ugh, thanks for the heads-up.  FH is all about registering at Sears, which I don’t mind, but I’m a bit nervous because they don’t strike me as a place that has a lot of registry experience.  I think we’re only planning to register for a handful of items, and FH is definitely a researcher, so hopefully it won’t be too difficult.  Hope your other registries are more couple-friendly!

I had a wonderful registry experience at Sears and chose my registry to be there because any couples I have shopped for through registries Sears staff have been unreal helpful and knowledgeable of the store and getting me what I want and getting me in/out the store asap!

We have man stuff, home stuff, Sears furniture, three Sears stores worth of registry items and all positive experiences.

Not to downplay how you were treated, but hopefully your problem is isolated to your location(s) and I think good and bad can happen at all places!!!

My fiance actually works at SEARS as well as a full time student and we had an great time!!! we went to the huge SEARS in el paso tx and it took awhile to set up then we got the scanner and he had a blast!!! they printed everything out for us so perhaps its just your store which i would recommend calling and speaking to the store manager

I figured Sears would have a great registry. And not just for men… but for brides too. They have all kinds of stuff! Maybe you went to a specific type of Sears, like Sears tools or something? Some Sears have separate applicances and clothing, etc stores. My fiance and I plan on going to Sears so he can get his man stuff 🙂 I’ll call them ahead of time to make sure we have a good experience though. Thanks for the heads up!

It might depend on the sears you go to.  I know where I am from they just have sears home stores, but where my FH is from they have a huge sears department store.  I know at the department store they have registries like every other place, guns and everything.  It sucks you had a bad experience, hopefully you get to register other places that are better experiences.

We registered at Sears and had a little bit of a hard time at first…the employees weren’t very knowledgable but once we got one that knew what they were doing it was cake! Depending on the store…they have a great amount of stuff! You are also able to go online and add things if they don’t have it in the store you register at. My FH wanted to register there due to the tools as well and I found a lot of kitchen, bed and bath stuff I liked as well.

You don’t even need to go to the store to set up a Sears registry, you can just do it from your home computer and browse their online site & add items that way. Yes their online ‘catalog’ is limited more than what there would be in the store, but you can also add the serial numbers from any of their current paper catalogues too.

Just sayin’.

We went to Sears as well, and while I’m sorry about your bad experience, I think it was the specific store you went to, not Sears in general.  It took maybe 10-15 minutes for the regular sales clerk to track down the registry lady, but then we were taken over to the computer where she completed the computer forms then gave us the gun to go around and scan stuff.  I finished it off online (which was set up really well).

You should just make a MyRegistry.com account and add items online. It’ll be a lot easier – and that way the “manregistry” will be listed with everything else. You don’t want your guests to be confused on whether thats a registry, or just his wish list lol.
