A top leader in its segment, Rent-A-Center is a rent-to-own company with a head office in Plano, Texas. The organization is dedicated to making its clients' lives much better by offering them the best durable goods like furniture, electronics, appliances, or accessories. All this you can get under great agreements of rental buying based on no durable obligations. Rent-A-Center has around 2,200 stores in America, Puerto Rico, and Mexico. Also, it runs about 1,100 Acceptance Now kiosk places in the US and Puerto Rico. The firm is an owner of Rent-A-Center Franchising International, Inc, a franchiser of around 320 rent-to-own stores. These shops work under such titles as "Rent-A-Center," "ColorTyme," and "RimTyme."

How does the organization reach its aim to enhance the lives of its clients? Besides the high-quality goods, here, it follows three main principles– they have a winning spirit; they act with a servant's heart; they treat others how they want to be treated.

Rent-A-Center began its story in 1960. It all began when the company's founder Ernie Talley (who owned a sales outlet in Wichita), met the people who couldn't afford to buy necessary goods as they didn't have money. It sparked a thought in his head – to rend used goods with a possibility to buy them in the future. Later in 1960, he founded the initial rent-to-own shop named Mr. T's TV Rental in Tulsa, Oklahoma. In 1973 an ex-employee of Mr. T's TV Rental Thomas Devlin with his partner Frank Barton established Rent-A-Center in Wichita, Kansas. For 20 years, the firm grew very quickly and became the top one in the rent-to-own industry.

In Rent-A-Center stores, you rent useful items of such famous trademarks as Sony, Philips, LG, Hitachi, Toshiba, Mitsubishi home electronic equipment, Whirlpool devices, Dell, Toshiba, and Hewlett-Packard gadgets and Ashley, England, Berkline, and Standard movables. Rent-A-Center suggests its good on a small first payment and without durable obligations as part of the strategy. You can give the goods back at any time, for any motive, with no paying the fines. Also, you can rent the same product again and choose the fees where they have left off. The lease fees of the goods also include shipping, options of pick-up, and restore. Rent-A-Center also gives you an opportunity to enhance the products during the rent – their prices will change respectively.

Renting items is not a key aspect of Rent-A-Center. The organization also does charity work supporting charities dedicated to increasing possibilities for young people and families. Rent-A-Centre made donations from 2005 and 2010 and opened 116 Rent-A-Center Rooms in places of Boys and Girls Clubs of America. Each club can choose new movables and electronic equipment for their room valued at $5000. Every year the company gives the $60,000 scholarships to the clients, their children, and colleagues. As a part of the Random Acts of Caring campaign, the company gave items and money to charities situated in communities of Rent-A-Center sales outlets. The team also works as volunteers in the schools of Dallas, where they educate financial literacy.
