    Franchise Interviews Meets with the Sears Hometown and Outlet Stores Franchise

    in Business

    We are meeting with Scott Nichols, Director of Franchise Business Development for Sears Hometown and Outlet Stores. 



    The Outlet stores (Sears Outlet) are designed to provide customers with in-store and online access to purchase new, one-of-a-kind, out-of-carton, discontinued, obsolete, used, reconditioned, overstocked and scratched and dented products across a broad assortment of merchandise categories, including home appliances, apparel, mattresses, sporting goods, tools and lawn and garden equipment at prices that are significantly lower than manufacturers’ suggested list prices.


     



    Sears Outlet is the oldest of the four store formats and was established in 1968. The newest format, Sears Home Appliance Showroom, was introduced in late 2007. The majority of its stores are Sears Hometown Stores, a format which grew from the legacy Sears catalog stores and celebrated its 20th anniversary in 2013.
