A national retailer has again picked the south metro area as the site of one of its first Colorado locations.

Conn's, which sells home appliances, furnishings and electronics, has announced it will open a store in Centennial on April 26. The Texas-based retailer also will open a store in Aurora that same day. Between the two locations, the company expects to create 120 jobs by September.

“We're excited to bring the Conn's HomePlus experience to Colorado,” David Trahan, president of the retail division, said in a news release. “We're a fresh alternative for people who are looking for high-quality, affordable products.”

The Centennial store is located at 9555 E. County Line Road, less than a mile from the state's first IKEA, which opened in 2011.

“We are pleased to have a major retailer like Conn's opening in the Centennial Promenade and are happy to welcome Conn's to Colorado and our community,” said Centennial Mayor Cathy Noon.

The Aurora store is at 60 South Abilene St.

The retailer plans a promotion at both stores on opening day: The first 100 people to visit each location will receive a $100 Conn's gift card, according to the news release announcing the openings.

Conn's has more than 75 retail locations in Texas, Arizona, Louisiana, Oklahoma and New Mexico. In addition to the two initial locations in Colorado, the 120-year-old company stated in the release it is considering stores in Arvada, Fort Collins, Colorado Springs and Sheridan.
