Rent-A-Center Manager Jordan Bare and his three-person sales team are pleased
to offer residents of Fayetteville an additional option when it comes to
acquiring ownership of high-quality furniture, appliances, electronics and
computers.

“I’m excited that we’ve opened up here in Fayetteville, and I’m looking
forward to getting our name out there into the community,” said Bare. “We’re
going to treat our customers and coworkers like gold and make our name through
our great customer service. This store is going to grow, establish and truly
accomplish itself.”

The new Rent-A-Center is located at 3041 N. College St. Members of the
community will welcome Rent-A-Center to the neighborhood at a grand opening
celebration on Friday, February 1 at 2:00 p.m. At the ribbon-cutting ceremony,
Rent-A-Center is contributing $1,000 to the Boys and Girls Club of
Fayetteville. Paul Gerhki, youth development coordinator for the center,
expressed his appreciation for the contribution.

“The Boys and Girls Club of Fayetteville would like to thank Rent-A-Center for
their generous donation and involvement in the community,” said Gerhki.
“Without gifts such as these, we would not be able to serve approximately
10,000 children and adults each year.”

In conjunction with the grand opening ceremony, the store will also hold a
drawing for a 42” HD TV. To enter, simply visit the store. No purchase is
necessary.
