In Hawaii Sears they have a Koa Kalane Ukulele for $139.99
and they have the old style Hilo chipboard cases now on sale for 35.99

Aloha bruddah Stan! That's so cool! Too bad the case is not available to ship to Canada. Then again, shipping would double the cost of the case to get delivered to my igloo. lol

Found this Badaax solid Koa soprano under the Honolulu Sears location:

Who woulda thunk it. Lanakais next to the Kenmore washers and Craftsman socket sets.

What's next for Sears...vinyl siding and garage doors. Sheesh.

Yea I was surprised too!! I went to the Sears in Winward Mall, and saw the ukes in the display case :) However, I like the ukes at the Navy Exchange by the airport. They have tons of K brand ukes.

Go check 'em out, their stock changes. Located on da 2nd floor by da "Hawaiiana" section. Dey keep em' in one glass case and you gotta ask one of the clerks to open 'em. Wen we went last year, they had Kamaka, Kanile'a and KoAloha.

The NEX inventory is unique to their locale.

Sears Still carries Ukuleles

I didn't know Kenmore made ukuleles! I guess we should add Kenmore to the list of "K brand" ukes.

My very first ukulele was a Silvertone. I believe these were made by Sears. It was actually a nice ukulele. But I traded up for a Martin and never looked back.

Sears was the first national retailer to carry ukuleles -- they were listed in the 1914 catalog, and each year thereafter.

They already have vinyl siding and have for years.
