One of those stores is the JCPenney in Silverdale, which will unveil its appliance department Friday, according to a news release.

Each showroom will display more than 100 name brand appliance models , including refrigerators, stoves, dishwashers, washers and dryers. The store will offer no-interest financing, free delivery and a price match guarantee.

Appliance sales are part of a three-year strategy announced by JCPenney’s CEO in August to grow profits. Other strategies include a focus on special clothing sizes, beauty products and jewelry.

The company has already bolstered its e-commerce capabilities with a redesigned mobile app and more shipping options for online orders.
