Aaron’s has acquired Crusader Rent to Own in a deal covering all 30 of Crusader’s stores in Georgia, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee. All but one will be converted to Aaron’s HomeSmart brand. The remaining store will be merged with an existing franchisee’s Aaron’s store. HomeSmart is a Houston-based subsidiary of Aaron’s operating in the South and Southwest. It is not yet clear what will happen to Henderson’s store. Henderson locations for both companies include Aaron’s located at 419 Prosperity Drive, while Crusader’s is at 120 Raleigh Road.
