The Woodlands, Texas – Conn’s has opened four more HomePlus locations, bringing its store count up to 80.
Two of the stores are located in the recently opened markets of Arizona (Chandler) and New Mexico (Albuquerque), and the other pair is in the company’s core markets of Texas (Amarillo) and Louisiana (Shreveport).
It is expected to open its first stores in Colorado this quarter.
Besides expanding into new markets, Conn’s has been busy replacing older locations and opening new ones with its new HomePlus store format. The larger, 35,000-square-foot showrooms devote more selling space to its explosive furniture and bedding categories, and have boosted comp-store sales by 10 percent to 15 percent over older store models.
The majap, CE and furniture chain opened 14 new stores and remodeled or relocated 11 existing locations during its current fiscal year, for a total of 52 HomePlus showrooms out of its 80 locations across five states.
