Get the Best Customer Service When You Shop Local at Foster Appliance ... Because There Really is a Difference

by Waverly Wilde

Shopping for an appliance should be easy, so why is it so hard? There's a lot of factors that come into play when out and about looking for your new refrigerator, cooktop, or other appliance. What size you need, what style will go best, how big your family is, and if you prefer electric or gas – these are just a few things you must keep in mind but don't always know the answer to. It's understandable how that could get pretty tiring.

At Foster Appliance, it's important that you get the excellent service you need from us, so making the best decisions for you and your lifestyle are a piece of cake. We’ve all felt the frustration of stopping at a big box store and never getting the attention needed to understand a product — let alone buy one. It’s not a good way to spend your precious time, and it’s not a good way to shop.

What you need is some good ol’ fashioned local store love, especially when it comes to appliance shopping. If you’re not quite convinced that shopping locally with us is where it’s at, here are a few reasons that’ll change your mind.


1.    Superb Service

Easily one of the best reasons to shop at Foster Appliance is the customer service. It's normal to be greeted as soon as you enter the store by one of our expert sales associates ready to help you out on the floor. Often when you head over to a big box store, it can be hard to flag someone down to get a single question answered and when you call them, it can be even worse. At Foster Appliance, there's no automated answering during open hours – you'll always get a real person to talk to!

Also, at our store, we are incredibly proud of our knowledgeable staff. It’s our goal to make your shopping experience go smooth and easy, so you can go home with the appliance of your dreams without having to worry if you made the right decision or not.

Also, because we are all about giving you an outstanding experience, we even offer financial guidance. If you happen to need a little help with your purchases, we provide special in-store financing to give you a hand. Let us add ease to your life so you can conveniently bring home what you need today and start paying later!


2. Continuous Assistance

When you shop local, the service doesn't just stop after you purchase your new appliance. It continues for as long as you need! From delivery and installation to dryer vent cleaning to service after the sale, we offer multiple services that'll make your life easier even after your new appliance is settled in your home.

If you are looking for a package that will give you peace of mind, we already provide the 1 Year Product Protection Plan with every appliance you purchase. But if you are looking for something more, we also offer 5 Year Protection Plans with 100 percent ROI. And it’s as simple as calling our store for service. No 1-800 numbers, automated phone services, or waiting for a real person to help you. That’s the Foster Appliance difference.

No matter what you need when shopping at your local store, we are here to make your life before and after you get your appliance a breeze.


3.    Think About the Environment

Purchasing from franchises and big chain stores can have some detrimental impacts on our earth’s well-being. For example, big box stores are more likely to ship internationally which adds up in money and chemical waste while local stores are more likely to reuse materials and cut down on packaging as well as transportation waste.

How can you do your part? Helping your environment is as simple as choosing to shop local at hometown stores.


4.    Make the Economy Happy

Shopping locally at Foster Appliance can make your community wealthier. A study found that when you spend $100 at your local store around the corner, $68 stay in the city. Conversely, when you pay $100 at a big box store, only $43 remains. The more you shop local, the richer your community will be!


It may seem easy to pop into a big chain store to make your appliance purchases, but we'd love a chance to prove why you’ll never want to shop anywhere else for your appliance needs. See why there really is a difference at Foster appliance and visit us today to start shopping local — because you deserve it!
