Appliances: Where do you buy from? (GTA)
We've gone through a few new homes and have historically always bought appliances from Sears - We all know what happened there, unfortunately. Sears didn't always have the most glowing reviews, but the guy we "knew" and bought from was really good, aggressively price-matched stuff, and it was never an issue to buy something months in advance. If the closing date on the new house changed, we'd just call up the guy and move our delivery date, no fuss. Zero issues with getting an appliance sent back if it's damaged or not working properly, instead of pawning us off to the manufacturer. Not sure if other appliance retailers are like this as well?
Anyway, as Black Friday and Boxing day approaches, I was reminded that we're going to need appliances again. Our new place was supposed to close this year, but has since been pushed back into the new year. There is no official closing date anymore as the builder is hiding behind Tarion's provisions for unforeseen circumstances, but someone at the site level has indicated that it "could" be closing in late spring. You can see how this could get messy if the builder arbitrarily moves the closing date around.
I'll keep an eye on sales myself, and will be doing research on any appliances that we might be interested in, but any suggestions on a specific retailer or does anyone "know a guy"? Located around Mississauga but willing to drive around if need be.
