Sears Home Appliance Showrooms Unveil New Look

National Retailer Hosts System-Wide, Re-Grand Opening Celebration With Two-Day
Sale, October 25-26

HOFFMAN ESTATES, Ill., Oct. 23, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- To make shopping for
appliances an easier experience for consumers, Sears Home Appliance Showrooms
has completely revamped its interior. The updated sales floor presentations
include a new merchandising layout allowing showrooms to expand key lines such
as built-in cooking, cooktops, and laundry, and improve customer shopping
experiences with new displays of dishwashers and floor care.

Since August 2013, more than 60 of the Showrooms have been updated to the new
expanded presentation. This new floor plan will be the company standard moving
forward with all new locations.

"With our new showroom model, we're not increasing the size of our sales
floors, but rather, better utilizing our floor space to expand our merchandise
offerings and showcase our products. This, in turn, will help our dedicated
sales force provide customers with a higher level of service," said Susan
Hilsenbeck, Division Vice President, Merchandising at Sears Hometown and
Outlet Stores, Inc. "Customers can expect to find a simplified layout, better
showcasing our dishwashers, cooktops, and built-in cooking appliances,
including an expanded wall oven display. Plus, our laundry has also expanded,
featuring additional top-load high-efficiency and front-load washers and
dryers."

To celebrate the new look, Sears Home Appliance Showrooms will promote a
nationwide event this weekend, Oct. 25-26. Customers can save on the following
items during the two-day sale: 50% off all Kenmore^®, Kenmore Elite, and
Kenmore Pro Wall Ovens over $499 with their Sears Card; 35% off all other
Kenmore Cooking Appliances over $499 with their Sears Card; and up to 30% off
all other Kenmore Appliances over $499 with their Sears Card.

In addition to offering the exclusive Kenmore brand, Sears Home Appliance
Showrooms also offer an incredible selection of the top appliance brands such
as Maytag^®, Whirlpool^®, KitchenAid^®, Bosch^®, Frigidaire^®, Samsung^®, and
GE^®. The showrooms guarantee the lowest price on the top appliance brands
through a price-match policy, and offer installation and repair services from
trained technicians.
