With the recent news surrounding Sears Holdings Corporation, the Sears Hometown Store in Oak Ridge said Wednesday that it wants to assure local residents “they are going strong and will continue providing the community access to the brands they love and need.”
Sears Hometown locations operate under Sears Hometown and Outlet Stores Inc., which separated from Sears Holdings Corporation in October 2012 and is a completely separate, publicly-traded company, a press release said.
“With this, news reports from Sears Holdings Corporation about its performance or store closings are in no way a reflection of the health of Sears Hometown and Outlet Stores or the Oak Ridge Sears Hometown Store,” the press release said. “Plus, 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.”
The Oak Ridge store is locally owned and operated.
“We want to make sure our customers know that we are here to stay and will continue to provide the wonderful community with the same top-notch products, unparalleled customer service, and incomparable store experience they have come to expect from us,” said Leslie Agron, owner of Sears Hometown Store in Oak Ridge.
The press release said the local retailer, which provides customers with access to a full suite of merchandise and services, is the only place in town where customers can find a selection of 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, mattresses, and more.
“Our store is thriving and looking forward to being a valued community partner in Oak Ridge for many years to come,” Agron said.
The press release said the Oak Ridge Sears Hometown team provides customers with professional advice, exceptional service, and real time price checks to make sure customers get the guaranteed lowest prices around. The Oak Ridge store also offers Sears nationwide service, parts, and installation.
