In an effort to get back into the home improvement market, Sears announced on Tuesday (Aug. 30) that it is bringing back paint sales to its stores.
The big-box retailer will carry more than 2,400 different colors and range of different paint brands, with everything from Easy Living for $2.49 to Weatherbeater at $33.99, according to USA Today.
Sears will also begin carrying painting accessories, like paintbrushes and drop cloths, and will have a sales team in each store to assist customers with purchases.
Sears stopped selling paint in 2012 but now plans to bring it back gradually, starting in a handful of stores before rolling it out to all its stores.
The return of paint — and possibly other home improvement accessories — could open up a new and badly needed revenue stream for Sears, which recently reported a loss of $395 million on its most recent quarterly earnings.
Sears is also investing more in appliances and home services and, in May, opened its first store that exclusively sells appliances.
