Lubbock Local Challenge: Lubbock Appliance
I gave myself a challenge, and I hope you decide to take it on as well. I love Lubbock and I love small, local business. So I am choosing to shop at Lubbock small businesses every opportunity I get. Last week, instead of getting coffee at Starbucks, I went to Tumbleweed + Sage. This past weekend, I went to Lubbock Appliance (4015 34th Street) instead of a big box store, and I'm so grateful that I did.
I've been eating healthier and losing a little weight. I wanted to reward myself with a little grill, but I happen to live in an apartment. The very friendly and laid back employee at Lubbock Appliance directed me to a small, portable propane grill that I can use basically anywhere outside. Its a high-quality Napoleon brand grill as well, so I'm not worried about making the rounds with it either. Sunday night I took it to my Parents-In-Law's place and we had steaks. It worked beautifully. Oh and did I mention the grill was on sale? It was an awesome score.
A lot of big box places lack employees that have expertise in what your looking for, if you can even find an available employee at all. My Lubbock Appliance guy knew exactly what he was talking about and he greeted me at the door. Sure, you can research online, but there's so much noise that it can be a time consuming process. And ordering online means waiting, possible damage in shipping, and sometimes you even end up with a used, broken product that the online seller is attempting to unload on you.
The other benefit of a local appliance store is getting to see and touch your item before buying it. If you are making a large purchase like a refrigerator, you want to know it'll look great in your kitchen before you invest that much money.
Whether you're looking for something big and boujie, or something affordable that fits your budget, I recommend Lubbock Appliance, you'll love the service you'll receive.
