MURPHY, Texas, 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 213 E.F.M. 544 in Murphy, Texas. 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-March 29. The Murphy 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. "Since major appliances, like refrigerators for instance, use the most energy in your home, they should be the first place you look to save money," said Evan Stull, store manager of the new Sears Home Appliance Showroom in Murphy. "Through our price-match policy, we offer top home appliance brands at the lowest price – guaranteed." 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 Murphy 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 Murphy 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 Murphy 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 Murphy location also offers installation and repair services from trained technicians.
