Sears, Roebuck and Co. has filled two top leadership positions in its hardlines business, which represents approximately 50 percent of the company's total domestic retail and related services business.

Sears has named former Kohl's senior executive, Beryl Buley to the post of senior vice president/general manager, home stores, replacing Dan Laughlin, who has been promoted to senior vice president/general merchandise manager of appliances and electronics, effective immediately. Both will report to Mark Cosby, executive vice president of Sears, Roebuck and Co. and president, full-line stores, said the company.

Mr. Buley was most recently executive vice president for stores at Kohl's. He will be responsible for approximately 1,300 off-mall stores, including dealer stores, Sears Hardware, Orchard Supply Hardware, Sears Outlet Stores, Sears Appliance and Hardware stores, builder distributors (McPhail's and Florida Builders), and National Tire and Battery (until closing of the sale to TBC Corporation), as well as licensed businesses and contract sales, according to the company. The off-mall stores represent an important distribution channel for Sears' appliances, automotive, electronics, and hardware products, the company said.

According to Sears, Mr. Laughlin will lead a multi-billion dollar revenue combination of home appliances, small home appliances, and consumer electronics. He joined Sears in 1972 and has served in a variety of field and headquarters assignments.

Earlier this month, Lyle Heidemann, executive vice president/general manager of Home and Off-Mall Stores for Sears, announced he would retire at the end of the year, concluding a 36-year career with Sears. Through year-end, Mr. Heidemann will continue to lead many of Sears' important hardlines businesses.
