POTSDAM -- America’s Own Rent to Own is open at 29 Market St. offering appliances, furniture and electronics.

Store Manager Matthew St. Pier says they plan to hold a grand opening June 3.

The store employs three people.

St. Pier said the store was remodeled prior to them moving in. “It is pretty nice in here,” he said.

“We will serve all of St. Lawrence County — we have a store in Watertown too — so it all depends on the situation,” he said. “We will go out to Franklin County too.”

The store is owned by Lee Rushlow.

People can rent items on a weekly and monthly basis, or buy at retail prices.

“We have tapestries and paintings that we will see too…everything in the store is for sale,” St. Pier said.

Items for rent or sale include game systems, stoves, refrigerators, washers, dryers, freezers, stereos, surround sound systems, bedroom and living room furniture, computers, air conditioners, tablets and more.

Once open, hours will be 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 9 a.m. until 7 p.m. on Friday and 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. on Saturday.
