At Preferred Appliance Sales and Repair, we understand that money doesn’t grow on trees. That’s why we offer our customers the largest selection of overstock and scratch and dent appliances in South Carolina.

Our store is clean, our shelves are stocked, and our staff is ready and waiting to exceed your expectations.

Scratch and Dent Appliances

Ask yourself this: Why should you pay top-dollar prices for brand new “in the box” appliances when you can have them out of the box with the same warranty for a significant amount less? When you begin to think about buying scratch and dent appliances in Mount Pleasant, it begins to make all the sense in the world.

Don’t let the term “scratch and dent” scare you – all of our appliances are high-quality, name-brand products that are in great condition. You won’t ever have to worry about an inoperable oven or a faulty dryer when you shop at Preferred Appliance Sales and Repair. Our appliances are all unused and shipped to use straight off the assembly line. That’s right – you’re paying bottom-of-the-barrel prices for brand new products that your family and friends will love.

You might be asking yourself, “What’s the catch?” It might sound too good to be true, but there isn’t any catch. Our scratch and dent appliances are sold at deep discounts because a minor cosmetic issue developed somewhere along the line. A few common reasons why appliances are labeled as scratch and dent include:

  • The product’s external packaging was slightly damaged
  • The product has a small scratch that is barely visible
  • The product has a slight dent that is hard to see
  • The product has a tiny “ding” from being moved around in the warehouse

Scratch and Dent Appliances – Are They Right for You?

Here’s the truth: Nobody wants an old, beat-up appliance with huge dents and scratches. Fortunately, we’re not talking about a banged-up dishwasher that barely works. Scratch and dent appliances are just like brand new, except they have a small nick that’s barely noticeable. The question is, are you OK with a small dent if it means you could save 25% off your purchase? What about 50% off? If you were to do a Google search on a name-brand appliance and compare its price to the same item in our showroom, you would see just how cost-effective scratch and dent shopping can be.

The majority of our customers are savvy shoppers who don’t mind tiny imperfections if it means that they will get a great deal. In many cases, these imperfections are paint-based, which are easily fixed with a little elbow grease. If you’re in the market for a fully functional, nearly-new appliance and don’t mind a small blemish, buying scratch and dent appliances is a great choice that won’t break your bank.

Scratch and Dent Quick Facts

How to Get the Most Out of Your Scratch and Dent Appliances

Appliances can be a big investment, even if you’re buying them at significant discounts. Of course, you want to keep your appliances in
good shape, so they continue working properly for years. Once you buy one of our scratch and dent appliances, keep in mind these tips
to keep your new merchandise in great working order:

Clean Inside and Out

All appliances need to be cleaned, even washing machines. As an example, cleaning the coils of your new scratch and dent refrigerator will keep it running efficiently.

Only Use Appliances as They Were Intended

If your kids love to play near your appliances, be sure they aren’t standing or sitting on them. If you’re using a scratch and dent dishwasher or clothes dryer, don’t overload them. If your appliance requires specific products, like a high-efficiency laundry detergent, only use the recommended products.

Change filters

You probably know that clothes drying machines have filters that must be changed. However, other appliances like dishwashers and ice makers can also have filters. Read your appliance’s manual to see if your product has a filter, and if so, how often it needs to be changed.

Overstock Appliances in Mount Pleasant

Much like our scratch and dent merchandise, overstock appliances have become incredibly popular in recent times. While many savvy shoppers already know about the deals associated with overstock items, others hear “overstock appliances” and immediately think something is wrong. Nothing could be further from the truth!

There’s a simple explanation for overstock appliances in South Carolina, and it’s right in the name. Overstock items are products that manufacturers have made too many of or have a surplus of stock that needs to be sold. This is great news for shoppers who can get new, brand-name appliances at a fraction of their original cost.

