Sight & Sound, a retailer of electronics, appliances and
furniture, was acquired by Aaron Rents last August and operates
25 stores in Oklahoma and Kansas.
R. Charles Loudermilk, Sr.
"We are very pleased to bring on board an individual with the
retailing experience that Kevin possesses. His retailing
knowledge will greatly assist in improving the performance of
the Sight & Sound stores. The Sight & Sound acquisition has been
an experiment for us to see if we can successfully offer our
Aaron's Sales & Lease Ownership transaction in a traditional
retail store. Although retail sales to date have been
disappointing, we are encouraged by the increasing number of
customers that are taking the lease option."
