This President’s Day, hhgregg (NYSE:HGG) – a leading appliance, electronics and furniture retailer – is taking the time to honor America’s First Ladies by encouraging guests to find inspiration in the great causes, campaigns and contributions these women have made in the United States of America. According to an hhgregg-commissioned survey of 1,000 consumers across the U.S., 52 percent of Millennials believe there should be a holiday celebrating America’s First Ladies, and nearly the same percentage (50 percent) have been inspired to take action in their own lives based on a First Lady’s initiative.

“The achievements of our First Ladies often get overlooked. These women have made some great contributions to our country, leading programs around healthy eating, literacy, energy efficiency and more, so we decided it was time to celebrate all they have done,” said Julie Lyle, CMO of hhgregg. “Beginning now through President’s Day weekend, hhgregg will offer incredible deals inspired by these great women, on items such as wearable fitness devices, state-of-the-art tablets, energy-efficient appliances and stylish home furnishings.”

Of 10 well-known First Ladies, ranked among the top four favorites were Jacquelyn Kennedy Onassis at 48 percent, followed by Eleanor Roosevelt (44 percent), Hillary Clinton (37 percent) and Michelle Obama (34 percent), according to the hhgregg survey. A former photographer, the late Mrs. Kennedy undertook a White House restoration campaign that ultimately led to the declaration of the White House as a living museum, creating a true place in history for the home of the first family. Other first ladies, like Hillary Clinton, focused on energy, while Michelle Obama made healthy habits her platform and Laura Bush elevated literacy.
