Baltimore
- hhgregg will open its first six stores on in the greater Baltimore area this Thursday as part of its
Mid-Atlantic build-out.

The 30,000-square-foot stores,
located in Annapolis, Bel Air, Canotnsville, Glen Burnie, Hanover and Towson, Md.,
will each hold grand-opening ceremonies including ribbon cuttings and
sweepstakes that afternoon.

"We are excited to expand our
footprint in the state of Maryland by opening
our first Baltimore
area stores," said marketing VP Jeff Pearson. "We think residents will be
pleased with the wide selection of appliances and electronics on display,"
which includes more than 100 TV models and inventory for more than 500 major
appliances.

The stores, part of the company's planned
45-unit rollout through the Mid-Atlantic States, will knock heads with
Baltimore-based The Big Screen Store, which operates 14 locations throughout Maryland and Virginia.
