Sears Extends Store Hours to Help Customers Make Up for Shortened Weekend due 
to Weather 
Most stores across Canada Open until Midnight Monday and Open Early Tuesday 
TORONTO, Dec. 23, 2013 /CNW/ - Sears Canada Inc. (TSX: SCC) announced today 
that it will extend store hours over the next two days to help customers make 
up for the shortened hours that occurred in some malls over the weekend due to 
weather, and to provide an opportunity for customers to do their shopping in 
more reasonable weather. Rather than single out certain locations, Sears 
will extend its hours at all its full-line department stores across Canada, 
where it is permitted to do so, to midnight on Monday night, December 23 and 
open its doors at 6:00 a.m. on Tuesday, December 24. 
"Customers were counting on being able to shop extensively for Christmas over 
the last two days, and weather forced several malls in which we are located to 
close and others to operate with limited capacity," explained Doug Campbell, 
President and Chief Executive Officer, Sears Canada. "Staying open until 
midnight tonight and opening early on Christmas Eve will help make up for some 
of that during this very busy period. We are thankful to the sales 
associates who elected to work the extended shifts and allow their colleagues 
to carry on with their plans." 
All Sears full-line department stores in Canada will participate in the 
extended hours except Lloydminster, Prince Albert, Moose Jaw, Sault Ste. 
Marie, Sudbury, Cobourg, Bathurst, Truro, New Glasgow, New Minas, Corner Brook 
and those located in the province of Quebec.
