... One guy was a licensee with Sears, Roebuck & Company from 1977-2000.. His store was named the Sears Stamp & Coin Department and was located within a Sears store in an upscale mall in Clearwater Florida. ...
So it would seem, then, that a licensee could name their shop whatever they wanted within certain guidelines set forth by Sears. Sears Stamp & Coin Department, Sears Coin Shop, Sears Coin & Stamp, Sears Coins, and so on. All packaging would also be the sole responsibility of the licensee.
Interesting posts. Reminded me of going to "Sears" in the 50's when I was a little younger and seeing all the different things they had to offer. I started searching around and found the attached. Looks like this guy had or has a B&M shop as well as a Sears shop. The article from one of his customers is interesting.

As someone who has a "radio face" myself, I'm kinda shocked that this gentleman would plaster his face all over his ads... 😂🤦‍♂️🤷‍♂️
