iconic retailers of my youth are gone.
