The company began operations in 1952 as Simpsons-Sears Limited, which was a mid-market suburban and catalogue retailer. It was created as a joint-venture between Sears, Roebuck and Co., and the Robert Simpson Company. Simpsons-Sears has expanded in the metropolitan areas since 1973, opening its first stores under the Sears banner. Sears rebranded all existing stores too. With the 1999 acquisition of the T. Eaton Company Limited, the company acquired the leases for many prime locations in Victoria, Vancouver, Toronto, Ottawa, Calgary, and Winnipeg.

Sears Canada offers a large selection of furniture items, appliances, women and men clothing, accessories, jewelry and watches, and more.
