Funny you should mention the virtues of Etrade....a couple weeks back, I had a comrade who became interested in bonds after hearing me talk about them. He had a good deal of money in a Fidelity account and thought it might be a good idea to roll some of the money his mutual funds made during the bull market into something safer. Given that money markets pay close to nothing, he thought investment grade bonds might be a good idea. However, the bond search engine on Fidelity was more difficult to use and always came up with fewer selections than Etrade.

Regarding Sears, I think it's a reasonably safe bet that they'll muddle along for another five years. I fear they'll be gone in ten years, though.
