I'm assuming BB will get the UT and ST, maybe a variant of the GT, although at our store the GT31 didn't sell well at all because we have a Magnolia where the GT30 was always significantly cheaper.
There seems to be some confusion so ill clarify. Sears will be offering the ST50 line
, it will just not be stocked or displayed in stores. You can still go into any sears store and order the product to the store free or delivered to the home (cost varies) and take advantage of any in store promotions or order the unit from the comfort of your own home off .com.
As for the GT50, im not certain if that will be available in the same fashion as the st50. Last year one of our buyers i keep in touch with said if theres any product that he can get, he'll get it available on our website. So for samsung we offered through their D8000 and for panasonic through the GT30. Last i spoke to him, he was now buying for the kmart division, but i dont know if he bounces back and forth depending on the time of the year. I hope the replacement buyers have the same mentality of .com product availability.
BB will have through the ST50 in store. I was told they will not be getting a bundle product like the GT31 this year. Magnolia will have the GT/VT50.
