It’s no secret the fiasco that ensued yesterday with the opening of the Sears Heroes Wish Registry . If you want to know what happened click here.
In light of that I just received the following email from a Sears spokesperson and it looks like all those applications from yesterday are being discarded to give everyone a fair chance to apply again.
Here is the official email I received just a few minutes ago:
Thank you for your continued support of the Sears Heroes at Home Wish Registry.
As you may know, we encountered a few issues with the registration process on Aug. 31, which impacted some people’s ability to register.
Given the sacrifices that our military heroes and their families make, we believe it’s particularly important that everyone have an equal opportunity to register. Accordingly, a new registration process will be conducted on Saturday, September 3, 2011 at 1pm CST.
PLEASE NOTE: All prior applications will be discarded. If your readers were able to submit a registry application yesterday, they must re-apply during the new registration time period in ordered to be considered for the registry.
At the dedicated time, Sears will post a REGISTRATION link on the Sears Heroes at Home website, www.sears.com/heroesathome, where active military members, Guard and Reservists and their families who comply with program guidelines can sign up for the program. Registration will again be on a first-come, first-serve basis and will close once the maximum number of 20,000 applicants is reached.
We apologize for any inconvenience this has caused but want things to be fair for all families. Sears appreciates all the sacrifices that our military members and their families make for our country and we wish them all a wonderful holiday season.
Many thanks again,
Division Vice President, Sears
