Sears Hometown Makes Entry Into North Kingstown RI

New business entries into the North Kingstown community are welcome andSears Hometown North Kingstown RI store big box stores have to fit into the location.  We have Kohl's, TJ Maxx, Walmart, Home Depot to name a few businesses set off by themselves and they do supply jobs and can be a good employer.  This week Sears Hometown opened up in the shopping plaza next to TJ Maxx on Post Road and the reason I knew it was there was because of the Patch.
If you are like me now, most of my current local and national news comes from online. So  this store is a smaller version of the big box Sears and has tools to vacuum cleaners.  That was the key word 'vacuum cleaner'.  It fit in nicely in the town and became another contributor to the tax base!
See I have a vacuum cleaner as old as ever with a missing wheel! Everyone laughs at me in the family but I loved that canister vac that cost me next to nothing and did a great job.  Time for its replacement was in order and after dropping my clients off yesterday I was heading up to the big box Sears in Warwick when the light bulb moment went off in my head and made me pull the car over.  Support local newly employed store employees in the small Sears Hometown store was on my mind.
I made a quick u-turn and pulled in and went into the North Kingstown Sears store.  Friendly employees, customers milling around and checking the new store out and me ready to buy a new vacuum!  It was vacuum sale week and I knew I lucked out.  Highly rated Kenmore vacuum by Consumer Reports was what I was looking for and they had my make and model.  My salesman in training. Richard, was super helpful, he let me vacuum their rugs so I could test the vacuum out and he made a great sale by being very informative.  There is something to be said when the customer service is amazing and one is treated warmly and yes, makes you feel at home.  Would I recommend Sears Hometown to my RI real estate clients?  Most definitely!
Supporting local business is what is best for my North Kingstown community.  It is what I try to do everyday and I hope you do too!

I am glad to hear that Sears is carrying on and opening other stores. I have not heard of the Sears Hometown brand. I wish it much success.

Ginny, It's nice to see Sears move into the area.

LOL. Sounds familiar. My old canister vacuum is a beat up disaster but she works! They don't make them like that any more.

Anita, great experience and a tax paying business!

Janis, I needed a vacuum so badly...

Debbie, I don't know if this is a small foray into smaller is better...they can order anything for you and have it delivered to home or store too.

Hi Ginny,

It's really nice when a store and it's employees do what the say they can and will do when a customer comes through the door. That is rare these days. Seems most of the Other places have an attitude.

Have a good day in North Kingstown.

Best, Clint McKie

Ginny - It certainly is better to support the local folks - otherwise, our home towns may become ghost towns with no employment.

Ginny, what a great addition to North Kingstown, RI!     I have not seen these "hometown stores", and will need to see if they have started building here.

Ginny, Sears is a name well known through out the country, and whether it is the full Sears store or a smaller version, it is a big plus to have them in town.
