I just recieved my Sears 2010 spring and summer tool book catalog.This used to be some excitement one time as there was always lots of Craftsman mechanics hand tools to view.When I opened it up and read it(probally in the bathroom)what a shock,only four pages of hand tools!I just got back from a visit to our retail Sears store and another shock,what was once a large department for tools is now reduced to what you could store in a closet.Does it seem to anyone else that Craftsman tools are dying a slow death in Canada,or is it just here on the east coast?I have Craftsman tools that I have had for twenty-five years or more,I hope to be able to buy new in the future if they are still able to be got.What are you views on this in other parts of Canada?

yah totally. i went online and saw all these tools but when i went to the store they don't stock anything anymore. just some of the common type tools and whatnot.... gone are the days of sears stocking tools. looks like canadian tire won the battle cause they still stock a fair amount. but for actual shop tools for work im finding myself going to the tool trucks more and more because of convenience. ive taken many trips to canadian tire and sears only to find that ill have to order what i want......instead i just talk to the tool guy when he comes around. :(

Yes I found the same in Ontario. Its rather unfortunate.

Sears only seems to have chrome sockets, wrenches, screwdrivers and gearwrench sets and open stock in the store.
