Share:

WRENS, Ga., Jan. 27, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sears Hometown and Outlet Stores, Inc. (NASDAQ: SHOS) opened its newest Georgia Sears Hometown Store earlier this week inside Jay's Ace Hardware, located at 101 Walden Street NW in Wrens.

The Wrens location marks the third opening of a new Sears Hometown Store this year and the third 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.

"As a trusted, locally-owned retailer, we saw a distinct void in the market. It was challenging to find top-of-the-line home appliances for a reasonable price," said Preston Bullock, owner of the new Sears Hometown Store in Wrens. "Through the Sears Hometown store-within-a-store program, we were able to use our existing floor space to add Sears Hometown product lines and improve our ability to provide value for the local shopper. We look forward to continuing to build our 25 year relationship with Jefferson County."

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

The Sears Hometown Store in Wrens can be reached at (706) 547-0040 and is open Monday through Saturday from 7:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. To learn more about Sears Hometown Stores, visit www.searshometownstores.com.
