Your First Choice for Scratch and Dent Appliances in Summerville
In a day and age where big box stores sell overpriced appliances to hardworking men and women, droves of Americans are flocking to scratch and dent retailers. 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.
Finding a reputable, clean discount appliance store can be challenging. Unfortunately, companies in our industry get a bad rap. Sometimes, they earn it with dingy, poorly-lit stores, empty shelves, and mediocre customer service. At Preferred Appliance Sales and Repair, we are proud to give our customers the “big box” structure of major chains mixed with personable service and affordable pricing of a discount appliance business. Our store is clean, our shelves are stocked, and our staff is ready and waiting to exceed your expectations.
The surge in popularity of scratch and dent appliances might be new, but we are far from a “fly by night” appliance store. As a locally owned and operated appliance store, we have worked very hard to build trust with our customers. We have years of experience selling quality scratch and dent appliances in South Carolina, from washers and dryers to outdoor grills and everything in between. Whether you know the exact brand and appliance you’re looking for or need the assistance of a friendly sales associate, we are here to make your shopping experience seamless and enjoyable!
Customers love Preferred Appliance Sales and Repair because:
When you visit our showroom, you will see a large selection of the following products:
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 Summerville, 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:
Unlike some of our competitors, our skilled technicians perform rigorous multi-point examinations on all our appliances. That way, you can rest easy knowing that your out-of-the-box appliance is ready for regular use as soon as it arrives at your home. With a one-year warranty on most scratch and dent items, our customers leave our showroom with a smile on their face knowing their purchase is protected.
And that, in a nutshell, is the Preferred Appliance Sales and Repairs difference: quality appliances, helpful customer service, and real warranties that you can feel good about.
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:
Overstock Appliances in Summerville
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:
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 Summerville 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:
Buy Scratch And Dent Appliances, Help Save The Environment
Buying overstock or scratch and dent appliances in South Carolina is not just a way to get a great deal on a name-brand product – it’s also a great way to help protect our environment. As you might have guessed, unused scratch and dent merchandise usually end up in a landfill to sit and rot. When these appliances are brought to landfills, they release toxic greenhouse gases and harmful substances as their chemical and metal composition deteriorate.
When you buy a scratch and dent appliance from Preferred Appliance Sales and Repair, know that you are doing your part to help protect our environment.

SUMMERVILLE, S.C. (WCIV) — A 10-year-old Summerville hero! Aussie Talbott- who saved her entire family from a fire- is now receiving national recognition.
Brave and courageous are a just a few of the words that come to mind when describing Aussie Talbott.
Aussie is a Summerville girl who says she could have never imagined her life would change so quickly.
“It is one of those things that you see happening, you see it on the news or something, but you never think it would happen to you. It was terrible. I am just so thankful everyone was so kind and helpful," says Aussie.
Back in April, Aussie woke up at 4 a.m. to the sight of flames in her home. That’s when she sprinted into action. She woke her entire family up and got them to safety in time.
“In times like that it is okay to be scared, but you still have to be brave, and you have to be prepared for it," says Aussie.
Now Aussie is being featured in the January edition of Highlights Magazine, as an inspiration for how others can be strong, especially in the worst of situations.
“Some people do not have the courage for some things, but I feel like when there is a time like that, because I did not really have much courage, but during a time like that, all of my body gave me courage and bravery, it made me feel like I had to do something,” says Aussie.
Aussie tells us since the fire, life has only gotten better. She and her family have a new home and are back on their feet. Her family says they could not have done it without the help of Flowertown Elementary, Ashley Ridge High School, And Summerville Fire And Rescue.
“Everything has a silver lining, so it will come to you, with us, our silver lining is that we got everything, we are back on our feet now. there is always a silver lining to everything, so I am sure that it will come eventually,” says Aussie.
Aussie has also been recognized by the town of Summerville and the South Carolina State Senate.
Some Summerville residents push back against townhome development plans

