It's funny, but growing up I always thought of Sears as the nicest store around. I remember learning that you could take your broken tools to Sears and they would replace them. But mostly because whenever I pass the Sears in my town, I always think of mi abuelo. Mi abuelo Thomas worked there for over 50 years. Sears was a big part of my moms childhood growing up and she always shares about her fond memories that my grandpa had of the company. Because of that personal relationship with Sears, I have always thought of it as a family oriented store. Just like my mom did growing up, we do a lot of our back to school and Christmas shopping there. I love that at Sears, you can always count on getting more – more value, more brands, more rewards and more ways to shop. To demonstrate all the ways Sears offers more to its members and customers, it has produced a video series called More To You featuring surprises with real people, based on real tweets from people who want to give more to the ones they love.
This video is a tear jerker for sure, so grab your tissues. It really is heartwarming to see how appreciative and grateful Jasmine is. When you are a kid, you don't realize all of the sacrifices that your parents make for your happiness. That all changes once you become a parent yourself. I never had any idea what sorts of sacrifices I would be making once I had kids.
Having my own kids has helped me to realize what my parents have sacrificed for me and my sister. I never had to want for much when I was growing up. But thinking back, my every day memories of my parents include my dad getting home late from work and my mom always running errands and cooking in the kitchen. We never did any vacations while I was growing up, because my dad was a self-employed business owner, he could never justify taking time off. Everything he did, the long hours he worked, his unavailability was all for our family. I see it so clearly now. I also recognize now how hard they are still working for our family. Life has never been easy for my parents, but as a kid, I didn't see it. I think I'm appreciative most for that, for the happy faces they always had for me and my sister.
So in this video, Sears visits Jasmine, a young woman who wanted to do something special for her hard working father and tweeted @Sears with #MasDeLoTuyo. Little did Jasmine know that he had a surprise for her as well.
Do you want Sears to give more to you like they did for Jasmine and her dad? Tweet @Sears with #MasDeLoTuyo and Sears just might give more to you too.
