Stephen Fortier sent a message to Edward Lampert Chairman and CEO of Sears Holdings Email Address that said:

Eddie, I am a fellow Yalie, Class of 1972, Berkeley. I fortunate to have been able play football with Calvin Hill and Brian Dowling and I was part of the 1968 Yale vs. Harvard 29-29 tie! Im sorry to bother you with such a small matter, but I am in need of your help. I hate to see Sears products go down so in quality. I bought a Craftsman trimmer from your company, back in September of this year, expecting it to be as good as the one I bought over 10-15 years ago. Unfortunately, it was not. Comparatively, the newer model (although it is 32 CCs compared to the old model being 29 CCs) was a piece of junk, and now Sears will not allow me to return it, despite the fact I have been a long-time, loyal customer for over 30+ years. Can you help out a fellow Bulldog? Speaking of Bulldogs, what a Great season for Yale football!! I was happy to see such success after so many years of challenges!! Thanks and take care. Stephen D. Fortier (912) 674-4101 sdfort@tds.net
