A lot of SEARS USA have closed down here, but it's nice to know Mikey boy hasn't stooped as low as fellow SNLers lie Victoria Jackson and Rob Schneider

Call me naive, but I really do believe Mike Myers didn't do this for a big paycheque but rather because his brother seriously did ask him to bring some star power to the advertising campaign of a struggling retailer.

I've already seen both Simpson's and Eaton's disappear from the Canadian retail landscape in my lifetime (and Simpson's went out of business around half a decade before Walmart even arrived in Canada); it would be a real shame if we lost another old school department store complete with elevators and escalators (what fascinated me the most about Eaton's and Simpson's when I was a little kid).

Out on the west coast, we lost Woodwards, Zellers, Consumer Distributing, and another one that I can't even remember the name of.

To be perfectly honest, although I kind of have a love of Sears' white trashy-collared shirts, if The Bay and Sears disappeared forever, I think I'd be pretty nonplussed.

We had Meyer and Frank and GI Joes (really) and they're replaced by H&M and Dicks (really)

I think Sears is just not willing to compete, and would rather cling to their aging/dying upper-middle-class target market with white knuckles instead of lowering their prices.

Just today I went to buy winter jackets for the kids. I first checked Old Navy and they were about with 30% off. Then checked Sears, they were 0 with 20% off. Fuck that.

Sears could pull that shit off back in the 80s/90s when they were the only store in the mall and they dominated the rural retail market with their catalog service, but not anymore.

5 sad stars for the Myers' (I went to Mike's high school)

The flagship Canadian Sears store shut down earlier this year. It kind of sucked to see the complete disarray the place was in during the clearance sale.

The Bay is nice and has classy stuff. Plus, it means I get to go shopping where they made Today's Special, and walk the same floors where Ben Schumin once visited.

My brother works at the Bay, which is a marginally nicer store. Take that Mr. Hollywood!

Long time employment with Sears Canada is guaranteed...even...the grave...doesn't end your employment...

So that's why the mannequins smell funny.

Myers, you have 0,000,000, what the fuck are you doing?

Not at Sears.

Good job, Sears. Nothing says "Hey, everyone, we're still relevant!" like an appearance by Mike Myers.

Myers is obviously doing this for fun and his brother.

Sears is dying because it's being run by a maniac Randroid named Eddie Lampert. It's lost half it's value since 2010 because he put all of Ayn Rand's philosophy into practice when he became CEO.
