    Thank you, your TPR DBA address in Chicago may explain (finally) why Chicago-based Sears sells Kenmore [] appliances. Us Boston folk have wondered if their old, elegant Regional admin and warehouse at 309-401 Park Drive / 201 Brookline Ave [] (near Kenmore Sq and Fenway Park, now the "Landmark Center" [], a urban-mall theatre/Staples/BestBuy) was really that great an influence on a Chicago chain. If the Sears household appliance line is named for a street in Chicago, or the town the street is named for, that makes much more sense.

    (One doubts Mrs. Sears taking residence in Brookline had anything to do with it.)

    • I think the streets are named for the appliances. I've been trying to find out the origins for the names of the streets around me, but I haven't figured out Kenmore yet.

      There are an amazing number of household names that come out of Chicago though. This month's Chicago magazine goes through most of the roster. :)
