Fabulous Job!

Dear Sears Home Services,
I would like to thank the gentleman who remodeled kitchen. The countertop came in about 1 in. deeper on the corner. Instead of having to wait for the counter to be re-ordered, our installer was able to fix the problem. He saved us the inconvenience of having the kitchen torn up for another three weeks. He did a fabulous job with the installation. I am a very hard-to-please consumer. I check every detail closely, and I didn’t find any problems. Once again, thank you for the fantastic job you did so quickly.
Sincerely,

Satisfied Sears customer | Folsom, CA
Truly Outstanding

Dear Sears Home Services, All of you were wonderful. Sears should be very proud and is lucky to have such good quality people representing them. The degree of professionalism displayed and the quality of work was truly outstanding. (PARA) Thanks for exceeding our expectations with this project. We will never go to anyone else for any future purchases or home improvements. Your best advertising is a very satisfied customer and we have become that customer for Sears.
Sincerely,

Satisfied Sears customer | Hartford, CT
