OXFORD, Miss., April 21, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Evolving to meet changing consumer needs and to embrace its nationwide branding as “America’s Appliance Experts®,” the refresh of four Sears Hometown and Outlet Stores in Mississippi culminates with a grand reopening celebration April 28-29, 2017 at the locations in Byram, Greenwood, McComb and Oxford. Throughout the celebration weekend, consumers are invited to enjoy an additional discount of 10 percent off almost everything in the store.*

America's Appliance Experts

The store refresh includes a new product assortment, redesigned merchandising, new fixtures & signage, and comprehensive employee training, among other changes.

“Our stores have always been known for our excellent appliance selection and our new refresh aims to help us maintain this reputation,” said Mario Bustamante, a district manager of Sears Hometown Stores in Mississippi. “Customers can expect an overall updated shopping experience with a modernized sales and customer service approach. We’ve worked diligently to train our sales teams to best guide guests and ensure they are happy with their purchase.”

In the new store design, appliances will occupy more than half of the sales floor and include more brands with an improved presentation. The stores will also focus its appliances on innovative and value-added products from LG®, GE®, Whirlpool®, Maytag®, KitchenAid®, Samsung® and Kenmore®.

The new floor plan also includes the ability to showcase complete kitchen packages through the addition of three kitchen vignettes. This allows stores to display an entire four-piece kitchen from multiple brands in a small amount of floor space, making it easier for customers to choose products. Another new feature that simplifies the buying process is a designated laundry innovation area, showcasing multiple brands and innovations that lets customers easily explore the differences between the various product lines.

As part of the refresh, the Mississippi Sears Hometown Stores provide industry leading comprehensive training to store associates, including brand specific selling certification. These brand certified sales associates help ensure customers find the best product for their needs at the best possible price. Mississippi customers also benefit from a new touch-screen kiosk where they can work with a salesperson or browse on their own to explore product options or make purchases. With the touch-screen kiosk, associates and customers can review product features and benefits as well as various models from the entire online database of Sears products – all while browsing models around the sales floor. Among major retailers, the Mississippi Sears Hometown Stores are leading the way for the integration of touch-screen devices into the sales process.

The Mississippi locations are part of a system-wide refresh of all Sears Hometown Store locations. The Company began updating units in 2015 and now has more than 560 “America’s Appliance Experts” locations across the United States.