SUMMERVILLE — More development plans are in the works for the front of a neighborhood off U.S. Highway 78, and some residents are determined to see it stopped.
“This is not a win-win situation,” said Tom Clark, a South Pointe resident.
Developers with Dan Ryan Builders and South Pointe Ventures are petitioning the town to annex a plot of land from Dorchester County and zone it multifamily residential. The goal is to build townhomes on the nearly 16 acres of land.
Ron Bullman, representative with Dan Ryan Builders, said the townhomes fit into the town’s comprehensive plan. And if town officials see any mistakes in their plans, Bullman said they would be happy to address them.
This is after a similar attempt was made last year to build a 228-unit apartment complex in the same area. That petition was withdrawn following pushback and concerns from residents.
During a Dec. 20 town Planning Commission meeting, some of the same residents gathered to push back against the townhome proposal.
The issues include concerns around increased flooding and altering the feel of their community. The biggest concern is increased traffic.
The neighborhood has only one entrance, off U.S. 78. That intersection is a mile away from the Berlin G. Myers Parkway. Traffic is routinely backed up to the neighborhood.
“We can’t get out,” said Susan Richerson, who has lived in the community for more than 20 years. She and her neighbors have dealt with ongoing issues with flooding where water has risen to several feet. They would prefer that be addressed before more homes are built in the area.
Other issues mentioned included environmental risks due to the wetlands around the property and potentially adding to overcrowded high schools. DD2 officials have pointed to overcrowding in middle and high schools as the main factor preventing them from social distancing in schools.
Dorchester School District 2 teacher Christi Pitchford said she has seen firsthand how crowded some of the schools can get. “These people are going to bring kids,” Pitchford said in reference to the potential townhomes’ residents.
Bullman suggested residents look to the town to address the flooding concerns.
Developers said the plan is to have 30 percent of the land remain wooded to protect the wetlands. They are also open to additional zoning restrictions that would make sure that no apartments are built in the area.
The Planning Commission voted unanimously against approving the annexation. Members said there was nothing legally wrong with the developer’s proposal but said the vote came down to the area not being ready for the additional traffic that would come with the project. U.S. 78 is expected to be widened in the area, but that portion of the road project is years away.
A turning lane at the U.S. 78 and South Pointe Boulevard intersection is also in the works and funded by the developer.
Kevin Carroll, one of the commission members, said he can only imagine what additional townhomes would do to situations where people need fast emergency services.
“That’s a real scary moment,” he said.
In the last year, the town of Summerville has been pushing for more commercial and industrial spaces in the community. Those areas bring more money into the town and help fund resources. More residential spaces mean more areas to extend town services.
During the Planning Commission meeting, town staff members informed the commission that Summerville has long passed the tipping point of being overcrowded with residential spaces.
Bullman said they were open to hearing questions or concerns, and believe the townhomes will be a good fit with the zoning.
The commission’s vote is only a recommendation. Town Council will make the final decision on the annexation. Council meetings take place the second Thursday of each month.
Summerville woman looking for answers after Walmart gift card scam

SUMMERVILLE, S.C. (WCBD) – A Lowcountry woman is looking for answers after she said a Walmart gift card she received, ended up being a scam.
Alicia Windham is a mother of three, who lives in Summerville. She said her father gave her a $100 Walmart gift card for Christmas. Windham said the card was purchased at the Walmart located on Saint James Avenue in Goose Creek on December 8th.
Windham told News 2, she tried to use the gift card the day after Christmas, but to her surprise, she said it had no money on it.
“I got a bunch of stuff because there was supposed to be $100 on the gift card,” said Windham. “Thank God I had some other money on me because the lady slid the card twice and she said ‘Ma’am, this has zero balance.’”
After that, Windham said she went to Customer Service, where they told her the gift card was already been used multiple times in other states. They printed her a receipt with the card’s purchase history.
Windham reached out to Walmart to see what could be done to get the money back.
Windham shared Walmart’s response with News 2. The email from the retailer read:
“We have reviewed your inquiry. Unfortunately, we have determined that your case does not fall under the terms and conditions of a compromised gift card. We are unable to refund or replace this card.”
The email continued, “Walmart is not liable for lost, stolen or compromised funds.”
Bailey Parker with the South Carolina Department of Consumer Affairs said this is one way scammers target gift cards.
“They will actually take the cards and they’ll copy the numbers off the back. They’ll even copy the pin,” Parker explained.
She said after that, the scammers will attempt to use the card repeatedly until it goes through, which is when it has been purchased.
When purchasing a gift card, Parker said there are a few ways consumers can avoid being scammed.
She said to make sure the gift card hasn’t been tampered with. Another tip is to buy gift cards that are behind the counter, if available.
Parker said it’s best to use gift cards sooner, rather than later. She said if they are being purchased as gifts, they should be bought last minute. The last tip is to register the gift card if the option is there.
News 2 reached out to Walmart. While they didn’t provide a statement, they said they would contact Windham.
“Small Town Christmas” films in Summerville

