Stocks in this article: ARCI

MINNEAPOLIS, Feb. 23, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Appliance Recycling Centers of America, Inc. (NASDAQ: ARCI) today announced that it has promoted Bradley S. Bremer to the newly created position of President of ApplianceSmart, Inc. (ApplianceSmart). Bremer had served as Vice President of ARCA's Retail Operations since February 2007.

As President of ApplianceSmart, Bremer holds responsibility for directing all aspects of the company, including the management of sales, marketing and operations for twenty stores in the Minnesota, Ohio, Georgia and Texas markets; a ninth store will be opened in Minnesota in 2012 bringing the national total to twenty-one stores. Bremer also oversees the planning and development of new ApplianceSmart stores, as well as customer programs and services.

Since joining ARCA in March 2000 until his promotion to Vice President of Retail Operations in 2007, Bremer served as Retail Operations Manager for the company's ApplianceSmart stores. His extensive experience in the appliance retailing industry also includes sales and management positions with Sears Brand Central and Montgomery Ward. Bremer is a graduate of the University of Minnesota Duluth.

Edward R. (Jack) Cameron, president and chief executive officer of ARCA, commented: "Since he joined ARCA twelve years ago, Brad has been instrumental in the continuing development of the ApplianceSmart superstore concept. At that time, we operated four ApplianceSmart stores in two markets and sold scratch-and-dent appliances we received from one appliance manufacturer. Under Brad's direction, we have expanded our retail network to 21 ApplianceSmart locations and are ranked as the 25th largest appliance retailer in the U.S., according to TWICE magazine. Brad's development of strong relationships with major appliance manufacturers, including Electrolux, GE, Whirlpool and Bosch, has enabled him to drive the growth of ApplianceSmart by expanding our product line to include new, innovative appliances, as well as continuing to stock close-outs, factory overruns, discontinued models and other special-buy appliances."

Cameron continued: "Brad's promotion to President of ApplianceSmart reflects the depth of his contribution to the company, his expertise in the appliance retailing industry and his leadership and team-building skills. I am confident that Brad will continue to demonstrate his ability to lead ApplianceSmart in the many years to come."
