Sears Hometown Store and LOVET Furniture Enter Hayes Market

HAYES, Va., April 19, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sears Hometown and Outlet Stores, Inc. (NASDAQ:SHOS) is opening its newest Virginia Sears Hometown Store inside LOVET Furniture located in the Hayes Plaza Shopping Center at 2352 George Washington Memorial Highway.

The Hayes location marks the sixth opening of a new Sears Hometown Store this year and the sixth 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.

“The addition of Sears Hometown Stores into our space will be the perfect complement to our existing product lines at LOVET Furniture,” said Joel Canepa, owner of Sears Hometown Store in Hayes. “By doing so, we are fulfilling a void within the community for a leading name brand appliance retailer. With help from our knowledgeable staff, shoppers will now be able to make their furniture and appliance buying decisions all in one place.”

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