My Thoughts

I talk to a lot of business owners in my line a work – and the one type of business that always stumps me is when appliance retailers have a “Big Sale” – because as I see it, you never are in the market for a new appliance until yours unexpectedly dies. And then of course you need that new fridge now. Well last month the washing machine at my rental decided it was not going to spin or drain. My landlord lives in Texas so he asked if I could look into options. I called the good people over at Appliance Depot on Marine drive and found out some VERY GOOD information. Not only will they pick up the old machine (and keep it out of the landfill) for FREE thru May 5, they have an incredible selection of reconditioned washers, dryers, fridges and ranges and VERY REASONABLE prices. You can even shop their inventory on line from home via their website / online showroom.

So the next time your home appliance dies (at the worst possible time) and you’re not in a position to cough up the big bucks for a new unit – call the folks at Appliance Depot and do your wallet and the environment a favor. Be sure let them know you heard about it in the ECHO.

My brother lives in Kauai and I heard that they had 28 inches of rain in 24 hours – that’s almost unimaginable and certainly got me to thinking that we don’t have anything to complain about here in Bellingham. I’m going to go out on a limb here… and predict sunshine for the next 10 days. I know you can’t believe everything you hear, and there are no guarantees – but I was listening to a Canadian radio station yesterday and that was their prediction – so I’m going with it.

PS If you pull out the lawn mower and find its not wanting to start – get over to Hardware Sales new Garden & Lawn Equipment center and have them tune it up. Because everything is easier when you have the proper tools.
