Conn’s Expands Into New Orleans Market
Houston-based retailer Conn's, Inc. (NASDAQ: CONN) has announced its expansion into the New Orleans market, opening three new Conn’s HomePlus stores this year.
Beginning with a new location in the Manhattan Crossing shopping center in Harvey, located at 2424 Manhattan Blvd., the first store opened its doors to shoppers on Friday, Feb. 15.
The Harvey store marks Louisiana's eighth Conn's HomePlus, bringing total operating units to 124 dotted across 14 states. The New Orleans expansion will continue in Slidell and Metairie in late June, with a grand opening event to celebrate the new stores scheduled for this summer.
"We are excited to expand our footprint in Louisiana," said Norm Miller, chairman and CEO. "In addition to three new stores in New Orleans, we opened a second location in Baton Rouge, joining a store that is celebrating its 20th anniversary. This growth provides an opportunity for increased positive economic and philanthropic impact to the customers and communities in the area."
Offering area-residents an alternative for affordable home shopping, the new 45,000 sq. ft. Conn's HomePlus store showcases a variety of furniture, mattresses, appliances, consumer electronics and home office products. The store also provides brand differentiators, including flexible payment plans tailored to individual needs.
