Sears distributors provide a wide range of tools for customers to choose from including general hand tools, power tools, auto and mechanics tools, electrician and plumbing tools, welding equipment and woodworking tools.
Sears has approximately 2, 300 distributors in the United States and Canada. The official distributors of Sears products can be found in local Sears stores in both territories and they all carry the similar lines of tools supplies, products and brands. If a product is not available at a distributor in a particular location it can be requested and shipped directly to the customer or the customer can pick it up at the store.
