Aaron’s, a furniture, electronics, computers and appliances rent-to-own retailer, is building a store on Wilmington’s east end.


The 7,500-square-foot, pre-engineered metal building will be located at 2751 Progress Way on an out-lot west of the Wilmington Walmart parking lot.


Design plans for the Aaron’s store are on file at the Wilmington Building and Zoning Office. The plans show an exterior wall listing the products of furniture, electronics, computers and appliances.


A floor plan has a space designated as a clearance area, as well as spaces for specific merchandise.


The Aaron’s website states the company is involved “in the sales and lease ownership and specialty retailing of residential and office furniture, consumer electronics, home appliances and accessories.”


There are more than 1,800 company-operated and franchised stores in 48 states and Canada, according to Aaron’s website. The company was founded in 1955.


A media contact with the Atlanta-headquartered Aaron’s did not immediately return a Thursday email from the Wilmington News Journal.
