MINNEAPOLIS, May 29, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Appliance Recycling Centers of America, Inc. (NASDAQ: ARCI) today reported that ApplianceSmart, Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary, has become a dealer for Samsung Appliances through a partnership with Almo Corporation. Samsung, which is one of the fastest growing home appliance brands in the U.S., will allow ApplianceSmart to expand its service offerings and provide additional affordable appliance options for value-conscious consumers.

Bradley Bremer, President, ApplianceSmart, Inc., commented, "We are constantly assessing our manufacturer and product offerings so that we can have the most robust and affordable options for consumers who are shopping for significant discounts on innovative major appliances.
