New Sears Hometown Store Opens in Plattsburgh


Local Retailer Offers Top Brand Home Appliances, Lawn and Garden Equipment, Tools, Mattresses and More at Guaranteed Lowest Price

PLATTSBURGH, N.Y., Jan. 17, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --  Sears Hometown and Outlet Stores, Inc. (NASDAQ: SHOS) opened its newest New York Sears Hometown Store today inside Choice Furniture, located at 594 State Route 3 in Plattsburgh.

The Plattsburgh location marks the second opening of a new Sears Hometown Store this year and the second 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.

Choice Furniture offers top brands for furniture and bedding, including La-Z-Boy, Serta, Simmons, Flexsteel, Klaussner and many other top quality brands at the best prices because Choice Furniture is part of the buying group Furniture First.

"As the owner of Choice Furniture, it made perfect sense to expand our product selection with the help of a nationally respected brand," said Jack Pirofsky, owner of the new Sears Hometown Store in Plattsburgh. "We're excited to introduce customers to our updated floor space and improved shopping experience. We're hoping to create a one-stop shop as they're making improvements in various areas of their homes."

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