With the recent news surrounding Sears Holdings Corporation, the Sears Hometown Store in Walterboro 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. (NASDAQ: SHOS), which separated from Sears Holdings Corporation in October 2012 and is a completely separate, publicly-traded company. With this separation, news 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 Walterboro Sears Hometown Store. 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.
“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 Teresa Busbee, owner of Sears Hometown Store in Walterboro.
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 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, mattresses and more.
“Our store is thriving, and looking forward to being a valued community partner in Walterboro for many years to come,” Busbee added. “Our 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 Walterboro store also offers Sears Nationwide Service, Parts and Installation.”
