The LaBelle location marks the 12th opening of a new Sears Hometown Store this year and the 27th opening of a new store across all of Sears Hometown and Outlet Stores formats. Unlike most retail concepts, Sears Hometown Stores combine the value, selection and services associated with larger retail stores but are owned and operated by a member of the local community.

"We look forward to providing the LaBelle community the largest selection of home appliances, tools, and lawn and garden equipment at the lowest possible price," stated Daniel Peregrin, local owner of the new Sears Hometown Store of LaBelle. "Our highly skilled LaBelle team and in-store internet kiosks are ready to provide customers with expert product knowledge to ensure they're receiving the best competitive pricing and the best product around – they can price check other retailers and read customer reviews right in our store."

This unique store format allows customers in small communities to have access to the great products and brands usually found only in Sears stores. For instance, the new Sears Hometown Store in LaBelle is the only place in town where customers can find an incredible selection of the top 10 appliance brands such as Kenmore®, Samsung®, Amana®, LG®, Maytag®, KitchenAid®, Whirlpool®, Bosch®, Frigidaire® and GE®, plus a large assortment of lawn and garden equipment, Craftsman® tools, fitness equipment, electronics, mattresses and more.

The LaBelle team is excited to provide customers with professional advice, exceptional service and real-time price checks to make sure they receive the guaranteed lowest price. For instance, if a product is not available in-stores, Sears Hometown Store associates can order customers any product from the entire merchandise selection offered by Sears, including apparel, footwear, jewelry and much more. Customers also have the option to order products online and pick them up in the store without a shipping charge. The LaBelle store also offers Sears Nationwide Service, Parts and Installation.