There are many reasons why a manufacturer might need to sell their merchandise as overstock:

  • A retail store closes its doors, and its appliances and other stock must be liquidated
  • A retail store has an item that doesn’t sell as well as they had hoped
  • The manufacturer or their partners overestimated the amount of stock that they needed

While overstock items are perfectly normal, some customers think they aren’t worth purchasing because of a perceived “expiration date.” The fact is, overstock and surplus appliances are common in every industry because inventory management isn’t an easy job. Sometimes people make errors, but those mistakes can turn into amazing opportunities for high-quality appliances at great prices.

Overstock Appliances Explained

Retailers have to deal with surplus merchandise all the time because older stock must be removed to make room for newer appliances. When a retailer has a surplus of a particular appliance, they will typically reach out to the manufacturer to see if they can return their overstocked appliances. Because these manufacturers charge retailers to restock these surplus items, many retailers choose instead to off-load their stock at a discounted price, and that’s where Preferred Appliance Sales and Repair steps in.

The bottom line? Overstock appliances in Mount Pleasant are common, brand new, and waiting for you to check out at our showroom. We carry all the major appliance brand names, like Whirlpool, LG, Bosch, Maytag, Kenmore, and even Samsung. Unlike our scratch and dent products, you aren’t going to find any minor dings or scratches on our overstock appliances. It sounds too good to be true, but it isn’t – when manufacturers make too much, you’re in luck.

At Preferred Appliance Sales and Repair, we have a vast selection of overstock appliances for you to choose from, including:

  • Microwaves
  • Washers
  • Dryers
  • Refrigerators
  • Stoves
  • TVs
  • Dishwashers
  • Much More!

Mount Pleasant Trader Joe’s beer and wine permit suspended after third underage violation

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - Loyal Trader Joe’s customers will soon be able to buy their “two-buck chuck” again after the Mount Pleasant store had its beer and wine permit suspended.

Sales were “off the table” for the last ten days following a ruling from a South Carolina administrative court.

The suspension began on January 2 stemming from an undercover SLED operation from nearly two years ago.

The agency reported that during a 40 store sting in February 2020, a clerk at the Trader Joe’s store sold a 6-pack of beer to a 19-year-old who was working with them.

That was the store’s third offense in three years.

According to court documents, the first was in November 2017 where the grocery store chain paid a $500 fine. The second, in March 2018, resulted in a $1,000 fine.

The South Carolina Department of Revenue, which issues alcohol and beverage licenses, has a procedure for each consecutive violation in selling alcohol to an underage customer.

In this case, the DOR made a final determination in February 2021 and imposed a 45-day suspension.

But the store challenged that.

Based on the estimates provided by the store manager, 12 to 13% of the store’s sales are alcohol and it is considered to have the highest volume of alcohol sales for the chain in the region

A suspension of 45 days would cost the store an estimated $750,000.

A regional vice president testified this would cause a decline in customer satisfaction and possibly lead to hours cut for employees due to the loss in revenue.

However, the DOR allows for “mitigating factors” to reduce penalties.

These include documented training for employees, internal checks and automated age verification programs (i.e. register system requires manual input of birth date before sale can be completed).

Judge Shirley Robinson, citing these mitigating factors present at Trader Joe’s store 752 and its good standing in the community, ordered the store to pay a $3,000 fine and institute a 10 day suspension instead of the 45 days.

The suspension also could not take place during the holiday season between November 19, 2021 and January 2, 2022.

The store can begin selling beer and wine again on Wednesday, January 12.

If there is a fourth violation within three years, the DOR could fully revoke the store’s permit, according to its penalty guidelines for ABL violations.

Mount Pleasant resident, ex-Boeing manager pleads guilty to PPP loan fraud

A former systems manager at Boeing Co. is pleading guilty to defrauding the government out of more than $122,000 from a federal loan program created to save jobs during the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The U.S. Attorney’s office said Suzanne Weintraub and unidentified associates “both known and unknown” illegally obtained the Payroll Protection Program money through a “defunct” retail bakery.

The scheme started in April 2020, according to prosecutors. The U.S. Small Business Administration approved the forgivable $122,445 loan about two months later to a sole proprietorship called Sunny Bee Cookies LLC, which listed the same address as a home Weintraub owns in the RiverTowne neighborhood off S.C. Highway 41 in Mount Pleasant.

