HOFFMAN ESTATES, Ill., Oct. 26, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Today Sears Holdings announces that it is providing customers with real deals near them in real time, by way of new digital local ads available on searslocalad.com and kmartlocalad.com. Continuing Sears' role in enhancing the online shopping experience with innovative technology and tools to help customers better manage their lives and budgets, the new digital local ads provide customers with prices and offers from their very own local Sears or Kmart stores, real-time stock checks and access to ads 24 hours a day.
