TRA­DI­TIONS RE­MEM­BERED

Reader's Digest (Canada) - - Contents -

Read­ing “Me, My Mom and Sears” (May 2018) brought back many mem­o­ries. I miss the Sears cat­a­logue even more than I miss the com­pany’s phys­i­cal stores. As a child grow­ing up in the 1960s, it was a big event when the an­nual cat­a­logue ar­rived at your house. Thick and filled with colour­ful pages, the books con­tained ev­ery­thing, even the kitchen sink. Chil­dren would pick out what they wanted from Santa that year, and par­ents would call in their or­ders on a ro­tary phone. They’d get to speak di­rectly with a sales­per­son be­fore hav­ing a pack­age de­liv­ered right to their door. Those were the days!
