Appliance Recycling Centers of America (ARCA) Announces Plans to Open the Sixth ApplianceSmart Factory Outlet in Atlanta Market

Appliance Recycling Centers of America (ARCA) Announces Plans to Open the Sixth ApplianceSmart Factory Outlet in Atlanta Market and Twentieth Outlet Nationally

PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Appliance Recycling Centers of America, Inc. (NASDAQ:ARCI) today announced that it will open a 24,920 square-foot ApplianceSmart Factory Outlet in Conyers, Ga., in January 2009 to serve the southeastern suburbs of the Atlanta metropolitan area.

Located at 1380 Dogwood Drive, S.E., the outlet is part of the Conyers Plaza I Shopping Center. The new factory outlet will be ApplianceSmart's sixth location in the Atlanta market and twentieth outlet nationally. The five other Atlanta outlets are located in Norcross, Smyrna, Lithia Springs and Stockbridge. ARCA previously announced that its fifth retail outlet will be located in Marietta.

Like all ApplianceSmart Factory Outlets, this new location will carry a wide range of special-buy major household appliance brands, including Whirlpool, Maytag, GE, Frigidaire, Jenn-Air, Amana, Bosch and KitchenAid. Special-buy appliances, which ApplianceSmart sells at a significant discount to retail, include new in-the-box closeouts, factory overruns, discontinued models and thousands of discounted out-of-box items.

Edward R. (Jack) Cameron, President and Chief Executive Officer, commented: "Atlanta is a great market for our concept. As we said in our recent announcement about the upcoming new retail outlet in Marietta, we believe there are various strategic locations in the Greater Atlanta market where we can continue to backfill. Our new factory outlet will be in a prime location with dense traffic patterns, wonderful visibility to commuters and shoppers, and a national competitor next door. By adding this outlet, not only will we increase our market penetration, we will also have greater economies of scale in our overall advertising spend and overhead expenses for the Atlanta market."
