Appliance store in Muncie scheduled to close at the end of May
One of Indiana’s oldest appliance stores is going out of business. HH Gregg filed for bankruptcy at the end of March and is closing all 88 stores.
Muncie’s HH Gregg notified its customers at the end of March that it was planning to go out of business.
Quentin Lee, a sales associate, has been working at HH Gregg for eight months. He got word of the store going out of business; he didn’t suspect it at all.
“They said we were going out of business in five days, so it didn’t give us much time to react. It caught us all by surprise.”
The first HH Gregg store was founded in Indianapolis in 1955. Today, HH Gregg has stores in 15 states.
At Best Buy, a pair of Dre Beats was $130 when a pair at HH Gregg was more than $200. Its liquidation sales ranged from 5 to 20 percent.
Though HH Gregg may not compare to Best Buy, some Muncie shoppers will miss this store.
“I was looking forward to shopping here but now they’re gone. It’s a great place to shop for appliances and TVs,” Ryan Cox, an avid HH Gregg shopper said.
HH Gregg in Muncie will close at the end of May.
