The Mason City location marks the 2nd opening of a new Sears Hometown Store this year and the 2nd 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 are eager to begin filling a need within the local community for a top-notch shopping experience without all the hassle,” said Kirk Johnson, owner of the Sears Hometown Store in Mason City. “Our Sears Hometown Store provides a large selection of products coupled with a helpful and knowledgeable sales team who is ready to match your needs with the latest features and top name brands in home appliances. It is refreshing to walk into our store and see how we’ve revolutionized the decision-making process.”

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 Mason City is the only place in town where customers can find an incredible selection of the top appliance brands such as Kenmore®, 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 Mason City 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 Mason City store also offers Sears Nationwide Service, Parts and Installation.
