Appliance Shopping Tips for National Salesperson Day

National Salesperson Day, celebrated on the second Friday in December, honors the salesperson and his or her dedication to their craft. Warners’ Stellian is lucky enough to employ more than 150 knowledgeable sales associates across our 10 retail locations. That’s some serious appliance know- how! Today we celebrate them and everything they do to make purchasing that new dream kitchen or laundry set as pain-free as possible.

Hear from some of our all-stars on tips and tricks they’ve learned over the years that will help you help us in your appliance search.

Buying a Top-Load Washer

Anita Gunderson at our Coon Rapids location recommends the reach-test when buying a new top-load washer.

“Be sure to practice reaching to the bottom of the drum. The newer machines have a much larger capacity, but that comes with a longer reach to the bottom. Think of the people in your family who will be using the machine and give them a ‘reach-test’ at one of our stores.”

Measuring for New Appliances

Just like Santa Claus, make your (measurement) list, and check it twice! Here’s what Shakopee  Appliance Specialist Jerome Strother has to say.

“Dimensions are always key when picking out new or replacing units. Even with direct replacement units, there can be small differences that make all the difference in the world. If you are remodeling or it is a new build, knowing the correct sizing can help us guide you in the direction of the kitchen of your dreams.”

Use our planning guides to measure for household appliances. Or if you prefer, Warners’ Stellian offers an in-home premeasuring service for $75.

Buying a Dryer

South Minneapolis Store Manager Kendre Niles says make sure you verify whether you need a gas or electric dryer. Guessing could cost you time and money. 

A gas dryer uses a standard 110V/120V outlet, whereas an electric dryer uses a larger outlet with three or four prongs.
