Shopping for appliances – large or small, for the kitchen or the laundry room, etc. – can be a difficult and overwhelming experience. Going to stores and speaking to sales representatives can be enlightening and give you a better experience but can also be expensive. Online shopping can be confusing and vague but can offer good deals.

Appliance outlet stores can, and often do, offer the best of both worlds, boasting in-person customer service and low prices. However, finding appliance outlet stores can be tricky. Very few chains offer outlet store finders online and simply lump them in with regular stores, and “outlet finders” online often contain outdated information. This article will help you find concrete information on outlet stores both near you and online. It contains a list of appliance stores that have outlet locations, with additional information about the kinds of appliances offered, as well as current deals within the stores. For those of you who can’t make it to these locations (or don’t want to), there is also a list of online-only outlet stores, many of which offer free shipping and installation options.

  • List of online-only appliance outlet stores

Appliance Outlet Stores: The Conclusion

Outlet appliance stores are a smart way to shop, especially when making big purchases such as washers, dryers, refrigerators and other big appliances. Oftentimes last year’s model of washer or dryer will be just as effective at half, or less, of the cost. A small color mishap might allow you a perfectly-working fridge for your new home, or to replace that old one making funny noises. Although they’re not incredibly common, we hope there’s an option that suits you on this list. If none of these are to your taste, a quick search for local outlets in your area may bring you pleasant results; many local outlet appliance stores buy from larger suppliers and are able to provide valuable deals while focusing on smaller areas. Good luck with your shopping!
