The Toppenish location marks the third opening of a new Sears Hometown Store this year and the 11th opening of a new store across all of Sears Hometown and Outlet Stores formats.

"We want to create the most convenient shopping experience for our community by combining in-store shopping and online-to-store pick-up – giving them a one-stop resource for the products they want and need." The Toppenish team is excited to provide customers with professional advice, exceptional service and real-time price checks to make sure they receive the guaranteed lowest price. This unique store format allows customers in small communities to have access to the great products and brands usually found only in Sears stores. For instance, the new Sears Hometown Store in Toppenish is the only place in town where customers can find an incredible selection of the top appliance brands such as Kenmore®, Maytag®, KitchenAid®, Whirlpool®, Bosch®, Frigidaire® and GE®, plus a large assortment of lawn and garden equipment, Craftsman® tools, fitness equipment, electronics, mattresses and more.
