FRANKLIN, Tenn., Nov. 10, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sears Hometown and Outlet Stores, Inc. (NASDAQ:SHOS) will open its newest Tennessee Sears Hometown Store on November 10 at 1415 Liberty Pike in Franklin. The Franklin location marks the 12th opening of a new Sears Hometown Store this year and the 13th opening of a new store across all of Sears Hometown and Outlet Stores formats. Unlike most retail concepts, Sears Hometown Stores combine the value, selection and services associated with larger retail stores but are owned and operated by a member of the local community. "We couldn't be more excited to bring the Franklin community a new option when it comes to their home appliance shopping," said William Talbot, owner of Sears Hometown Store in Franklin. "Our sales team is eager to begin helping our customers make the home appliance choice that fits their needs. We strive to make the shopping experience as convenient as possible; if we don't have an item you're looking for in stock, you can search our full line of products online and have it delivered or pick it up in store." 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 Franklin 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. The Franklin 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. For instance, if a product is not available in-stores, Sears Hometown Store associates can order customers any product from the entire merchandise selection offered by Sears, including apparel, footwear, jewelry and much more. Customers also have the option to order products online and pick them up in the store without a shipping charge. The Franklin store also offers Sears Nationwide Service, Parts and Installation.
