October 01, 2014 // Franchising.com // APEX, N.C. - Sears Hometown and Outlet Stores, Inc. (Nasdaq:SHOS) will open its newest North Carolina Sears Home Appliance Showroom on October 2, 2014 at the Beaver Creek Crossings shopping center, located at 2016 Creekside Landing Drive in Apex. The new store will provide customers access to a full suite of top brand name home appliance merchandise and mattresses at the lowest prices, by the Company's price-match policy.
The Apex location marks the 7th opening of a new Sears Home Appliance Showroom Store this year and the 26th opening of a new store across all of Sears Hometown and Outlet Stores formats. Unlike most retail concepts, Sears Home Appliance Showrooms combine the value, selection and services associated with larger retail stores but are owned and operated by a member of the local community.
"It's often challenging to find top-of-the-line home appliances for a reasonable price," said James Kirby, owner of Sears Home Appliance Showroom store in Apex. "We offer the leading appliance brands, including exclusive Kenmore products, at a competitive price you just can't pass up. Plus, with our highly-skilled team members and our onsite internet kiosks, customers have expert product knowledge right at their fingertips."
Proving to be at the forefront of retail trends, Sears Hometown and Outlet Stores, Inc. is embracing the practice of "showrooming" that many big-box home improvement, home goods and appliance retailers are running away from. Through the Company's price-match policy, the Apex Sears Home Appliance Showroom guarantees the lowest price on the top appliance brands, and is equipped with an internet kiosk where customers are guided by sales staff to view similar products, price match with other retailers and order products not available in the store.
The Apex Sears Home Appliance Showroom offers all of the top 10 appliance brands, including exclusive names like Kenmore® that can only be found in the store formats of Sears Hometown and Outlet Stores, Inc., Sears Holdings Corporation and its respective affiliates. In addition to offering Kenmore, the Apex store is the only place in town where customers can find an incredible selection of Maytag®, KitchenAid®, Whirlpool®, Bosch®, Frigidaire® and GE® appliances, as well as a large assortment of mattresses. The Apex location also offers installation and repair services from trained technicians.
