New Sears Hometown Store Opens in Williamsburg

Local Retailer Offers Top Brand Home Appliances, Lawn and Garden Equipment,
Tools, Mattresses, and More at Guaranteed Lowest Price; Hosts Grand Opening
Celebration February 28 Through March 1 With Discounts and Special Giveaways

WILLIAMSBURG, Va., Feb. 27, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sears Hometown and Outlet
Stores, Inc. (Nasdaq:SHOS) announces the opening of a new Sears Hometown Store
located at 6623 Richmond Road in Williamsburg.

Celebrating its grand opening February 28 through March 1, the Sears Hometown
Store welcomes the local community to enjoy an additional discount of 10
percent off almost everything in the store* plus special giveaways, including
a $10 gift card for the first 20 customers on Saturday, March 1. Additionally,
the community is invited to stop by the store's block party on March 1 to
enjoy food, music and prize giveaways.

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.

"We're looking to provide Williamsburg community members with a local option
for all their shopping needs, giving customers a personalized shopping
experience," said John Jakob, owner of Sears Hometown Store of Williamsburg.
"Our highly skilled Williamsburg team and in-store internet kiosks provide our
customers with expert product knowledge to ensure they're getting the best
competitive pricing and the best product – they can price check other
retailers and read customer reviews right in store."

The Williamsburg 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. 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
Williamsburg 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.

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