Indianapolis — h.h.gregg will open a new 23,000-square-foot store at the Dayton Mall in Ohio on Thursday, May 16, replacing the retailer’s older store in West Carrollton.
The new store will provide customers with “a modern, updated shopping experience, and the same knowledgeable sales staff,” the retailer said, and to celebrate, h.h.gregg will be giving away more than $30,000 in prizes to consumers and the Dayton community during the grand opening celebration — the largest amount in the company's history.
Customers will have a chance to register to win several prizes: a Sony Ultra High-Definition 64-inch TV, a Frigidaire French door fridge, a Sharp 70-inch TV, a Home Solutions living room set or a Samsung 8GB Android 4.2 tablet.
“h.h.gregg is dedicated to the Dayton community, and we think local residents will really enjoy shopping at our new and modern store,” said Jeff Pearson, marketing senior VP, h.h.gregg. “We hope that shoppers will come into the store during our grand-opening celebration to see the new layout and take advantage of our competitive pricing, grand opening specials and exciting prizes.”
All h.h.gregg stores located in the Dayton area will participate in a Grand Opening Sale from May 16-19, and customers will be able to take advantage of low prices and special financing options on a wide variety of appliances, electronics and furniture.
To express support for the Dayton community, the company is holding a contest to give away fitness equipment valued at more than $13,000 to local Dayton high schools and middle schools, the retailer noted.
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.
