Ah, the Yale Tent Sale. Since the passing of the Filene's Basement Bridal Run, the Tent Sale is the last of these types of sales. If you have never been to one of these, it's a 3-hour mad grab. Yet it's totally worth it.

You can save a ton of money on this sale starting at 20% and up to 60% with a full manufacturer's warranty.

The Tent Sale is not about new appliances. It is our clearing of floor displays, discontinued products/vendors, and slow-moving products as well as scratch and dent appliances. There will be over 600 appliances in the sale this year.

The Tent Sale is Saturday, May 5th from 8 AM to 11 AM and is located at our Stoughton Warehouse, 75 Campanelli Pkwy, Stoughton, MA. This sale will be the largest in our Tent Sale history.

Below is a very small example of the new crated appliances in this years. Each item has multiples, but you have to be early to buy one.

Most of you have inquired about Speed Queen. We have 6 sets of washers and dryers at $999 for both. There are 41 of the Whirlpool stainless dishwashers at $199.

The Tent Sale Formula

Every day we will have between 70-150 deliveries with an average of 2.5 appliances per stop. We do free site checks for tight spots, send video detailing actual deliveries, and maintain the most capable delivery crew in the business. 

However, a piece or two per day will not be able to be delivered or won't fit. Multiply that by 300 delivery days, add a year's worth of gently dented products, discontinued vendors, slow-moving products, bad buying decisions, returns, and other assorted stuff, and you have a recipe for a pretty decent sale.

We also don't charge restocking charges for returned yet sale-able pieces (almost every other store will charge 25% or more if they allow returns at all). Instead, we sell them consistently in our outlet and once a year we move them to a tent in our parking lot.

A Couple of FAQs:

What are the brands included?

Sub-Zero, Wolf, Thermador, Frigidaire, Samsung, Whirlpool, LG, Electrolux, Jenn-Air, KitchenAid, BlueStar, and Bosch among others are included in our Tent Sale.

What appliance types will be included?

You will be able to find any appliance from a professional range, built-in refrigerator to laundry, cooking, and dishwashers. If we sell it new, that appliance and brand will probably be in the Tent Sale.

Are the products under warranty?

All items are fully warrantied (we perform the service free for the first year) However, the appliances come as is. There are plenty of new overstock, but some others will have a scratch or dent.

Can the Tent Sale appliances be delivered?

The normal delivery charge of $79 applies. This includes delivery and removal of your old appliance. You must take delivery within 10 business days.

What are the average discounts?

20% for some. There will be some others at 40-60% off depending on the issue.

Will Yale hold the appliances or have a layaway available?

Not for this sale. First come, First served.

Is lighting included?

Not for this event.

When is the best time to arrive for this sale?

This year will be an early 8 am start. So, arrive early. Very early. Most of this will be gone by 11 if not sooner. This is really a 3-hour sale, tops. We don't like wasting your time.

There are some pretty compelling products. I would recommend you generate a list of products you are interested in, come early, and move quickly. Your savings will be considerable. 

Can You Buy Multiple Quantities?

Some items will be one per household. No dealers allowed.

I will respond to comments and update this article Friday if you have further questions.
