SEARS CATALOG TO STOP ACCEPTING PHONE ORDERS

 SKOKIE, Ill., May 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Due to the overwhelming response to the Sears Catalog "Sale of the Century" promotion, Sears said today it will no longer accept catalog telephone orders after May 27, 1993. Customer response has been so strong that catalog inventories are depleted to the point that most customer orders cannot be filled.
 Sears said it will gradually wind down telecatalog and catalog merchandise distribution centers and other parts of the business in the coming months. Customers will be able to call 800-758-8449 should they have any problems with catalog merchandise purchased prior to today's announcement. In those few areas still served by an independent catalog store, orders may still be placed at the store. However, availability, except for appliances and electronics, will be extremely limited.
 Sears announced the discontinuation of U.S. catalog operations in January as part of its restructuring.
