Howard’s recently announced the grand opening of its largest-ever location in Howard’s portfolio of high-contact customer engagement centers in Agoura Hills, CA. Offering the widest selection of major appliances in California, the Agoura Hills store will cater to the shopping needs of affluent West Los Angeles County consumers in Agoura Hills, Thousand Oaks, Hidden Hills, Malibu, Calabasas, and other neighboring communities.

“We are excited to continue to grow Howard’s footprint and serve the retail needs of customers in Agoura Hills,” said John Riddle, CEO, of Howard’s. “As we introduce new Southern California stores, we fuel our brand partners’ expansion, particularly over the next five years as the pandemic-high use of major appliances and consumer durables hastens the end of life for these products.”

The new Agoura Experience Center suits the uniquely vibrant, and historic community with 12 stunning fully functional luxury kitchens and immersive showrooms. The retailer invites the region’s shoppers to see and explore connected appliances, in-store kiosks, and live product vignettes of active kitchens, laundry suites, and premium high-performance brands as they would function in a home before making a purchasing decision.

“Independent, regional major appliance and CE retailers like Howard’s introduce customers to a broader product array than what can be offered by big box stores with their limited inventory, need to carry many thousands of products and difficulty pivoting to meet the needs of GenX and Millennial customers. By necessity these locations cannot offer in-depth product knowledge,” adds Riddle. “Howard’s, though, provides comprehensive product displays, knowledgeable staff and professional home delivery and installation services. Our teams are fully trained in our innovative RARE initiative, meeting customers where they are for a flexible, straightforward and friction-free shopping experience.”

The new Experience Center is located at 28610 Canwood Street in Los Angeles County. Centrally located in the shopping corridor along the 101 freeway, and the expansive 35,000 sq. ft. Agoura Hills beats out even the Laguna Hills store, the previous largest location, by 2,000 sq. ft.

Howard’s Agoura Hills grand opening event takes place March 30-April 2. Residents of Agoura Hills and the surrounding communities are encouraged to attend and enjoy hands-on immersive product demonstrations, special savings, gifts-with-purchase and prize giveaways.
