Rent-A-Center Manager Jason Mays and his five-person sales team are pleased to offer residents of College Station an additional option when it comes to acquiring ownership of high-quality furniture, appliances, electronics and computers.

Rachel D. Stalcup, director of development for the organization, expressed her appreciation for the contribution.

“Corporate partners like Rent-A-Center are vital to achieving Habitat for Humanity’s mission in Bryan/College Station,” said Stalcup. “We are so excited that this new store has chosen to donate to our affiliate so that a local family’s dream of homeownership can come true.”

In conjunction with the grand opening ceremony, the store will also hold a drawing for a 42” TV. To enter, simply visit the store. No purchase is necessary.
