A objection: If I dont live in USA I don't know what Kmart and Sears are. I better title would be welcome.--carlosar 01:15 Nov 18 2004 (UTC)

That's a very good point; I'm not sure how to solve it without making the title very unwieldly. Should it say "Retailers Kmart, Sears to merge"? "American retailer Kmart to buy Sears"? --Golbez 09:14, 18 Nov 2004 (UTC)
I prefer the current title (and I come from a country where Sears doesn't operate). The alternatives are too unwieldy. The issue would be solved somewhat by putting it in a business section on the main page. Ambi 12:52, 18 Nov 2004 (UTC)
