THE SEARS HOMETOWN DIFFERENCE
Starting your own business can be both a rewarding and complex process. As one of America's premier retailers, Sears Hometown makes it easy for you. Unlike many other dealer and retail franchise concepts, Sears Hometown offers smart business models that allow you to do what you do best – develop and maintain relationships with both customers and the community. There is a low cost of entry with no inventory investment, license fees, or transportation expense.
Sears Hometown & Outlet provides continuous marketing support throughout the life of your retail business. Through weekly circulars, weekly updates of digital and social media platforms, seasonal programs, rebranding opportunities and ongoing cause-related local and national marketing partnerships, Sears Hometown & Outlet invests over $40 million annually across all the Hometown format stores.
Sears Hometown & Outlet ensures you will have access to an experienced retail franchise development team who will guide you through market analysis, site location, lease negotiations and construction/retrofit. Additionally, we will provide assistance with fixture set up and merchandising the store, as well as preparing for your opening.
TRAINING AND SUPPORT
Sears Hometown invests considerable time and resources to help our owners be successful. New Owners receive extensive training and support which continues throughout the ownership of your store. This continuous support of our owners is a priority, because we are successful only when you are successful!
