Sears expands its reach to major Intl markets thru ShopYourWay
For anyone looking to ship that perfect holiday gift to friends or family overseas, Sears now offers international shipping to 90 countries, providing yet another convenient option for customers to get everything they need this holiday, where and when they need it. Customers can choose from over 300,000 products in a variety of categories including tools, children's and infant clothing, shoes, jewelry, and home fashions, and can have it delivered to locations all around the globe as Sears.com expands its reach to major markets such as the UK, France, Germany, Spain, China, India, Japan, Argentina and Brazil.
"We are excited to offer this new international shipping option to our customers," said Imran Jooma, senior vice president for Online at Sears Holdings. "With our large product assortment and the capability to ship products internationally, we hope to make shopping easier and more convenient, both for customers in the U.S. with friends and family overseas, and for international customers who would like to purchase products from Sears."
The international shipping option provides customers a variety of tools to make shopping simple. Sears.com offers an international filter that allows customers to select only the items that are available for shipping to their selected destination. The eligible items for shipping are identified by the special globe icon located next to the products. And for Spanish speaking customers, Sears.com has an integrated Spanish language site to help make their online shopping easier.
Friends and family of military personnel who are abroad on active duty will be able to have gifts shipped to their stations. Sending gifts to loved ones through APO/FPO addresses can still be processed through the traditional Sears.com site and gifts can be delivered just in time for the upcoming holiday season by simply shopping as a U.S. customer and using U.S. currency.
In order to receive holiday purchases by December 25, 2009, orders must be placed by 11:59 p.m. CST on November 30, 2009.
"Sears is committed to making holiday shopping simple," added Jooma. "Our ShopYourWay campaign transforms the shopping experience and gives customers the flexibility to quite literally 'shop their way.' And now, we're extending that 'way' around the world."
