May 07, 2014 // Franchising.com // BOISE, Idaho – Sears Hometown and Outlet Stores, Inc. (NASDAQ: SHOS) will open its newest Idaho Sears Outlet Store on May 8 at 8033 W. Franklin Rd. in Boise.
The Boise location marks the fourth opening of a new Sears Outlet Store this year and the eighth opening of a new store across all of Sears Hometown and Outlet Stores formats. Unlike most retail concepts, Sears Outlet Stores combine the value, selection and services associated with larger retail stores but are owned and operated by a member of the local community.
A Sears Hometown and Outlet Stores franchisee since 1995, the new Boise location owner Dan Lister, also owns a Sears Appliance and Hardware Store in Ponderay, ID.
"Our new Sears Outlet Store in Boise offers the local community an extensive selection of entry-level priced and high-end home appliances, furniture, grills, lawn mowers, patio furniture, small kitchen appliances, home goods and more – all at an incredible value," said Dan Lister, franchise owner of the new Sears Outlet store in Boise. "With an assortment of fresh merchandise each week, our goal is to simplify the Outlet shopping experience by providing exceptional customer service so our customers can find exactly what they need or want. We look forward to becoming Boise’s go-to shopping destination for quality products at a competitive price."
Each Sears Outlet Store, on average, offers shoppers more than 18,000 square feet of retail space stocked with hundreds of items marked significantly lower than manufacturers' suggested retail prices. Each location provides customers in-store and online access to new, one-of-a-kind, discontinued, used, reconditioned, overstocked, and cosmetically blemished products across a broad assortment of merchandise categories - including home appliances, furniture, lawn and garden equipment, apparel, mattresses, sporting goods and tools.
In addition to discontinued and special-buy products, Sears Outlet offers reconditioned merchandise that undergoes a stringent testing process and, when necessary, have cosmetic parts replaced and/or repaired before becoming approved to be an Outlet Certified item. Customers purchasing a Certified Appliance or other item from a Sears Outlet Store should expect significant discounts off the original retail price, a fully functional and operational unit, and the assurance that the unit still meets Sears quality standards as the nation's leading retailer of appliances and appliance-related products. Customers also benefit from delivery and installation services offered by Sears Outlet.
The Sears Outlet Store in Boise can be reached at (208) 323-8000 and is open Monday through Saturday from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. and on Sunday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. To learn more about Sears Outlet Stores, visit http://www.searsoutlet.com/.
