Under new ownership, the Sears Hometown Store located at 3100 South Elliott Avenue in Aurora will celebrate its grand re-opening April 6 through April 7. Angie and Allan Cope, the store's new owners, are inviting the local community to enjoy an additional discount of 10 percent off almost everything in the store.

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.

The Aurora 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 Sears Hometown Store in Aurora is the only place in town where customers can find a 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, mattresses and more.

If a product is not available in-stores, Sears Hometown Store associates may 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 Aurora store also offers Sears Nationwide Service, Parts and Installation.
