MARLTON, N.J., Aug. 27, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sears Hometown and Outlet Stores, Inc. (Nasdaq:SHOS) will open its newest New Jersey Sears Home Appliance Showroom on August 28, 2014 at 237 Route 73 South in Marlton. The new location will provide customers access to a full suite of top brand name home appliance merchandise at the lowest prices, by the Company's price-match policy.
The Marlton location marks the sixth opening of a new Sears Home Appliance Showroom Store this year and the 22nd opening of a new store across all of Sears Hometown and Outlet Stores formats. Unlike most retail concepts, Sears Home Appliance Showrooms combine the value, selection and services associated with larger retail stores but are owned and operated by a member of the local community.
"Our new Sears Home Appliance Showroom offers the local community great appliances at a competitive price with expert product knowledge right at their fingertips," said Monica Barbarano, store manager of the new Marlton location. "We focus on providing convenience and accessibility to the products our customers need and want. Our goal is to become a valuable community partner by striving to offer the highest-level of customer service and building relationships with local residents, businesses, organizations and community groups."
Proving to be at the forefront of retail trends, Sears Hometown and Outlet Stores, Inc. is embracing the practice of "showrooming" that many big-box home improvement, home goods and appliance retailers are running away from. Through the Company's price-match policy, the Marlton Sears Home Appliance Showroom guarantees the lowest price on the top appliance brands, and is equipped with an internet kiosk where customers are guided by sales staff to view similar products, price match with other retailers, and order products not available in the store.
The Marlton Sears Home Appliance Showroom offers all of the top 10 appliance brands, including exclusive names like Kenmore® that can only be found in the store formats of Sears Hometown and Outlet Stores, Inc., Sears Holdings Corporation and its respective affiliates. In addition to offering Kenmore, the Marlton store is the only place in town where customers can find an incredible selection of Maytag®, KitchenAid®, Whirlpool®, Bosch®, Frigidaire® and GE® appliances. The Marlton location also offers installation and repair services from trained technicians.
The Sears Home Appliance Showroom store in Marlton can be reached at (856) 983-1492 and is open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. and on Sunday from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. To learn more about Sears Home Appliance Showrooms, visit www.searshomeapplianceshowroom.com.
