appliance shopping - los angeles area

not sure which board i should post on for this so i'll start here...

aside from pacific sales and costco are there any appliance (fridge, stove, dishwasher etc) stores that carry mid to high end appliances who have good service and aggressive prices? any reliable wholesalers any of you have discovered? can be within an hour of wilshire and the 405.

thx!

  1. If you are shopping for Viking or Wolf or Sub-Zero then you are probably going to find what we found, little to no pricing differences as the manufacturer seems to mandate the pricing of their products.

    If you are looking at other less "high end reputation" brands then you should check out Absolute Appliances http://www.absoluteappliances.com/ on N La Brea just south of Melrose.

      I would second this recommendation. We bought a stove there when we moved into a house and they were friendly and helpfull and the prices were good.

        ….Don't laugh but I agree with Sears.

        1. re: wienermobile

          The trouble with Sears is that they are constantly changing their prices. I looked at a range that I wanted to buy. The next week when I was ready to buy it the price had risen by $100 and I went elsewhere. Next times I looked at Sears pricing the price was even higher and then a reduction of over $100.

          1. re: Sam D.

            It's called a market reaction. They are changing prices based on the prices other retailers in the area are charging. Most retailers have a price guarantee, so if the price goes down in a set amount of days you will be refunded the difference, but you must be vigilant.

            I agree as well, we just did a major remodel of our kitchen and our new refrigerator and dishwasher came from Sears. Looked many places, liked theirs the best...

          1. re: Burger Boy

            Agree with Snyder Diamond as well. Our new oven came from there...

          2. I'd second the recs for Snyder and Sears. When we got our place a few years ago, those were the two we used after much pricing and brand research.

            Things may have changed since then but worth a look I think. Bonus to Snyder, they are catty corner from tacos por favor! Good stop after an exhausting time shopping.

            Fwiw, we weren't looking for high end pricy sub zero type appliances but we wanted something a step up from basic that were solid. We got our range from Snyder and the rest from Sears. Been very happy with our fridge and range.

            1. thx all! especially for the quick responses. we're hitting the trail today in search of the goodies...

              will hit pacific sales in Torrance, Snyder diamond, absolute and will check out sears online before I go... will report back. was hoping for some speciality hidden wholesale warehouse but knew it was unlikely.
