This year marks two decades since Sears, Roebuck and Co. did a final run of its “Big Book” catalog, closing its catalog stores and shifting to a new retail model of locally owned and operated dealer stores.
Sears Hometown Store of Port Angeles, which opened in September of 1993, is one of 900 stores nationwide that came about as a result of that move.
Mary Galvin and Sandi Frantzi are two of the original 20 owners who have owned and operated their store since the launch of the Sears Hometown Store format.
To commemorate the anniversary, the store is featuring current versions of some popular items advertised in 1993, with the same or lower pricing than 1993 pricing.
Shoppers will also receive an anniversary scratch card for an additional “mystery discount” of up to an additional 20 percent off the shopper's entire purchase.
“Our store caters to the members of this community, since our first day as a Sears Hometown Store 20 years ago, we have built our business around a service model that places emphasis on helping a customer find exactly what they need at a great, low price,” Galvin said.
