Columbus, OH — CASTO, one of the country’s leading real estate organizations, recently leased 37,000 square feet of retail space to Colorado-based Appliance Factory. The showroom will be located at CASTO’s Sun Center shopping center on Sawmill Road, and is expected to open in the coming weeks.

Appliance Factory is the nation’s 28th largest independent appliance retailer and carries all major brands including GE, Frigidaire, Whirlpool, Maytag, LG, Samsung, Bosch and Electrolux. In addition to their major appliance brands, Appliance Factory also specializes in luxury and specialty products for custom kitchen designs including Fisher & Paykel, Jenn-Air, Viking, AGA and more.

“We’re opening up in Columbus to fill the void left by hhgregg. We will bring legitimate savings of 30-60% to customers in Ohio, while providing jobs to extremely knowledgeable appliance product experts,” said Appliance Factory’s Owner & CEO, Chuck Ewing.

Earlier this year, hhgregg announced plans to close retail stores including their space at Sun Center. The 37,000 square foot box was highly sought after due to its location and visibility on Sawmill road.

“We’re thrilled to welcome Appliance Factory to Sun Center and the Columbus market. As their first location outside of the state of Colorado, and a 37,000 square foot flagship store at that, we believe that they will be a fantastic addition to an already strong tenant line up at Sun Center,” said Paul Lukeman, Partner at CASTO.
