Local Sears store earns national honor

The Sears Hometown Store of Susanville, California has been named a 2017 “Sears Hometown Premier Store” for consistently offering the highest level of customer service, as well as outstanding store performance and quality standards.

Located at 911 Main St., the store was one of only 234 locations throughout the company’s 720-plus unit system to receive this national recognition this past quarter.

“We strive to serve our community with the highest-level of customer service, so this recognition speaks volumes to the hard work and dedication of each and every one of our employees,” said Kevin Smith, owner and operator of the Sears Hometown Store in Susanville. “To be honored as a Premier Store is a direct reflection of their tenacity as well as the support of our community. We couldn’t have earned this achievement without either and want to thank our customers for their continued patronage.”

Approximately 35 percent of Sears Hometown Stores receive this prestigious award. As part of this honor, each Premier Store will be given the opportunity to participate in special events along with other Premier Stores throughout the year.

“Kevin and Kitty Smith and their employees set a prime example for all other stores in our system to follow,” said Will Powell, CEO and president of Sears Hometown and Outlet Stores, Inc., which operate Sears Hometown Stores. “Naming the Sears Hometown Store of Susanville as a Premier Store is a testament to their strong commitment in serving their local community above and beyond what is typically expected.”

Sears Hometown Stores are a unique retailing concept; they combine the value, selection and services associated with larger retail stores but are owned and operated by a member of the local community. Each location provides exceptional customer service along with a wide assortment of appliances, tools, electronics, fitness equipment as well as lawn and garden merchandise.

In addition, Sears Hometown Store associates can order customers any product from the entire merchandise selection offered by Sears Holdings Corporation, including apparel, footwear, jewelry and much more. This unique format allows customers in small communities to have access to the great products and brands usually found only in Sears stores.
