The Big Store Inside the Crisis and Revolution At Sears, Katz, Donald R.
2 Katz, Donald R. The Big Store Inside the Crisis and Revolution At Sears
0670805122 / 9780670805129; The binding corners have very light wear. The jacket is lightly bent in spots at the top with a few slight scratches on the back. ; The Big Store is that rarity, a nonfiction epic - the story of how Sears, Roebuck and Co. , or just Sears, to it's millions of customers, fought back from the brink of ruin and transformed itself into the corporation of the future. By 1972, Sears accounted for over 1% of the American gross national product. More than half the households in the country had a Sears credit card card and Sears was one of the seven or eight largest corporations in the world; it was determined by regular surveys that Sears was the most trusted economic institution in the country. Suddenly they were in the grip of a nightmare; corporate profits went into stagnation or decline, there was an internal civil war and Sears was subject to a spate of goverment and private lawsuits with numerous allegations. This is the crisis, and the revolution that followed, a story without precedence in the annals of business. The writer was set out to chronicle Sears' deterioration and was invited into the center of the corporation by the chairman, Edward Telling, and was allowed to document the company from the inside - no strings attached. This is an illuminating and revealing piece of writing by an award-winning business and political writer. ; Large 8vo 9" - 10" tall; 604 pages
