Appliance Discounters opened its fourth St. Louis location this month off Manchester Road in Ballwin. Located at 15425 Manchester Rd., the store sits in Ballwin Plaza.
Owners Denise Bradley and Tony Slyman are brother and sister. They've been in business for three-and-a-half years in the St. Louis area.
A ribbon cutting was held last week to officially welcome the store to West County.
This new location is in addition to the company's Webster Groves, St. Charles and Arnold locations. Bradley tells Patch this new location is close to their homes and a strategic move.
"We were kind of at every area in St. Louis and we felt like we had to come out here," Bradley explained. "We just wanted to be out here because it's the right geographic area."
The store offers a selection of brand new appliances from leading manufactures and a knowledgeable staff to help customers with any questions.
Bradley said they way they purchase products allows them to offer low prices at their stores.
"We buy factory direct and in large quantities. We have a huge warehouse down in St. Louis City. We stock up on inventory which gives us better buys," Bradley said.
Consumer can also find appliance package deals and "in-box" discounted appliances.
"We carry scratch-and-dent also, so we can compete with the hardware stores," Bradley said, but points out the appliances are still brand new. "They're actually blemished at the factory."
West County store hours are as follows:
- Mon. - Thurs.: 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
- Fri. - Sat.: 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