The emergency funding was requested to help meet payroll for six jobs, according to a database of the federal loans. The funds were transferred electronically to an account in South Carolina from an out-of-state bank.

The government said Weintraub included bogus tax and payroll documents in the bakery’s application to the SBA.

She was charged with one count of conspiracy to commit wire fraud. She faces up to five years in prison, three years in a supervised release program and a fine of $250,000.

Weintraub was not formally indicted. Interim U.S. Attorney Corey Ellis charged her in a Jan. 12 court filing known as an information. By then, she already had signed a plea agreement. Her defense attorney did not respond to a request for comment.

Weintraub is required to cooperate with investigators and forfeit any money, property or other assets she received from her role in the conspiracy. Prosecutors are seeking to recoup a minimum of about $37,000 from her.

No hearings have been scheduled in the case.

According to Weintraub’s LinkedIn profile, she started working for Boeing in North Charleston in 2015 as an information technology project manager and became a business systems manager in 2018. The planemaker said in a Jan. 13 statement that she’s no longer employed with the company.

The government appears to be taking a hard stance on crimes involving funds from the national COVID-19 economic relief program known as the CARES Act. The U.S. Attorney’s office announced Thursday that a Blythewood woman was sentenced to two years in prison after she pleaded guilty to obtaining more than $1.2 million in loans by submitting fraudulent documents.

‘Winter weather mix:’ what it means for South Carolina and why the Lowcountry won’t see snow

MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. (WCBD) – Cold Rain, Freezing Rain, Sleet, and Snow. When a winter storm is in the conversation, these terms are always thrown out in the mix. And most of the time, especially in the Lowcountry, we only see heavy amounts of cold rain.

With the potential for a winter storm expected to impact parts of South Carolina, we can clarify the difference between the terms, and why the Lowcountry doesn’t look like it will get any snowfall at all.

Snow is something that the Carolinas are no stranger to however, it seems as if the Lowcountry gets left out of the fun whenever a winter storm impacts the region. The last time the Lowcountry saw snow was actually not too long ago, with the Great Winter Storm of 2018, which was the third-highest recorded snowfall here.

Even though snow and ice are in the forecast for our neighbors in the upstate, and perhaps midlands, it doesn’t look like the snow, ice, or sleet will reach down to the Lowcountry.

Sleet and Freezing Rain

With this winter storm headed to the Carolinas, the midlands have a chance to see sleet/freezing rain. But what is the difference between the two, and what ingredients do we need to see these events? Different parts of the atmosphere have different temperatures, and that accounts for the differences we see between sleet and freezing rain. Sleet occurs when snow falls through the atmosphere and as it passes through a thin layer of warm air it melts. After it melts a bit, it will re-enter a pocket of cold air right before it reaches the surface. From there it refreezes and bounces off the surface like an ice pellet that we call sleet.

Freezing rain follows a journey similar to sleet on its descent through the atmosphere. Beginning as snow in the upper atmosphere, freezing rain reaches a larger warm pocket, melts, and becomes rain. Instead of re-cooling before hitting the surface, the water droplet reaches the cold Earth’s surface and freezes immediately becoming ice.

Forecasting for the coming winter storm, in particular, requires a lengthy process, with many variables.

The United States is currently in a weather pattern called La Niña. A La Niña winter typically means we see warmer, wetter conditions in the Pacific Northwest and warmer, dryer conditions in the Southeast. We have also seen warmer temperature trends within the last couple of weeks, even with this threat of freezing rain and sleet, models are leaning more towards just cold rain this weekend.

Currently, there is an active jet stream plunging south with widespread colder air, meaning the Carolinas are likely going to be affected. Winter storm warnings, watches, and advisories have been issued by the National Weather Service for Midwestern and Southern states. It is likely that additional watches and warnings could be issued while the storm is in its path and becomes more in focus.

There are still some uncertainties in the forecast, including exactly where low-pressure tracks and where the below-freezing air near the ground will set up and for how long. This could lead to changes in the forecast in the days ahead, which is typical for most winter storms. It doesn’t look as if the Lowcountry will be able to join the snow-day fun that our neighbors in the upper part of the state will be having.

