Ready to rumble over the last Craftsman drill? Take off the gloves; it will make it a lot easier to dial up your purchases.

Sears just announced, a website that allows shoppers to call up purchases via any web-enabled cell phone. Pick from tools, toys, electronics, clothes or other categories, make your purchase, and then choose whether you want in-store pickup or home delivery.

Overall, there aren’t too many categories, but that should make the shopping experience less annoying. Sometimes all of that scrolling is worse than waiting in line. The site also has a search feature if you just want to cut to the chase.

If you want to brave the store’s parking lot and other areas, the site will actually send you a text to alert you when your purchase is ready. That should mean that you won’t be standing around waiting.

To start shopping, text SHOP to 73277 or visit from your phone.
