Sears is facing a social media boycott after the company said it planned to pay millions in bonuses to keep executives on board while cutting approximately 2,900 jobs, without severance. The retailer’s Facebook page has been flooded with comments from people vowing not to shop at Sears, and the hashtag #BoycottSearsCanada has been trending on Twitter. Sears Canada began liquidation sales on Friday at 59 department and Sears Home stores slated for closure.
