Why Should I Buy Local?
We will be starting our renovation in the next few weeks and have been shopping around for a new cooktop, wall oven and dishwasher. We've decided on all Bosch appliances (500 series 36" cooktop, 500 series 30" single wall oven and 800 series dishwasher). I was really hoping to buy local but am finding that doing so will add $800 plus state sales tax to the cost of the appliances I've listed over what I can find online at places like Goedekers & AJ Madison. If the local places could at least match the online prices, I'd probably pay the sales tax in order to buy local but so far have not been having much luck in getting anyone to budge. They all give me the 'we service what we sell' line but I'm not sure I see the advantage. If there is a problem with anything, Bosch will be on the hook for servicing them under warranty. I live in Columbus, OH so there are plenty of companies that service Bosch. Am I missing anything here?
