Default Appliances from Sears in GTA

Hi

I am interested in all the major appliances from Sears. I am looking for any reference (salesperson) at sears in GTA can give good deal on Kenmore or other national brand of appliances. I plan to buy these appliances in this week. An early response will be appreciated.

Please post your experiences regarding price matching at SEARS.

The price on the tag at Sears is not their best price, the sales rep can go to their manager and request a price match from other retailers. I unfortunately can not recommend a sales rep, the rep we had was so aggressive and seemed untrustworthy we actually decided not to buy from Sears. I was very unhappy with him, however I am sure there are good ones. You could get a price on comparable products from Appliance Canada and ask Sears to match or beat it.

Hi there,

We dealt with Rosalinda at the Kennedy Commons store and she was fantastic! We did a price match with another store and she got it approved by her manager. We would definitely recommend her.

had a great experience with ian at the sears appliance store at dundas & 403 in mississauga.

again, pricematch the main brands - should get an average of 22% to 25% off msrp (look up msrp on the mfg canadian websites)

What does Sears need as proof in order to price match competitors? A formal quote? an ad? or can we just go into Sears and say XYZ store is offering us this price?

Hi

We went to three sears stores. For price match either they are looking for advertised price or business card with quote (may be on the back of the card).

Oh, I see. All three stores told you the same thing, eh?

If you provide a business card with pricing, do they call to verify or something? If not, what would prevent someone from making the prices up themselves?

My feeling that upto certain percentage the salesperson will do himself. If the price match is more than that percentage will need to have the approval from the manager / manager. Not sure whether they call the store. I think they already know how low the stores can go and price margins.

All we needed was a business card from a competitor, no written pricing was necessary. Bottom line is the sales rep wants the sale, especially if its 5 appliances or more, and he/she will do what they can to get it. The sales rep was ready to make the sale even before we brought in the card, and I'm guessing if we never brought it in they would not be taking the items back!

Interesting stuff... thanks for the info.

We will have to start doing some more serious shopping and see what retail pricing we're looking at, and then discount about 25% for bargaining
