Well folks, it looks like Oops50.com is in trouble. So many people are reading our blog, including Kmart (representing Sears Holding Management Co.) lawyers because we got a letter from them electronically and a hard copy delivered by FedEx today.
It seems, in our post Do you know about the Discounts for Baby Boomers dated Feb. 28, 2012, we included Kmart on a list of retailers who give a 20% discount for people over 50. Well, I’m not sure if tons of folks were flocking to Kmart as a result of our blog post, but somehow their lawyers found out about it and wrote us a letter stating that:
1) We must remove the incorrect information from the website- DONE
2) Print a correction or retraction on our website to inform our readers- DOING THAT NOW
3) Provide them with the source of this misinformation, and any other print or electronic media outlets to whom we have given this info, so they may similarly inform others of this mistaken information-DONE
So fellow baby boomers, we apologize for the misinformation to you and to Kmart and hope you will continue to read our blog anyway and shop at Kmart.
