Sears Key Copy Services

Sears does not have its own key-making services, store associates at several locations confirmed. However, The Keyless Shop operates stands at several Sears locations. The Keyless Shop provides key duplication services for door keys, car keys, and more. In fact, The Keyless Shop is able to make copies of complicated keys, as long as the key is not restricted for copying by the manufacturer. Standard door keys, traditional car keys, and simple chip keys can be made in five minutes or less. For complex transponder keys, key fobs, smart keys, and other keys that require programming, the process can take up to 30 minutes, customer service representatives said. In addition to key duplication, The Keyless Shop offers lost key replacement, broken key repair, and auto locksmithing services.
