Moving to SA, new to your area and not familiar with all of the stores. Looking for some appliances (refirg) and some flooring --- any suggestions as to where to go appreciated. Hoping for a great memorial day sale either this weekend or next! Thank you!!!

We have most of the standard big box retailers: Sears, Best Buy, Lowes, Home Depot. Many will PM (price match) to online retailers, as well.

Thank you!

Are there any locally owned stores that people like? I wish we were there to see some of the commericals on TV, since we will have the flooring installed I kind of like the stores that have a relationship with some of the installers.

My experience with flooring is limited. About 15 years ago, we purchased commercial flooring (for export) through Atlas Floors. Great people, very helpful.

We recently installed hardwoods (engineered) on our main floor. Looked at big box, small local, and everything in between, including Lumber Liquidators, etc. We finally found what we wanted a a large wholesaler through an independant installer we were referred to. After 6 months of no return phone calls (on a quantity price break), we found that Lowe's would order it for us that the same price, less 15%, with 18 months on their CC.

So, you might find your product at a store, and have someone else install it. 2 of our neighbors ended up doing the same thing we did, buy the product, independent installer.

Of course, you could do this for tiles, laminate, etc., etc., etc.

Oh, and do check Angie's List!

No idea about appliances, we have a new home with no need for those items....BUT we did take all the carpet out of our home and replace that which was carpeted with wood flooring. Can not tell you how GLAD we are that we did this!!!! Allergies, a dog and keeping clean SO much easier now that we have. We used Presidio Flooring and have recommended them to several of our neighbors that were so impressed they too used them and EVERYONE THRILLED with their service, installation and quality of work.

Call John and let him at least give you an estimate....we could not be more thrilled with the results and wear...and ours was almost 3 yrs ago!!!! Family owned and operated...the kind of place that comes and checks on the job both DURING and AFTER the job is completed! (In fact our home is one of the "shots" they use in their advertising!) Hope this helps!

Scratch and dent appliance stores for stainless and other appliances, habitat for humanity on Walzem or Probandt, friend bought a nice stainless fridge with bottom sliding freezer for $500. Habitat also has flooring for cheap. Alot of scratch and dent stores have some nice appliances for reasonable prices and some of the inventory you don't see any damage on.

There is another scratch and dent store on 410 and Bandera near the Jason's Deli...we bought appliances for one of our rentals there...they were AWESOME with delivery, installation and haul away of the old stuff!
