Did you pay retail for your appliances?
I have an opportunity to purchase an Electrolux Icon double oven set (Designer Series) that is a never installed display model at an appliance store. I was quoted about 1k off the retail price I'm finding on websites. It seems like a great deal. However, if I were to get them brand new in the box, would I really expect to pay the retail price? I also believe they have discontinued this design, so would one expect to see discounted close out deals on these as well?
I know certain brands, Miele for one, have set prices (I was told they would/could lose their ability to sell the brand if they didn't follow the pricing set by the company ....they may or may not follow that, but they were not dealing when I asked) Is this true for the Icons?
I've seen plenty of sales for appliances in places like Lowes, Sears etc. In this store however, there were no "sales" signs that I saw. They did have an outlet store with open box, discontinued, scratch and dent etc, and were remodeling so they had some deals on display models.
Just trying to judge how good this deal is, and if I should act quickly....
