The last time we’ve seen a Craftsman catalog was back in 2008 when the ’08-’09 catalog came out. Starting in 2009, with the Tools featuring Craftsman catalog, a sizable number of 3rd party brands were added to the catalog. Obviously, some Craftsman tools, most notably the open stock listings, were left out of the catalog. The 2009 holiday catalog followed the trend.
Then came the 2010 America’s Tool Headquarters Sears Blue Tool Crew catalog, which featured many 3rd party tools in addition to core Craftsman products For the ’10-’11 catalog, the cover was at least changed to feature an assortment of Craftsman wrenches.
Earlier this year, the 2011-2012 catalog came out, and this time it was called the Sears America’s Tool Headquarters Catalog. A few Craftsman tools adorned the cover, and this accurately reflected the shared spotlight within.
I just received the newest 2011-2012 catalog, and as you can see in the above scan, it’s officially a Craftsman catalog. However, its contents follows recent trends, and still includes “many other national brands.”
In an ideal world, I would like to see an annual full-line Craftsman catalog in addition to a mixed Sears Tool catalog. Two postcard advertisements slipped out of the catalog when I flipped through it. I would be willing to endure having to recycle a third or even forth postcard ad if it meant a full-like Craftsman catalog like the ones from 2008 and earlier. Am I right?

I received my copy of the new catalog the other day and I concur with your thoughts. It’s basically like they only changed the cover. The inside contents are pretty much the same, even on the same page numbers as the last catalog.
Two catalogs would be great. Just put the open stock listings back in the Craftsman catalog. I have asked for a copy of the open stock catalog several times and they never seem to send me a copy of it, instead I get more copies of this multi brand catalog.
I need the catalog for mechanic tools, for cars. Thank you !!!
I Want to Get a Craftsman Tool Catalog Including Tool Storage Boxes & Sales ???
How Do I BUY TOOL Storage Boxes, tool boxes in Stock in Hickory NC or Charlotte NC , For Pick Up ??? Getting any Deals ? I Would Like Rollaround Storage Boxes??
You can go to Sears (I wouldn’t anymore), Lowes, or Home Depot. Or shop online.
If you want Craftsman specifically, Stanley Black & Decker has since bought the brand, and you’ll find their tool storage in a limited selection at Lowes.
