New Sears Hometown Store Opens Inside Cowett Construction in Antlers

ANTLERS, Okla., March 15, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Sears Hometown and Outlet Stores, Inc. (NASDAQ:SHOS) recently opened its newest Oklahoma Sears Hometown Store inside Cowett Construction, located at 413837 State Highway 3 in Antlers.

The Antlers location marks the fifth opening of a new Sears Hometown Store this year and the fifth 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.

“Through our direct work with local businesses and homeowners, we saw a need for a larger assortment of products and services to complement their projects,” said Vince Cowett, owner of the new Sears Hometown Store in Antlers. “Adding the Sears Hometown Store gives our locally-owned business the buying power of a large department store that we didn’t have before. Without sacrificing our outstanding customer service and superior in-store experience, customers now have access to the top appliance brands at the lowest possible prices.”

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 Antlers 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 Antlers 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 Antlers store also offers Sears Nationwide Service, Parts and Installation.

The Antlers Sears Hometown Store can be reached at (580) 271-2770 and is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. To learn more about Sears Hometown Stores, visit www.searshometownstores.com.
