If you're in need of a new refrigerator, washer/dryer or TV this summer, you're in luck. South Florida retailers are turning up the heat on competition.
Sears has a 15 percent sale on its Kenmore-brand refrigerators, washers and dryers -- plus 10 percent of Whirlpool and KitchenAid appliances, through Saturday, July 16. Sears also is planning a "big price drop" promotion, targeting South Florida stores, through Labor Day weekend, according to an email from Euro RSCG Worldwide PR.
Meanwhile, newcomer hhgregg is holding "grand openings" of its nine South Florida stores at 3 p.m. Thursday, July 14. Hhgregg is opening stores in Fort Lauderdale, Plantation, Pembroke Pines, Boca Raton, Wellington, West Palm Beach, Aventura, Hialeah and Miami.
A visitor to hhgregg's Boca Raton store, at 20841 State Rd. 7, tells me the store is offering special opening prices.
Best Buy has Frigidare refrigerators on sale and offering 15 percent on washer/dryer pairs.
And you always want to check BrandsMart USA, which is currently holding its "Christmas in July" sale on items including appliances.
Remember to shop around, especially before investing hundreds or even thousands of dollars in an appliance. And some competitors will match prices so if you find a model you like at one store, but the price is better at another -- that's worth a try.
