I’m happy to welcome Kim Forest as our newest guest blogger. Kim is our ecommerce specialist and wife of sales associate Keith Forest. Kim has exciting news to share about some recent changes to our website.
For many years our website has been a great resource for photos, specs and rebate information on the items we sell at Mrs. G TV and Appliances. We are excited to announce that you can now use our website to find online item pricing!
It’s no easy process adding thousands of prices to a website, especially since many of the manufacturers have announced price increases effective this January. But we have heard your complaints about the lack of pricing and wanted you to know we were listening.
Coming soon, you’ll be able to add items from our website to an online shopping cart and complete your entire purchase online. Of course you won’t lose the excellent customer service we pride ourselves on. A knowledgeable sales staff member will review your order, call to verify that the items in your order fit your needs, and speak with you about setting up your delivery and installation. For now, we can only ship to our local communities in New Jersey, New York and eastern Pennsylvania.
While you will have the option to place an order online, we still encourage you to come in for your appliance purchase, or we’ll be happy to take your order over the phone. Some manufacturers have MAP (minimum advertised price) pricing guidelines that don’t allow us to put our store prices online, meaning that the price on our website isn’t always our best price. Our everyday in-store pricing is often below the MAP pricing. Even worse, some manufacturers don’t allow us to advertise any price at all. For example, you’ll never find a JENN-AIR product with a price on our website unless it’s a floor sample or open box item. The same goes for Wolf, Sub-Zero and GE Monogram.
Plus, there’s nothing like testing the actual appliance out in our live showroom. With over 20,000 square feet full of refrigerators, dishwashers, microwaves, ovens/ranges, washers and dryers, our showroom is your one-stop appliance center. So check out our website. Get an idea of what you want within your price range, and stop in for a “test drive” before you buy it.
