Before the Free Palestine Shirt, Sears Sold Swastikas


Sears has a serious quality control problem. Online behemoths like Amazon move massive quantities of merchandise by allowing third party sellers to sell nearly everything through it, including counterfeit clothing, with very little quality control. Major big box retailers like Walmart and Sears have tried to compete by doing the same thing. 

The trouble with opening the doors to third party sellers is that they decide to list things like swastika jewelry or a Free Palestine shirt.

The message of the swastika and free Palestine is the same. Jewish genocide. Both have symbols of nationalistic anti-Semitism. The latter is linked to Islamic terrorism as well.Last time Sears issued an extensive apology and promised better quality control.
When we became aware of the existence of these offensive items, we immediately prevented the items from being purchased on the site and then proceeded to remove them from the site yesterday (October 13, 2014). We are also in the process of removing related, offensive items from our site.

All Marketplace Sellers must accept our seller agreement terms in order to sell their items on sears.com, that allow us to remove anything offensive. We promptly contacted the Sellers to strongly voice our concern over their incredible lack of judgment.

The "Free Palestine" shirt is listed as coming from Spreadshirt. It seems as if Sears needs to have a talk with Spreadshirt.
