Aaron's Rental Purchase has opened a second local outlet at 100 Grant St. in Buffalo.
The 11,000-square-foot store, with 8,500-square-feet of showroom space represents a more than $200,000 renovation investment in the former Western New York Off-Track Betting site. The area's first local Aaron's Rental Purchase opened in April at 810 Portage Road in Niagara Falls.
The local franchises are owned and operated by Rant Corp., a partnership which includes the owners of Orville's Home Appliances. The franchisees anticipate opening more of the rent-to-own stores in Erie and Niagara counties in the future.
Aaron Rents Inc., based in Atlanta, has a total of 277 stores in 25 states.
