Energy Rebates from Governor’s Energy Office Running Out

 10 February 2011

 DENVER, CO—The Governor’s Energy Office rebate program for energy efficient purchases is winding down almost a year after its initial launch in April 2010.

 The final push of the program is being supported by local retailers such as Appliance Factory Outlet, which has been helping consumers replace existing appliances with ones that are energy efficient. Less than $50,000 is left of the original $3.4 million in rebates, which was part of a federal economic stimulus fund from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.

The GEO is offering $75 rebates for clothes washers, $50 rebates for dishwashers, and $100 for refrigerators with proof of recycling; without it the rebate is $50. 

These rebates can be combined with others, such as the Denver Water rebate, and Appliance Factory Outlet is helping consumers find them to save as much as possible on Energy Star certified appliances before the funds dry up.

As of February 10, about $38,000 of the funds remained available, and any qualified appliance purchased from April 19, 2010 and later can qualify for the rebate. 

The company held two live radio events last Saturday with KOSI 101.1 FM, KBCO 97.3, and representatives of the GEO featuring give-aways and helping consumers fill out rebate forms.

In order to get the rebate, consumers can go to Appliance Factory Outlet and fill out all the appropriate forms to send them in. For more information on rebates, contact Appliance Factory Outlet’s corporate office at 303-782-5100.

 Appliance Factory Parts, inside Appliance Factory Outlet, is looking for non-profit organizations to collaborate with to donate appliance parts to those in need. The company has committed to donating $2000 of parts to individuals in need who are unable to afford the parts to fix their appliances.

 “We help appliance owners do it themselves,” said CEO Chuck Ewing, quoting the company’s motto. The company prides itself on being a great resource for do-it-yourself consumers and those who don’t want to bother with the cost of having a repairman to fix the appliance, whether they are looking for cosmetic or mechanical parts.

 “We provide quality information to individuals who are working on their appliances themselves,” said Ewing. This means the company not only provides the right part, but they also provide information on how to replace that part.

A broken appliance can not only be a major inconvenience but can even halt daily life for busy families that rely on their appliances to work properly. Appliance Factory Outlet would like to help those who need parts for their appliances, and is looking for non-profit organizations that can put them in touch with those individuals.

Great Values on Appliances Prevail for Consumers Week After Christmas

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 Black Friday Prices and Better on Appliances for Week after Christmas

24 Dec 2010

DENVER, CO– Although consumer purchasing increases greatly right after Christmas, some Colorado retailers are hesitating on dropping prices for consumers. Despite this, few people realize that the week after the holiday is the largest shopping period for appliances, and when some of the best values and biggest sales happen in that industry.

 “This is the number one time for consumers to buy appliances,” said Chuck Ewing, CEO of Appliance Factory Outlet, a local retailer with 11 locations throughout Colorado, including Denver, the Front Range, Colorado Springs, and Grand Junction.

 “Consumers return the luxuries they don’t need and buy the necessities they do need,” said Ewing. In addition, many scrimp and save during the holidays, and once they’ve gotten through Christmas, they’ll take the extra money they have and buy something that they do need, he said.

 “It’s an ideal time for them to shop, fix up their kitchen, and buy appliances for the New Year,” he said.

 Given the increasing demand for appliances, manufacturers and retailers are in tremendous competition for customers, which creates immense value for the consumers during this time of year.

 Appliance Factory Outlet is running a 50 percent-off sale, bring back Black Friday pricing for the week after Christmas. Just like Black Friday, this is the best time for consumers to take advantage of the low prices retailers are offering, and for consumers that are looking to buy but missed out on Black Friday deals.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE 

17 December 2010 

Christmas Eve Delivery Available for Gift of Appliances 

DENVER, CO—It’s Christmas Eve, and there’s a giant French-door refrigerator next to the tree. Appliances are becoming one of the new gift items that are being given this holiday season. Imagine: the wife comes downstairs, and the refrigerator has been unboxed, polished up, and even gift-wrapped with a giant red bow.

 Appliance sales are trending upwards, according to forecasts by IBM and other trend-watching organizations. Appliance Factory Outlet demonstrated record Black Friday sales, and in order to help customers make their present one to remember, are guaranteeing customers Christmas Eve delivery, with special gift-wrapping options.

