45 years ago a public home furnishings rent-to-own company got started up in Wichita, Kansas, United States of America and is now headquartered in Plano, Texas, United States.
They work basically in providing products like furniture, electronics, computers and household appliances under rent-to-own agreements.
Now they are working with over 2,972 company-owned stores in the U.S. and have a subsidiary named Color Tyme that is one among America’s first franchiser of independently owned rent-to-own stores.
The net income of the company is reported as $866.62 million as per the 2015 report.
What is its origin?
Ernie Talley got an idea in the 1960s to start such a business when he told one of his customers, Mr. T’s Rental that they own a rented washer and dryer after they had paid in full the rented amount to him.
This idea was grabbed by Thomas Devlin, the former employee of Mr. T’s Rental and he partnered with W. Frank Barton to name a brand Rent-A-Center and start-up with a business like this in Wichita, Kansas in 1973.
Later Mark Speese joined the company as CEO and continued till 2014. Now Mitchell Fadel serves the company as head CEO.
How they work?
They have simple options to provide their services as just one need to choose out the product they want from the kitchen to the living room to the bedroom and they offer you the payments, freedom, and flexibility with no credit and no growing interest ever guaranteed.
If one is thinking of replacing, upgrading and adding a new then Rent-A-Center is the better option than going for a credit card because they have long histories, reliable track record and admirable reputation in this business.
They make you comfortable to pick your loved one item from the store without thinking of any long-term contracts and getting the latest in number ever in just a single pick, also with affordable payment options that fit out better in your life and budget.
They only add up the delivery, set-up and product service with no extra charges giving you full control over the return, upgrade or freezing payment option at any time.
What are their modes of payment?
Customers can make their payment from anywhere by just creating out their accounts with the brand or adding up the app. This provides them the extra help to manage out and track down their payments.