We could possibly even see a rumble of thunder or two. Many details are still in the works as we wait for the Higher Resolution Mesoscale Models; however, it looks as if it will be just another cold, windy, and rainy weekend for the Lowcountry.

MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. (WCSC) - The town of Mount Pleasant wants your input on plans for a new multi-use path between Mathis Ferry Road and Long Point Road.

The path is planned for Whipple Road, stretching just over a mile. It’s part of the Mount Pleasant Way project and would run behind the existing sidewalk.

The project team wants to know which alignment of the path you prefer and what features you’d like to see along the trail.

Operations Division Chief James Aton says the goal of the Whipple Road trails is to bring more connectivity between destinations like Lucy Beckham High School, the town’s tennis facility, Seacoast Church, and adjacent neighborhoods that sit Whipple Road.

Through an online survey and an in-person public meeting on Thursday, Aton says you’ll see three different proposed crosswalks for Whipple Road. You can vote on your preferred option.

You’ll also be asked to rank the amenities you would like to see along the 10 to 12-foot path. These include benches, dog stations, historical markers, workout areas, and a community garden.

“This is really a flagship project for the town, Mount Pleasant Way in this segment in particular,” Aton said. “So, we want to make sure that there’s community buy-in and that’s vested moving forward for other segments as we pursue those as funding becomes available.”

He says concrete and asphalt are the two preferred surfaces for the path. He says concrete is cheaper and less impactful, so that’s what they prefer, but they are open to other recommendations.

Aton says a potential 13-acre park could eventually be built to connect to the trail as well. Those plans are still in the early stages.

Aton says the online survey for the new Whipple Trails is already live on their website.

Thursday night from 5 to 7 p.m. there’s a public meeting to view these plans and ask questions in person. It’s happening at the Jones Center on Egypt Road.

If you can’t make it in person, the online survey is open until January 28. Aton says that’s the deadline for the town to submit its application for Greenbelt funding.

He adds that the town hopes new infrastructure grant programs can help fund the project in addition to Greenbelt Funds.

Aton expects this to be an 18-to-24-month project.

Mount Pleasant shipping company says mail now or risk late deliveries for Christmas

MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C.

MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. (WCBD)- The last day to ship through the United States Postal Service for expected delivery by Christmas Day is December 18.

Pak Mail in Mount Pleasant says that there are other ways to mail, but customers have to act fast to ensure delivery by Christmas.

“Just get in as soon as you can. My computer may tell you something gets there in a day or two. But once it leaves our shop and gets in the carrier’s hands you can see an extra one or two day delay,” said Trey Carden, the store’s co-owner.

Carden says that delays have been happening across the country. Some are due to winter weather in the Midwest. Although delays aren’t as severe as they have been according to Carden, he’s seeing the volume of packages rise.

“We aren’t seeing entire terminals being delayed at this point in time,” said Carden. “You know we had our FedEx girl the other day probably pick up 200 packages and normally she’s only picking up 40 to 50.”

Carden says that the busiest shipping day of the year for Pak Mail will be on December 20. Store customers are already seeing lines elsewhere.

“This is the second store I’ve been to because at the last store the line was out the door. I came over here and I’m glad it wasn’t very crowded. It’s getting to be crunch time. Everything is starting to be busy. I think next week it’s going to be lines out the door. Which is great for the business, but tougher for the consumer,” said Joe Good of Mount Pleasant.

Across the parking lot in the the Northcutt Plaza shopping center, clothing store Liam John has seen delays for its products.

“Sometimes places that typically take one day delivery is taking two or two is taking three,” said A.T. Norwood, the general manger of the store. “It becomes frustrating at times because you are paying either extra or the same amount for items to get there at a certain time.”

USPS says that December 23 is the last day to ship Priority Mail Express service, but they say that they cannot guarantee delivery by Christmas Day that late in the week.

“A lot of the postal service options are going to be out of the range for getting them there by Christmas. But we still have plenty of FedEx and UPS options that can make it across the country in time,” said Carden.
