I will be the first to admit I know nothing about business mergers of any kind. So I really don't understand why the company that had the most customers from what I have read was bought by the other company And also from what I have read that I can understand both companies are close to drowning in red ink. So now we just have one company, but isn't all that red ink still there?

As I recall K-Mart had been having some money problems, but when it came to just size I believe they had a lot more stores than Sears. But I could be mistaken about that. In fact knowing me and business news I probably am mistaken
sorta like how Kmart bought Sears,
