LOUISVILLE, Ky., March 25, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sears Hometown and Outlet Stores, Inc. (Nasdaq:SHOS) announces the opening of a new Sears Home Appliance Showroom store located at 10520 Westport Road in Louisville, Ky. The new store, which will provide customers with access to a full suite of top brand home appliance merchandise and mattresses at the lowest prices by the Company's price-match policy, is hosting its grand opening celebration March 28-29. The Louisville team welcomes the local community to enjoy an additional discount of 10 percent off almost everything in the store* plus special giveaways, including a chance to win a free washer and dryer valued at $1,439.98. "It's often challenging to find top-of-the-line home appliances for a reasonable price," said Aaron Bailey, store manager of the new Sears Home Appliance Showroom in Louisville. "We offer the leading appliance brands, including exclusive Kenmore products, at a competitive price you just can't pass up." 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 a price-match policy, the Louisville 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 Louisville 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 Louisville 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 Louisville location also offers installation and repair services from trained technicians.
