Scratch and Dent Appliances, Ohio in 2024

Discount scratch and dent appliances in Ohio are quite easy to find in a state as large as the Buckeye State.

You will certainly find some in the capital, Columbus, but also in Euclid, Middleburg Heights, Cleveland, Vermilion, Lorain, Proctorville and others. Ohio is a generally prosperous state (7th in the nation in terms of GDP), but 13% of its 11.5 million people live below the poverty line.

Thus, there is quite an incentive for these folks to shop in places that provide good quality appliances for a cheap price.

This means that most appliance stores which carry high-end appliances to fit out luxury kitchens will also carry discounted items including used or refurbished items and scratch and dent appliances.

Many thrifty Ohioans will happily overlook the odd scratch, ding, scrape or dent if that puts the fridge or range or microwave they want within their budget.
