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 our clearing of floor displays, discontinued products/vendors, and slow-moving products as well as scratch and dent appliances.

This year, we couldn't find a tent large enough (seriously), so it's in one of our warehouses in Stoughton.

The Tent Sale is Saturday, May 4th from 8 AM to 11 AM and is located at 37 Shuman Avenue, Stoughton, MA. This sale will be the largest in our Tent Sale history.

There will be roughly 800 appliances total for this sale including professional ranges, electric and gas ranges, hoods, refrigerators, wine coolers, grills, and more.

Most have multiple quantities, however, you must be early to buy one.

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 sell off-floor displays of over 1500 appliances every 18 months. It's more often than anyone, but we want the latest products on display, and we don't want to sell you a 10-year-old floor display.

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.
