Rent-A-Center Opens Store In Downers Grove

Rent-A-Center Manager Dwaine Sims and his three-person sales team are pleased to offer residents of Downers Grover an additional option when it comes to acquiring ownership of high-quality furniture, appliances, electronics and computers. “I’m very excited and definitely want the store to succeed,” said Sims. “I feel that it’s a perfect location to have a Rent-A-Center store.”

The new Rent-A-Center is located at 75 th Street and Lemont Road, Suite A and B3. Members of the community will welcome Rent-A-Center to the neighborhood at a grand opening celebration on Saturday, August 18, 2012 at 9:00 a.m. At the ribbon-cutting ceremony, Rent-A-Center is contributing $1,000 to the Family Shelter Service. Pamela Rasmussen, the Facilities and CDBG Administrator, expressed her appreciation for the contribution. “We are extremely grateful to Rent-A-Center for this generous donation to Family Shelter Service,” said Rasmussen. “The Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS) recently cut the funding to our Children’s Program, and this gift will help ensure a safer future for children affected by domestic violence.”
