Sears Appliance & Hardware debuts smaller store format

BY Staff Writer

Hoffman Estates, Ill. — Sears Appliance & Hardware has debuted a smaller, neighborhood model format that will become a company standard for all new locations going forward. The new store, in Dallas, is also the first brand new Sears Appliance & Hardware store to open in the past ten years.

While the average Sears Appliance & Hardware Store is between 22,000 sq. ft. and 25,000 sq. ft., the model ranges from to 16,000 sq. ft. to 18,000 sq. ft., yet still offers the same size and quality of inventory. Additionally, any item unavailable in store can be ordered and delivered straight to the door of the consumer.

"No major portion of our inventory was impacted with the decision to launch the smaller version of our Sears Appliance & Hardware Store format," said Rudy Mazak, divisional VP of Sears Hometown and Outlet Stores, Inc. "We are able to maximize our traditional hardware and tool assortments while still maintaining the breadth and depth of our traditional appliance and lawn and garden lines. Plus, our customers are not limited to what is on the sales floor — we have a multichannel capability that provides an unmatched convenience for consumers."

In addition to Dallas, the new, smaller neighborhood model has been introduced in Big Rapids, Mich., and Cedar City, Utah.

Sears
Reviving a format that's been dormant for ten years is just another sign of Sear's futile attempt to stave off its impending demise.
