Default Place to buy scratch and dent appliances?

In 2 weeks I'll be visiting my new house in Cedar Hill for the first time! I very excited, but also faced with the challenge of getting some appliances in there. We need a fridge, laundry washer, and dryer. I'm hoping to find somewhere that sells scratch and dent .. in southern Dallas (we don't mind a bit of a drive, we're touring around anyhow).

Can anyone suggest somewhere in southern dallas that sells scratch and dent large appliances? (bonus points if they sell things like dining room tables and couches as well!)

Thanks for all your help, you guys have been great

you can shop their outlet stores online and check the types of what they have in stock as well as what type of problem the appliance might have--
did it with fridges several months ago--
helpful--some of them had pretty severe dents to sides--some were refurbished--some looked pretty pristine
AND they were not really that cheap -- which surprised me

We had looked into the Sears Outlet as well for a fridge and were very surprised the prices were barely discounted. We ended up buying at Lowe's with a 12 month no interest plan. Personally, I would skip the Sears Outlet and focus on a regular Sears, Lowe's or Home Depot.

I have never found a good deal at Sears outlet stores, but I go every time I need appliances just in case. If you don't need brand new I have had great luck getting almost new on Craigslist for my rental properties. Several of the sellers there do deliveries, too. But you can also rent a truck super cheap for a couple of hours from Home Depot if you find someone privately selling who needs the buyer to do their own transport. I have also found some good deals at Best Buy on the floor models in some stores; and they have been willing to negotiate with me. But they don't advertise discounted floor models on line...they do deliver super fast. Let us know how it all goes at the Cedar Hill house!

If your appliances are going to fit into a recess, the sides don't matter much if they are dented. Unless it is so much that it interferes with the workings of it, but then they wouldn't be selling it.

I've not bought from them personally, but family members have had good luck in the past with the Conns Clearance Center.

Sears Outlet used to be a good deal but that changed about a decade ago. Look for markdowns in the stores - I have not been to the Conn's Clearance Center but my handyman has found a couple of good deals there. He also goes someplace in The Grove for used appliances. I will try to find out the name of that one.
