BrandsMart to open next week in Buford

BUFORD - BrandsMart USA will open the doors to its newest retail facility, located at 2319 Buford Drive in Buford on Aug. 21.

Making use of environmentally conscious elements, the discount consumer appliance, electronics and housewares retailer has constructed a 118,000-square-foot octagonal showroom in Buford that will offer more than 500 brands and almost 50,000 products. The store will open at

10 a.m. Aug. 21, following a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 9:30.

The lower level of the showroom will house thousands of small appliances, housewares, vacuum cleaners and health care aids. A large selection of electronics will be stocked on the main level, including an extensive display of plasma and LCD televisions and the newest LED technology, with the mezzanine showcasing major appliances.

The environmentally friendly technology that will be used includes a daylight harvesting system that reduces the need for electricity during daylight hours, rooftop systems to collect rainwater for irrigation and landscaping specifically chosen for low water usage.

Gwinnett residents might breathe easier inside the showroom as air quality will be maintained by a unique carbon dioxide scrubbing system that continuously changes and refreshes the air. BrandsMart has also committed to using only low emitting materials for adhesives, sealants, paints, coatings and carpets during construction to contribute to better air quality.

BrandsMart's regular store hours will be from 10 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Sundays. Visit www.brandsmartusa.
