Announcing Appliance Factory Outlet’s 25th Anniversary!

Appliance Factory Outlet's 25th Anniversary is here.Ever placed a classified ad with some old junk you were trying to get rid? One man did, and it turned into an almost $50 million company just 25 years later. That company is Appliance Factory Outlet, and today we are announcing our 25th Anniversary. To celebrate, we’re offering special offers and deals all month—this weeks promotion is 50% off everything from stainless steel kitchen packages to premium front load laundry.

 CEO Chuck Ewing turned his venture into a profitable and local business. We’re glad we’ve been able to provide the Front Range with affordable, dependable major home appliances since 1986, while supporting both the Colorado economy and workforce.

 In an environment where Fortune 500 companies normally dominate the market, Appliance Factory Outlet has become the largest independent appliance retailer in Colorado, growing exponentially each year.

 “There’s never a silver bullet or one specific thing that makes an organization successful,” said Ewing. “During the economic downturn, for example, our success stemmed from having quality employees, organization, and superior products which bring great value to the consumer.”

 The company held strong against the economic downturn of 2008 and has plans to expand its store in Colorado Springs, as well as expand into Lakewood, Aurora and Littleton.

 “It has been an astonishing 25 years and we are proud to support the Colorado economy as a local retailer,” said Ewing. “We are proud to offer brand new boxed products and special buys at a guaranteed better price and that we can truly save the consumer hundreds of dollars on quality appliances through our superior sales, delivery and custom installation service.”

A Brief History of Veterans Day

Veterans Day Formation

The significance of November 11 started with the unofficial end of World War I, which happened when the Allied nations and Germany implemented a temporary cessation of war hostilities– also known as an “armistice.”  This armistice went into effect on November 11, 1918, at 11:00am. Seven months later the treaty of Versailles was signed and WWI was officially over. At the time it was the greatest war the world had ever seen, so it is also known as the Great War. Its ending had a deep impact on the citizens of the U.S and abroad, as people thought it would be “the war to end all wars.”

In 1919, Woodrow Wilson was the first president to recognize the new day by proclaiming it Armistice Day. He said that the day was meant for “pride in the heroism of those who died in the country’s service and with gratitude for the victory” of the war. Armistice Day was meant to be honored by closing down business for a two minute period beginning at 11:00am, as well as holding parades and having speeches. 

Armistice Day was recognized by the states as a legal holiday in 1926, and it wasn’t until 12 years later, in 1938, that Congress declared November 11 a legal Federal holiday. 

So how did Armistice Day become Veteran’s Day? After WWII and the Korean War created millions more war veterans, President Eisenhower changed the name of the legal holiday in 1954 to “Veteran’s Day,” in order to honor and recognize new veterans from these wars. 

In 1968, Congress passed the Monday Holiday Law—they moved Federal holidays to the first Monday after the actual date, to give Federal employees a longer weekend in hopes that people would travel and participate in recreational and cultural activities, which would stimulate the economy. 

Many states & veterans service organizations did not agree with this new law, since Armistice Day had significant historical meaning to U.S. citizens. In response to this, President Gerald Ford returned the observance of Veteran’s day to the original November 11 date, beginning in 1978. 

Every year on November 11, national ceremonies for veterans past and present take place to honor their willingness to serve and to sacrifice for the common good. This year, Appliance Factory Outlet is offering Veterans Day specials in honor of our troops. There are Veterans Day events going on all week, so take a look and find a way to honor our vets!
