Lampert faces tough road as Sears CEO - Article Photos 1/1

In this Friday, Nov. 9, 2012, photo, a Sears store is shown in Hialeah, Fla. Shares of Sears Holdings fell Tuesday, Jan. 8, 2013, a day after the retailer announced that chairman and hedge fund billionaire Edward Lampert will take over the role of CEO. The investor queasiness came even as the Hoffman Estates, Ill.-based company offered an update on holiday sales that showed some improvements at its Sears stores. Overall, the company still faces a long, uphill battle to turn itself around. (AP Photo/Alan Diaz)
