Just under three years ago Peter Myers, Brother of comedic actor Mike Myers, convinced his brother to do a commercial with him about the future of Sears Canada. Peter, at the time, was a 32 year veteran of the Canadian Retailer and was hoping a little star power would help spread the word that Sear Canada was here to stay despite the word on the street. It convinced me. Didi it convince you?
Well no sooner had Sears announced it’s latest round of lay offs and store closures did we learn that Peter was one of the 2700 affected employees who’s job was eliminated. Along with being fired, most of, if not all, of these employees will lose their pension as well.
A sad end to a promise made with a celebrity’s brother. Peter Myers… we hardly knew ye. ~Bill
