Sears launches ‘ReImagine You’ campaign

Hoffman Estates, Ill.-based Sears has launched a new marketing campaign in an effort to boost excitement about the brand in the wake of the company’s less-than-optimistic year-end financial results.

The campaign, called “ReImagine You,” launched March 1 and will run to the end of May. The push is aimed toward helping consumers find interesting and economical ways to improve their homes.

“ ‘ReImagine You’ aims to inspire imaginations and provide the tools and advice to make practical dreams a reality,” the company said in a release. Specifically, the company plans to use spokespeople including Eric Stromer, host of HGTV’s “Over Your Head,” and Ty Pennington, handyman for ABC’s “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition.”

Sears has launched a Web site,, featuring tips from Stromer, Pennington, NYC interior designer Eric Cohler and an expert on “green” home improvements, Deborah Barrow.

The company also plans to renovate the homes of 70 veterans of the armed forces on April 26 as part of National Rebuilding Day.
