Lakeside, Mich. – ABC Warehouse is the first dealer in its trading area to carry LG’s 84-inch Ultra High-Definition Cinema 3D smart TV.
The 4K display had a soft launch at the Midwest chain’s Detroit metro-area store, here, where it sold nine of the $17,000 models without the benefit of advertising.
The 84LM9600 will formally go on display at the store at 6 p.m. tonight, where LG representatives will conduct demos and giveaways of a Blu-ray player, 3D home-theater system, and 42-inch and 60-inch TVs.
“We have always taken pride in being able to offer our customers products that are on the cutting edge of what’s available on the market,” said ABC president/CEO Martin Hartunian. “We are excited to be the first to unveil LG’s new Ultra HD Cinema 3D smart TV in our region. This product will create a home entertainment experience like no other.”
ABC sells CE, majap and mattresses out of 43 big-box stores throughout Michigan, Ohio and Indiana. The 84LM9600 was introduced at the 2012 International CES and made its retail debut at Video & Audio Center in October, followed by rollouts to Abt and Micro Center in January.
This TWICE webinar, hosted by senior editor Alan Wolf, will take a look at what may be the hottest CE products at retail that will be sold during the all-important fourth quarter. Top technologies, market strategies and industry trends will be discussed with industry analysts and executives.
