Would you rather buy appliances from smaller stores or big box?
Assuming price is almost the same, I'm thinking of Home Depot vs the smaller guys (TA appliance, tasco, etc). Costco is sold out of what I want.
For any after purchase support, do you deal directly with the manufacturer first or the store you bought it from? Sure I'd like to support a small business, but Costco I would choose because I know in a rare case the manufacturer won't help I'll just say f* it, I'll return it.
But between HD and small stores I have no idea. If i need some kind of help after purchase which way would be easier to deal with?
