    NEW YORK (CNN/Money) - Kmart is buying Sears, Roebuck & Co. for $11 billion in a deal that will marry two of the nation's oldest retailers that had trouble keeping up with the changes in American culture around them.

    The deal, announced Wednesday morning, will create the third-largest retailer in the country. The new company, known as Sears Holdings, will be based at Sears headquarters outside Chicago.

    While the new company will operate both Sears and Kmart stores, "several hundred" Kmarts will be converted to Sears, Sears Chairman Alan Lacy said at a news conference. The companies currently operate about 3,500 stores combined.

    Word...the problem here is that the weekenders will do it for $20, do a slipshod job and customer opinion will be that $100 professional level work is a rip-off especially if the quality is as bad as what the weekender did...Modern moronic perception being what it is today.

    Stick to b2b as much as you can...it's no different than the CNC router crowd. Nobody is allowed to tell the garage bands their stuff isn't up to par or that you'd be embarrassed to show that because that might hurt their tender feelings...so all you can do is sit back and cringe. You are not alone.

    --"weekenders", and many a so-called 'professional' are responsible for a good portion of my customer base
