Hint: Buy Online, Pick Up In-Store was the Most Popular Option for Mobile Shoppers

HOFFMAN ESTATES, Ill., Dec. 27, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Sears Holdings announced today that millions of customers took advantage of the convenience, ease and affordability of shopping online at Sears.com and Kmart.com to get and give holiday gifts this season. More than 50 million items were available in the endless aisles of online merchandise for gift buyers to find the perfect present, and Sears and Kmart provided a variety of simple and quick ways for customers to get their purchases.

"We are grateful to our Members and customers who chose to shop at Sears.com and Kmart.com this season. We are dedicated to giving them the value and convenience they want through a variety of integrated retail options in-store, online and via mobile device," said Imran Jooma, executive vice president and president of Marketing & Online, Sears Holdings. "Convenience and speed through mobile shopping was more popular than ever among Sears and Kmart customers, with more than half of all mobile orders bought online, then picked up in store. Members also took advantage of SHOP YOUR WAY Rewards that provided extra perks and privileges this season at Sears and Kmart. In fact, more than half of Kmart and Sears business comes from SHOP YOUR WAY Rewards Members."

In addition to broader business trends, the retailer also shared fun and relevant holiday shopping facts, coming out of the busiest shopping season.
