I had a blast visiting the new Sears Home & Life store in Overland Park, KS. It’s the same trustworthy Sears that’s been around for over 100 years, but this store is updated and streamlined. The products are carefully curated so that it’s not such an overwhelming experience–when shopping for appliances or mattresses is almost always overwhelming.
I tested out the DreamLab, which uses technology to tell you exactly what kind of mattress will work best for your body and sleep style. The store has a ton of great mattress options, as well as pillows, and the customer service to help you decipher exactly what you need.
The appliance selection is just as great. There are many, many options from a variety of price points. Washing machines, ovens, refrigerators, dish washers and more! I am in the market for a new dishwasher and the sales associate was so helpful in educating me on the materials and sound level of the various models.
Probably my favorite section of the store was all the smart home/connected home products. I ended up purchasing two smart lightbulbs, which I can turn on and off (and change colors!!) all from my smart phone. This section of the store also had Ring doorbells and Nest thermostats–so much cool stuff!
The Grand Opening event was a ton of fun. They went above and beyond with food, music, giveaways and I even got a caricature drawing of myself. A couple of influencer friends also attended, and overall it was a great time!
