Dorchester Lighting Display




Framingham Lighting Display

We opened the Framingham showroom in 2015 and renovated the Dorchester showroom in 2016. They both look good but are very different. Dorchester has a massive display encompassing all the first floor plus all the kitchens.

Framingham has been incredibly successful with appliances and especially kitchen plumbing. It is one of the fastest growing appliance stores in the country by itself.

However, we had only half the display of Dorchester at about 3,500 square feet. It is clear now we need to show a larger, more compelling selection.

Now, the obvious answer would be to expand it.

However, there will be incredible advances in appliances especially in the Smart and voice-activated technology. You will also see more steam options as well as more finishes like Black Steel and Sunset Bronze. We also want to have a year-round grill display showing the latest in pellet and smoker technology.

All the major brands like Thermador, Wolf, Miele, and Jenn-Air will also have new additions to their current lineups.

So to expand our appliance display, we will not be actively selling lighting in Framingham as of October 10. We will still be selling lighting out of our Dorchester store.

I have mixed feelings. The company name is Yale Appliance and Lighting, but we have exciting plans for that display.

It will be an even more interesting place to shop after the renovations are complete.


A few review sites have placed this at the bottom of their articles. So here is our take: Our mission is to find reliable products for you to buy. Other review sites may say this as well.

However, we don’t love every product. Quite frankly, it costs us way too much money in repair costs to support less reliable brands.

In fact, we sell fewer brands than most appliance stores. Here is why:

We feel it is our responsibility to repair your appliances after you buy them.

We now have 30 service technicians, each averaging 8-10 calls a day Monday through Friday, plus another 110 on Saturday. That's over 30,000 service calls logged in one year.

The labor rates of fixing an appliance do not come close to the true cost in any product’s warranty period.

That is why no major retailer has a service department. It costs too much labor, money and time.

Our Blog is a bit different than most others you will read. We cannot write glowing reviews of unreliable products.

Hopefully, the bloggers and organizations who write such glowing product reviews for every brand consider servicing these products first. Only then they will understand the consequences of their marketing.

My goal has always been simple: I want Yale to be the best retail experience anywhere. I have tried to create a compelling environment for customers and employees alike.
