-A A +A

The Sears Hometown Store of Harriman has been named a 2011 Sears Hometown Store Premier Dealer.

This annual award recognizes Sears Hometown Stores across the country that consistently offer the quality customer service, outstanding store performance and standards and exceptional demonstrations of community involvement.

Harriman Sears is among only 190 stores from more than 800 locations throughout the U.S. to receive this national recognition.

“To be honored as a Premier Dealer is a great achievement not only for our store, but also for the community we strive to serve every day,” said Charlie Jones, owner and operator of the Sears Hometown Store in Harriman.

“We could not have earned this without the support of our community, and we want to thank our customers for shopping with us throughout the year.”

Only 20 percent of Sears Hometown Stores receive this prestigious annual award.

Each store receiving Premier Dealer status this year will be given the opportunity to participate in an exclusive charitable event in 2011 to help support their community.

Recent examples of charitable giving by the Harriman store include support for Relay for Life, Rittenhouse Emory River Half Marathon, Roane State Get Fit 5k Run and all high school yearbooks and sports fundraising in Roane County.

“We are thrilled to designate Charlie Jones and the Sears Hometown Store of Harriman a Premier Dealer as a testament to the hard work and dedication shown each and every day to support the community,” said Will Powell, president, Sears Hometown Stores.

“We are committed to continually assisting Hometown Stores and their communities, so that customers everywhere can shop closer to home and enjoy the quality and value found at Sears.”

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 community.

Sears Hometown Stores strive to provide exceptional customer service with a wide assortment of appliances, tools, electronics, fitness equipment and lawn and garden merchandise.

Sears Hometown Store associates can order anything from the entire selection of merchandise offered by Sears holdings, including apparel, footwear and jewelry.

This unique format allows customers in small communities to have access to the familiar quality  products and brands usually found only in Sears stores.

The Sears Hometown Store of Harriman is at 236 S. Roane St.
