ALBANY, Ore., March 24, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sears Hometown and Outlet Stores, Inc. (NASDAQ:SHOS) will open its newest Oregon Sears Hometown Store on March 24 at 2059 14th Ave in Albany.

The Albany location marks the 5th opening of a new Sears Hometown Store this year and the 5th 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 filling a void in the Albany community by providing a consultative and simplified shopping experience,” said Floyd Huff, owner of the new Sears Hometown Store in Albany. “Our store is able to showcase all of the top 10 appliance brands with new displays and innovative technologies backed by a brand certified and knowledgeable sales team. Shoppers will find that our refreshed approach to appliance retail is one of the reasons we are one of the nation’s most respected retailers.”

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 Albany 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 Albany 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 Albany store also offers Sears Nationwide Service, Parts and Installation.
