With new features, new technology and new brands, you may feel overwhelmed as you begin your search for the perfect appliances. As the number one appliance retailer, Sears carries the top 10 brands and, as the home of Kenmore for over 100 years, we understand how our members shop for appliances better than any other retailer. Sears has made it even easier to research and buy an appliance by putting help literally at your fingertips. Meet with an Expert lets you schedule a visit with a knowledgeable associate in your local Sears store directly from sears.com as you’re researching online. When you show up for your scheduled visit, they will already know what you’re interested in and can help you narrow your selection and find the right product to fit your needs. Here’s how Meet with an Expert works:
