4. Lowes, Home Depot and Sears
It is not just Mom-and-Pop stores that carry scratch and dent appliances. Lowes, Home Depot and Sears all carry these slightly less-than-perfect machines. With the big home improvement stores, you could be lucky and find the blemished but functional appliance you are looking for, or you could find that they have nothing when you visit. Sears, on the other hand, has outlet stores dedicated to merchandise that cannot be sold at full price.
The main Sears Outlet store in Massachusetts is located at 1000 Boston Turnpike, Shrewsbury, telephone (508) 845-1800. To help shoppers who are not close to Shrewsbury, Sears has a centralized inventory system, which allows them to inform customers what is available at any of their other locations. Once you have located the item you want you have the option of driving through the Massachusetts countryside to collect it, or Sears will ship it to anywhere in the State.
