Lexington ColorTyme expands to offer more products and services
Owner Shawn DiLeo moves store to larger location, plans to add payday loans
July 18, 2011 // Franchising.com // LEXINGTON, KY – An updated look is not all that's new for the local ColorTyme rent-to-own store. Now located at 1315 Winchester Rd., the store occupies a larger space to provide a greater mix of products and services for Lexington residents.
"By relocating the store, our goal is to expand on the quantity of brand-name products at the best price that we can give our customers. A larger space will also allow us to offer other services such as payday loans," said Shawn DiLeo, the store's owner.
On top of offering the latest in name-brand appliances, furniture and electronics, ColorTyme provides convenient payment options without a credit check. Customers can also enjoy delivery, set-up and installation at no additional charge during the rental period.
DiLeo feels that going the extra mile in customer service and providing a hometown shopping experience is what sets ColorTyme apart as the best choice in rent-to-own. "We believe buying or renting products shouldn't be like making a utility payment. That's why we provide an experience that is above any other rent-to-own store; one that will make customers enjoy shopping with us again and again," said DiLeo. "We invite everyone to come see us in our new location and discover the first-class service and unbeatable prices that ColorTyme of Lexington is known for." The relocated ColorTyme will celebrate its grand opening on Friday, Aug. 5.
