TORONTO, Dec. 23 /CNW/ - After five weeks of Boxing Day prices featuring unprecedented price reductions taken before Christmas, Sears Canada Inc. (TSX: SCC), considered Canada's only true national retailer, announced today its Boxing Day sale by distributing its full-size 24-page flyer in mailboxes and community newspapers across Canada.

"Canadians wait for Boxing Day with perhaps more anticipation than any other shopping day of the year," said Dene Rogers, President and CEO, Sears Canada Inc. "This year, Sears has the deals Canadians are seeking, including two full pages of televisions and home theatre equipment, seven pages of fashion for the entire family, nine pages of home furnishings and appliances, and many 'door crasher' specials available in limited quantities. Sears definitely has a wider selection of merchandise advertised in its Boxing Week flyer than any other retailer in Canada. Plus, except for a few locations, Sears will open its doors at 6:00 a.m. in order to give its customers ample time to stock up at these outstanding prices."

"Televisions and other home electronics are one of the most popular Boxing Day items," continued Mr. Rogers. "In fact, this year, prices are reducing with such frequency that we suggest our customers visit our website at www.sears.ca for the latest prices because, in some cases, the price in-store may be even lower than what was advertised in our flyer, which was printed just a couple of weeks ago. That's how close Sears is staying on top of its competitors to ensure we are offering the lowest possible price."
