The great indoors concept was much different from any recent Sears or Kmart concept. Each middle section of the store focused on a section of a house such as the great bathroom, the great bedroom, the great kitchen, and the great room. Some of the areas had sample bathrooms or kitchens to showcase their products. The edges of the store had appliances, tile, carpet, blinds, lighting, and furniture. The concept carried higher end products for the home than most items found in Sears stores. Also the prices were high in comparison with Lowe's, Home Depot, and Ikea. Since Sears is focusing on their core operations of Sears and Kmart; this concept was closed.
The store was huge at 150,000+ square feet of sales space. This was the view when you walk in the front door. There were two locations in Houston at one time Willowbrook (closed in 2011) and I-10 West near Beltway 8 pictured here.
The kitchen appliance section carried the higher dollar Kenmore and other Sears brand appliances.
At one time there must have been a cafe here, but it was filled with outdoor furniture even before the closing sale.
There are several corny quotes posted in the far sections of the store.
Another goofy quote.
