Rent-A-Center - Service with the customer at heart
The rent-to-own concept began in Wichita, KS in the 1960s, when Ernie Talley realized how many hardworking customers were turned down for credit or simply didn't have cash to purchase home goods. He then conceived the idea to rent used merchandise with a purchase option, and later opened Mr. T's TV's Rental, his first rent-to-own store in Tulsa, OK. With the same concept in mind, Rent-A-Center was founded in 1986 and has since grown to more than 4,285 stores across all 50 US states, Puerto Rico and Canada. Rent-A-Center currently employs over 20,000 people and reports annual revenues of over $3 billion.
