HHGregg coming to Ohio Valley Mall

ST. CLAIRSVILLE America’s fastest growing retailer of consumer electronics is now preparing to launch a new operation at Ohio Valley Mall in St. Clairsville.

HHGregg is tentatively scheduled to open its first store in the Ohio Valley later this year in November. It will operate in a 27,051-square-foot space on the eastern side of the mall property, next to CVS Pharmacy. The building – formerly occupied by T.J. Maxx and years ago, Kroger – has been gutted, and crews are presently working in building improvements to accommodate the opening of the new HHGregg store at the site.

Sales associates are extensively trained in product information, and show that they care about their customers’ complete satisfaction. Customers enjoy a low price guarantee: If they discover an item selling for a lower price elsewhere, HHGregg will beat that price by 10 percent.

The company was founded in 1955 in Indianapolis, Ind., and remains headquartered there. For more information about HHGregg, visit online at www.hhgregg.com.
