(NYSE: AAN), a leader in the sales and lease ownership and specialty retailing of furniture, consumer electronics, home appliances and accessories, is partnering again with “The Wendy Williams Show” to award one lucky Wendy Watcher new furniture, electronics and appliances for a home makeover.

Making this home makeover even sweeter is that it will be awarded to a deserving family and wrapped in a big blue bow – a nod to Aaron’s signature color and its giant December holiday promotion, the “Big Blue Bow Event.”

The home makeover contest will accept entries through November 20.  Viewers can upload a 200 word or less description of why their home needs a makeover and a photo of a room in their home at www.wendyshow.com/2016/11/07/aarons-home-makeover.  In a surprise reveal during “The Wendy Williams Show” on December 9, the winner will be awarded furniture, electronics and appliances for a Master Bedroom, Guest Room, Living Room, Dining, Kitchen & Laundry Room.

“We couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate the holidays than with Wendy and her loyal fans,” said Andrea Freeman, Aaron’s Vice President of Marketing. “We want to give Wendy’s viewers the chance to experience Aaron’s amazingly affordable brand-name products as we surprise one special winner to help make their holiday dreams come true.”

As a media mogul and entrepreneur, Williams delights viewers with her distinctive authenticity, entertaining personality, and real advice she offers to her audience. Her empowering messages parallel that of Aaron’s sentiment to help customers “own the life you want.”

Aaron’s partnered with “The Wendy Williams Show” the previous two years for a “Win a Room in June” contest. Karen Veldman, Senior Vice President of Branded Partnerships for Debmar-Mercury, which syndicates and distributes “The Wendy Williams Show,” said the Aaron’s Big Blue Bow Home Makeover “is a perfect and heart-warming opportunity for Wendy Watchers to win a fabulous home makeover that will make their next family reunion unforgettable.”
