New Sears Hometown Store Opens in Champaign

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

CHAMPAIGN, Ill. - Sept. 9, 2014 // GLOBE NEWSWIRE // - Sears Hometown and Outlet Stores, Inc. (Nasdaq:SHOS) will open its newest Illinois Sears Hometown Store today, September 9, 2014 in the Marketview Shopping Center at 11 E. Marketview Drive in Champaign.

The Champaign location marks the 10th opening of a new Sears Hometown Store this year and the 23rd 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 look forward to providing the Champaign community the largest selection of home appliances, tools, mattresses, and lawn and garden equipment at the lowest possible price," said Humberto Alessandrini, local owner of the new Sears Hometown Store in Champaign. "Our highly-skilled Champaign team and in-store internet kiosks are ready to provide customers with expert product knowledge to ensure they're getting the best competitive pricing and the best product around - they can price check other retailers and read customer reviews right in our store."

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

The Sears Hometown Store in Champaign can be reached at (217) 355-3125 and is open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. and on Sunday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. To learn more about Sears Hometown Stores, visit
