It’s been a bit since we talked about the H.H. Gregg brand on these pages, but the consumer electronics and home appliance retailer has officially opened the doors to its first brick-and-mortar store under its new ownership.
As we covered back in late 2017, H.H. Gregg was acquired by New Jersey-based holding company Valor Group, LLC. The firm, which outbid the likes of Sears and Best Buy to secure the rights to H.H. Gregg’s ecommerce website, customer files, and trademarks—all of which were put up at an auction after the retailer filed for bankruptcy. Within months, Valor had the H.H. Gregg website back up and running. And, in interviews with Valor executives, we learned that the company did have plans to reopen physical locations eventually.
The first location to be opened under the Valor banner is located at the Cedar Grove Shopping Center in Somerset, New Jersey. The official store opening happened on September 5, right after the Labor Day holiday weekend.
