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.

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.
