"The Brick--the chain is offering a $100 gift card to Sears Canada extended warranty holders to offset the cost of repairs.

The Brick also wants "to employ staff who will be displaced by the Sears closure." It is launching hiring fairs in markets where Sears stores have shut down, to fill 300 open positions at its stores.

That's a drop in the bucket when considering that 12,000 people stand to lose their jobs as Sears shuts down its 130 remaining stores across Canada."

This is nice to see a big chain store is trying to help and ease the situation many folks are in. At least, the Brick is trying. :130:

Why would Leon's open a store in Kelowna with it's subsidiary The Brick already here.
