Online Appliance Stores
If you’re thinking of getting an appliance for your home DCI – Custom Appliances, but don’t know where to start, there are many appliance stores online. These sites are usually run by larger regional appliance retailers, such as Famous Tate in Tampa Bay, Albert Lee Appliance in Seattle-Tacoma, Nebraska Furniture Mart in Omaha, or Warner’s Stellian in Minnesota. Online appliance stores include Spencer’s TV & Appliance in Phoenix, Arizona, and Orville’s Home Appliance in Western New York. You can also check out the Best Buy stores, which specialize in smart phones and smart TVs.
Home Depot is another great place to buy appliances. They have thousands of options for appliances, and they ship for free nationwide. You can even get your appliances installed for free if you spend over $99. You can also choose to pay threshold shipping, but you’ll have to pay for installation. Many of these retailers have a 30-day return policy. You can even get a full refund if you don’t like the appliance. While these stores are not the most convenient, they do have good customer service and prices.
The growth in residential construction also helped the appliance industry. According to the North American Retail Dealers Association, the number of housing starts in January 1999 was at a 12-year high, setting a pace for nearly 1.8 million new housing starts in all of 1999. The growth was attributed to the demographics of the consumer base – consumers ages 35 to 64 grew at a 35 percent annual rate, compared to 3.9 percent for the overall retail industry.
