Featuring a revolutionary tough, thin-walled case of translucent polypropylene plastic, which was 50 percent thinner than conventional black rubber-type battery enclosures, the design&#39;s extra room meant bigger plates, more acid and extra starting power. During testing, not a single failure was reported in over 26,000 starts in temperatures ranging from sub-zero to more than 100 degrees, hence the name &quot;DieHard.&quot; See more DieHard history and compelling &quot;Battery Torture&quot; Video at <a href="http://www.diehard.com/" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">www.DieHard.com</a>.</p> <p><span class="xn-person">Larry Costello</span><br /> PR Director<br /> 847-286-9036<br /> <a href="mailto:Larry.Costello@searshc.com" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Larry.Costello@searshc.com</a></p> <div assettitle="DieHard Tires" hostedurl="https://photos.prnewswire.com/prnvar/20160620/381555" id="prni_dvprnejpg4b8fleftMSAsset718287" style="TEXT-ALIGN: left; WIDTH: 100%"><img align="middle" alt="Finally, a tire that lives up to its name.

Featuring a revolutionary tough, thin-walled case of translucent polypropylene plastic, which was 50 percent thinner than conventional black rubber-type battery enclosures, the design's extra room meant bigger plates, more acid and extra starting power. During <a href="http://www.diehard.com/torture-labs?sid=ipubx01152012x1234" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">testing</a>, not a single failure was reported in over 26,000 starts in temperatures ranging from sub-zero to more than 100 degrees, hence the name &quot;DieHard.&quot; See more DieHard history and compelling &quot;Battery Torture&quot; Video at <a href="http://www.diehard.com/?sid=ipubx01152012x1234" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">www.DieHard.com</a>. </p> <div> <table id="convertedTable4c40" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" border="1" class="prntblns"><tr> <td class="prngen2"> <p class="prnews_p"><span class="prnews_span"><b>MEDIA CONTACTS:</b> </span></p> </td> <td class="prngen2"><br/></td></tr> <tr> <td class="prngen2"> <p class="prnews_p"><span class="prnews_span">Larry Costello                                                                          </span></p> </td> <td class="prngen2"> <p class="prnews_p"><span class="prnews_span">Patrick Roach             </span></p> </td></tr> <tr> <td class="prngen2"> <p class="prnews_p"><span class="prnews_span">Sears Holdings                                                                        </span></p> </td> <td class="prngen2"> <p class="prnews_p"><span class="prnews_span">Zeno Group for DieHard                     </span></p> </td></tr> <tr> <td class="prngen2"> <p class="prnews_p"><span class="prnews_span">847-286-9036                                                                          </span></p> </td> <td class="prngen2"> <p class="prnews_p"><span class="prnews_span">312-396-4396  </span></p> </td></tr> <tr> <td class="prngen2"> <p class="prnews_p"><span class="prnews_span"><a class="prnews_a" href="mailto:Larry.Costello@searshc.com" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">Larry.Costello@searshc.com</a>                                                 </span></p> </td> <td class="prngen2"> <p class="prnews_p"><span class="prnews_span"><a class="prnews_a" href="mailto:Patrick.Roach@zenogroup.com" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">Patrick.Roach@zenogroup.com</a><b>  </b></span></p> </td></tr></table></div> <p>Logo - <a href="http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20160606/376171LOGO" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20160606/376171LOGO</a> </p> <p> </p> <p>SOURCE DieHard</p> Tue, 07 Jun 2016 07:00:00 -0500 http://searsholdings.mediaroom.com/index.php?s=16310&item=137440 Kmart Encourages Shoppers to be Superheroes for the March of Dimes® http://searsholdings.mediaroom.com/index.php?s=16310&item=137439 <h2 class="detail_subheader">Retailer calls upon members and customers to help give every baby a fighting chance</h2> <p class="release_data">Jun 6, 2016</p> <p><span class="xn-location">HOFFMAN ESTATES, Ill.</span>, <span class="xn-chron">June 6, 2016</span> /PRNewswire/ -- As the top corporate fundraiser for the March of Dimes, Kmart is leading the charge for another year of donations by calling on its Shop Your Way members and shoppers to join the fight and be a superhero for at-risk moms and babies.
