Independent Floor Covering in Fort Gratiot Adds On Sears Hometown Store

FORT GRATIOT, Mich., Nov. 10, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sears Hometown and Outlet Stores, Inc. (NASDAQ:SHOS) will open its newest Fort Gratiot Sears Hometown Store on November 10 inside the existing Independent Floor Covering location at 3842 Pine Grove in Fort Gratiot.

The Fort Gratiot location marks the 13th opening of a new Sears Hometown Store this year and the 14th 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.

“For several years, we have faithfully served the flooring needs of Fort Gratiot and its surrounding communities,” said Wing Thiele owner of Sears Hometown Store in Fort Gratiot. “The addition of a Sears Hometown Store into our existing floor space gives us the buying power of a large department store while retaining the distinctiveness of an independently-owned retailer. Now, we can offer the leading appliance brands at a competitive price while continuing to offer a superior in-store experience.”

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 Fort Gratiot 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 Fort Gratiot 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 Fort Gratiot store also offers Sears Nationwide Service, Parts and Installation.