 “In order for Appliance Factory Outlet to fill the needs of our customers and really add to their Christmas, we are getting all hands on board to deliver appliances for Christmas Eve to make it a special present for the consumers,” said Chuck Ewing, CEO.

The company says they are pulling out all the stops to do Christmas Eve delivery. Appliance Factory Outlet plans to put bows on the appliances, wrap them, and offer special installation packages to provide that special Christmas for their customers in Colorado.

 Christmas Eve delivery is available for customers from all ten Appliance Factory Outlet locations throughout Colorado, including Grand Junction, Colorado Springs, Fort Collins and seven locations in Denver.

 The increase in sales has been a result of the consumer’s desire to update the modern home. Induction cooking has gained recent popularity, as has re-doing the kitchen and other areas of the home. People are spending more time in the kitchen as the central room of the house and also focusing more on the décor of the laundry room.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 IBM, Retailers say Appliance Sales on the Rise for Holiday Gifts

10 December 2010

DENVER, CO—Consumers will be spending more on appliances this holiday season, according to an analytics-based forecast made by technology giant IBM earlier this year. IBM expects a four percent increase in appliance sales for the month of December this year compared to 2009. IBM says that the data is based on 19 years of previous historical analysis using software the company developed to analyze long-term trends.

 Consumers are looking to update the modern household and appliances are becoming a hot fashion trend with new front load laundry machines in designer colors and stainless steel kitchen set, including French-door refrigerators and two-oven ranges. These trends may be pushing the appliance sales increase forecasted by IBM.

“The price of stainless has come down and it’s much more affordable and reasonable,” said Chuck Ewing, CEO of Appliance Factory Outlet.

 Disposable income is on the rise, according to a report by the U.S. Commerce Dept, and discount retailers like Appliance Factory Outlet are able to offer consumers & gift-givers new home styles without compromising affordability.

 Ewing said that the hottest items this holiday season are for the laundry room and the kitchen.

 “The laundry room is becoming the new décor area of the home,” said Ewing. “And French door refrigerators are highly sought after because they offer so much space and high-quality features.”

 Demand was strong for luxury appliances during Black Friday sales and forecasters say this demand will continue through December. Appliance Factory Outlet reported an increase of almost 40 percent over last year’s sales for their Black Friday event. Ewing expects his Christmas sales to follow the same trend.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Economy Shows Signs of Strength with Appliances Sales

 

26 November 2010

 

DENVER, CO—Throughout the month of November, retailers like Appliance Factory Outlet have experienced double-digit increases in appliance sales over last year. Since the beginning of November, appliance manufacturers have been offering huge discounts on appliances to retailers which have allowed the consumer to take advantage of this aggressive appliance pricing for the Black Friday shopping season.

“The day before Thanksgiving, sales were up over 100 percent from last year,” said Chuck Ewing, CEO of Appliance Factory Outlet. “We’ve experienced a steady increase in sales from November 1 all the way to Black Friday.”

Indications are that appliances sales in general are strong, and Appliance Factory Outlet’s trend coincides with forecasts of increases in appliance sales in November for big box stores like Home Depot, Best Buy, and other major appliance retailers.

Appliance Factory Outlet, a company which has 10 locations across Colorado, is expected to hit record sales this year due to this growing trend. In 2008, the company did about $300,000 in sales for Black Friday. They doubled that to $600,000 in 2009 and now in 2010 are expected to hit close to $1 million in sales on Black Friday. This might be an indication that consumers are gaining more confidence in the economy with retailers and are starting to spend money again.

26 November 2010

 

DENVER, CO— Contrary to trend expectations, consumers are spending more money, and more on wants than needs this year for Black Friday. They are spending more on premium appliances like stainless steel kitchen sets, French door refrigerators and color steam laundry machines.

This growing trend in Black Friday appliance sales indicate that consumers are starting to spend their hard-earned cash on more premium items such as LG products, GE Profile and other high-end appliances for Black Friday. This could be because of aggressive pricing on appliances which may never be seen again. This has created a lot of really great deals for the consumer for Black Friday.

In the last two years, steep discounts on appliances have become a growing trend and this year the trend was bigger than ever. In the past, appliances didn’t play a large role in Black Friday sales promotions, but this year’s Black Friday appliance pricing has been heavily advertised.
