The Okemos J.C. Penney store is now selling kitchen and laundry appliances as the department store chain expands its foray into the major appliance market.

J.C. Penney has renovated the store's home department to accommodate a 1,500 square foot major appliance showroom featuring refrigerators, ranges, dishwashers, washers and dryers from brand names.

The Meridian Mall store is one of 100 locations nationwide that will receive a major appliance department this year.  The Lansing Mall location will have appliances available on May 12.

J.C. Penney customers can take advantage of no interest financing, free delivery, a price match guarantee and the ability to earn JCPenney Rewards on appliance purchases.  Here's more from the Lansing State Journal.
