Our Extreme gratitude

Thank you to everyone who made our Fall 2011 Extreme Warehouse Sale a success.

It's always a mad rush for the pro ranges.

We had thousands through our St. Paul warehouse doors on Saturday and Sunday (we counted nearly 2,500 “shopping groups,” as people make purchases as households, not individuals most the time).

Founder Jim Warner (left) chats with current Warners' Stellian employees.

My grandpa, Jim Warner, the retired founder of Warners’ Stellian even got out on the floor to sell a few appliances again. When I asked him how many he sold, he answered, “I don’t sell, I just hand it off to someone else.”

And then, in his usual style, told us one man pointed at a product and asked, “What’s this thing?” And grandpa answered, “Darned if I know.” He’s hilarious, and we were all really happy to have him out to the sale.

These happy customers asked for their photo post-buying agreement.

But mostly, it’s a fun two days for our company. It’s an Extreme amount of work, but we never get so many happy customers in one place at one time.

How do we do it? See below:

Wow! Quite the deal on this one.

Refrigerators from a few hundred to several thousand dollars -- and everything in between.

Thanks again. We’ll see you next year!

HOW TO: Shop the Warners’ Stellian Warehouse Sale 2011 like a pro

Want more? Sign up for our eClub and never miss a sale

I’m reposting this now-classic blog because hey, why reinvent the wheel? These tips remain relevant for the Warners’ Stellian Extreme Warehouse Sale 2011. Measure twice and cut once, people.

Here are some Extreme Warehouse Sale pros, lined up before the doors open.

What is it with us Midwesterners and our deal-bragging? You know: upon receiving a compliment we gloat about the gasp-worthy low price we got it for, unsolicited. Perhaps it’s because we fancy ourselves pro deal hunters.

But our Extreme Warehouse Sale 2011 this Saturday and Sunday is no Macy’s clearance rack. I’m talkin’ big-ticket items at huge discounts: you need to prepare a bit. The savings are so hot, all sales are final.

Luckily for you, I’ve compiled the secrets of the pros — tips that will prepare any appliance rookie for the big league.

Before the sale

Don’t be a fool; Use this tool.

Measure your space
Don’t learn the hard way: there is no “standard” in appliance sizes. Use a measuring tape on the available space — not the existing appliance — and write down dimensions to bring to the sale.

Also — and this is HUGE — measure the width of the doorways and staircases the appliance will need to travel through. Some door frames can be removed, but it’s often that someone buys a washer only to find it doesn’t fit down her narrow basement staircase.

Know your fuel type
This might seem obvious if you’re buying a cooking appliance like a range or cooktop (is it flat, coiled or does it have grates? Duh.). But you should double-check whether you have a gas or electric hookup when buying a dryer or oven.

Consider your hinges
For example, some refrigerators on sale will be left hinge only. Wouldn’t it be terrible to find a great deal on a fridge only to get it home and not be able to open it? Also know what side you want the hinges on a front-load washer and any type of dryer, in case there’s an option.

Do some research
We’ll have more than 2,000 appliances available at the start of the sale, so have something in mind to avoid frustration. The best tip? Know what you like and don’t like about your existing model. Check out our website for more ideas on what features are important to you.

 

The day of the sale

744336_pick-upBring a hauling vehicle
Usually, we offer free delivery on purchases $499 and above, but this sale is anything but usual. Our warehouse is full of products, so we encourage customers to take their purchases with them the day of the sale. We’ll help you load it up and everything.

If you do choose to have it delivered, it’s $75 and you must take delivery within 14 days.

Know your schedule
We’ll arrange for delivery and any installation for built-in appliances (available for additional charges) at the time of sale. We’ll call you the day before the delivery with an AM/PM estimate and our crew can call you before they arrive if you need to meet them at your house.

Pack a stroller
Our warehouse is a warehouse. It’s clean and safe, but it’s also big and crowded and without a play area. Strollers work well to keep small children nearby when you’re shopping the selection. We have coloring stations and movies once you get to checkout to keep meltdowns at bay.

After the sale

Receive delivery/install time estimate
You’ll receive a call with an three-hour window estimate the night before your scheduled delivery and/or install.

Apply for rebates
You could qualify for even more savings by rebate. Once you receive your product, you can fill in the serial number (the delivery crew can help you locate this) on your rebate forms and submit them promptly, as they expire.

Read your manual
Knowing your new product can help you save time and improve the quality of your cooking and cleaning. Stow it somewhere memorable to refer to for troubleshooting and general operation questions.

Don’t ignore accessories

If you get a dishwasher, buy rinse aid to help dry your dishes. If you buy a smooth-top electric range, you’ll want cooktop cleaner to keep it looking new. Your refrigerator water filter will need to be replaced every six to 12 months. And please, for the sake of your breathing, don’t overstuff your vacuum bags!

Visit my blog
I attack the FAQs plaguing our industry. Hard-hitting issues like, Troubleshoot (almost) any dishwasher problems and HOW TO: change a refrigerator water filter. It’s also an easy way to reach me if you need help. Plus, you’ll be the first to know about the next Extreme Sale!

About Warners' Stellian · Budget-wise · Discount appliances

Did you know we have an appliance outlet in Minneapolis?

We have kitchen and home appliances stores throughout the Twin Cities, but for the last several years we’ve also had an appliance outlet in Minneapolis, right on Nicollet Avenue (2 blocks west of 35W & Diamond Lake Road).

You can still access our same inventory of new household appliances, but the Outlet Center is home to our best discounts for those looking for budget (aka cheap) appliances. It’s not just scratch and dent, but also seasonal merchandise and discontinued models.

Think Warners’ Stellian warehouse sale, all year round.

Next year, we’ll be celebrating our 25th year in the Windom neighborhood at this location. Thanks to everyone who continues to support local, independent businesses like ours!
