It’s never nice to see a locally owned dealer shut down, but a good sale is a good sale.
My hubby & I were upset when the only appliance store in neighborhood shut down. It meant we had to drive to the mall to buy appliances. Worse, it meant we had to order replacement parts online. This arena consistently had the replacement parts for ancient oil furnaces, air conditioners, refrigerators, & ranges. In fact, that is a single of the reasons why we had the same oil furnace for 18 years. When we finally had to buy a new heating appliance, we made the purchase from the same local dealer that was shutting down. The Appliance Store vehicle liquidation event over the weekend so my hubby & I decided to see if there was anything that we could use. Every one of us were pleasantly surprised when we found an media air cleaner & a absolutely nice space heater. Every one of us obtained the media air cleaner for our son. He has absolutely bad allergies & he has been complaining a lot about the dorm room in his university. The small media air cleaner looks like it will fit nicely near the window. Every one of us purchased the space oil furnace for our house, but periodically it is drafty in the residing room, because the front door needs new weatherstripping. My hubby & I obtained the space oil furnace & the media air cleaner for the same price that we would have paid for a single of the items. I’m upset that the owner has to close down after 40 years of business, but I was glad to take luck of a good sale.
