how much are appliances marked up?
Hi Garden Web,
So we've run into a situation.
We bought a thermador fridge, but it was 84" high, and impossible to get into our apartment.
The store wants to charge us a 20% restocking fee, and obviously I am not happy with this. I think they are partially to blame, as they should have warned us that the fridge is higher then standard. (Standard fridge height is 80" for Subzero, and much lower for all other brands. The standard door height is 80", so ANY other fridge on the market would have fit)
We bought a full kitchen of mostly miele appliances (fridge, 2ovens, dw, cooktop, hoodfan, cooktop) from them, and my thought is that they are making enough money from the transaction that they can cover the cost of selling the fridge off the floor.
We did get a 15% discount on the overall order.
So I am curious to know, what is the mark up on appliances? Would they really lose money if they waive the restocking fee?
