Sears, 5/22 — Sizzling Savings on Craftsman, Maytag, Sony & More
Sears has redesigned its emails, changing the navigation bar, adding a search field and simplifying its body design. Sears started using the new design with a May 14 email.
In the navigation bar, they added a Gifts department and changed the name of its Electronics department to Electronics & Computers. Above the nav bar, they added a search field in the spot where they had previously put small promotional messages. And in the body of the message, I think they really cleaned up the design, using more white space and simple line rules as section dividers.
Here is the new design in yesterday’s email (left) next to the old design from a May 11 email:
