The grand opening of a new BrandsMart U.S.A. will be Saturday, Oct. 21.

The 40,000-square-foot store at 216 Robert C. Daniel Jr. Parkway in the Augusta Exchange shopping center is the first BrandsMart U.S.A. store to open since the retailer was acquired by The Aaron’s Company in April 2022, according to an Oct. 19 news release.

“Over the last four decades, BrandsMart U.S.A. has become one of the leading appliance and consumer electronics retailers in the Southeast, providing customers in Florida and Georgia with access to top brands at unbeatable prices,” said Douglas Lindsay, CEO of The Aaron’s Company, in the release. “We’re excited to showcase BrandsMart’s new brand image and store layout, along with our best-in-class array of thousands of items at exceptional prices from top brands across large and small appliances, consumer electronics, computers, furniture, and home goods.”

BrandsMart U.S.A. has 11 stores in Georgia and Florida. The three Georgia locations are in the Atlanta area and Augusta, while the eight Florida stores are in the Fort Lauderdale and Miami areas.

“We are planning to open additional BrandsMart U.S.A. stores in new and existing markets in the future, and we are excited that our first new BrandsMart store opening is in Augusta. We look forward to becoming a vibrant part of the Augusta community and to delivering exceptional value and service to our customers each day,” said Steve Olsen, President of The Aaron’s Company, in the release.

In the company’s tradition of giving back to the communities it serves, BrandsMart is donating $5,000 to the Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater Augusta during Saturday’s grand opening event. BrandsMart will also deliver $5,000 worth of products to the club in the coming week.