Summerville recently attracted national attention as film crews for the first-ever season of UPtv’s “Small Town Christmas” stopped by on their tour of small towns throughout the nation.
Summerville was one of four towns that the crew explored, along with Branson, Mo., Bethlehem, Pa., and Natchitoches, La. Megan Alexander, who is the executive producer and host of the show, said the towns were selected from a list of places she was interested in visiting.
“We needed to find four small towns that kicked things off early in November to get things on air for TV,” Alexander said. “I made a list of small towns that I would love to try to visit and ultimately came down a lot to logistics and scheduling.”
Alexander, who is a mom to three children, said the idea was born from her family’s love of traveling during the holiday season as a way to experience what Christmas is like in different places. When COVID-19 hit, Alexander’s itch to start up the show and travel only continued to grow. This year, she set off to each selected small town to finally film and experience the holidays.
“I thought this would be a boost to local tourism and small businesses,” Alexander said. “The big cities tend to get all of the attention, but I thought, ‘Let’s bring the cameras to them, let’s show them what’s happening in our small towns.’ There’s so many wonderful people, and I knew there would be such an appetite for it.”
Christmas in Summerville
Alexander was joined by a crew of seven other team members, including Kevin McIntyre, who is the director of photography, Kassidy Sell, who is the field producer, and Matt Disbrow, Benji Robinson, Sean Conlon and Nick Smiga, who are members of the film crew.
Tina Zimmerman, who is tourism director for Summerville, said there was a group effort throughout town to help showcase Summerville while the film crew visited.
“Everyone in the town pulled together to make it happen,” Zimmerman said.
During her time in town, Alexander said she visited with local merchants and community members. She filmed segments of the show during the Old Time Summerville Christmas Celebration and the Summerville Christmas Parade.
From staying at the Linwood Inn, located off Palmetto Street, to sipping a peppermint mocha from Cuppa Manna downtown, Alexander said that she feels as though she got the full Summerville experience.
“I felt like I got to experience Southern hospitality by staying there,” Alexander said. “We got to experience the live windows displays and Christmas trees on Mistletoe Lane.”
This year, Zimmerman said, the town’s participation in local events, including the live window displays during the Old Time Summerville Christmas Celebration, was at an all-time high.
“It was a lot of work for them to do the live windows, especially this year with a shortage of staff and what they’ve been through,” Zimmerman said. “But we had record participation and adorable creative windows.”
Zimmerman thinks the publicity Summerville will get from being featured on the show will bring more tourists to the area.
“If we did the same thing we did this year next year, everyone will be glad they visited,” Zimmerman said.
The Summerville episode of the show will have its world broadcast premiere on Christmas Eve at 9 p.m. The show will be aired on UPtv on channel 124.
“I just felt like it was such a blessing and a privilege to tell those stories, to showcase these small towns and the faces behind these small towns,” Alexander said.

This story has been updated to reflect new information from Pogan's Hospitality.
A longstanding Charleston restaurant company is expanding to the Upstate.
Poogan’s Southern Kitchen is coming to BridgeWay Station in Mauldin, according to a press release from Hughes Investments Inc., the company that closed the deal.
The brand is a newer concept for Poogan's Hospitality, the restaurant group behind iconic Poogan’s Porch, the popular restaurant that opened in a 19th century home on Queen Street in downtown Charleston in 1976. It brings elements of the classic restaurant's menu but with an updated, and more approachable, touch.
Brad Ball, president of Poogan's Hospitality called the Upstate location "a natural progression" for the restaurant company, expressing admiration for the Hughes Investments team.
"What they are building, it’s really next level," Ball said, speaking by phone Thursday morning. "We're just excited to be part of a project like this."
Poogan's Hospitality developed the more moderately priced Poogan's Southern Kitchen (PSK) concept in 2018, and opened the first location in Summerville in 2020. Another location in Columbia is currently under construction.
Future plans call for new PSK locations both in South Carolina and outside the state, Ball said.
"We saw a hole," Ball said. "You have Cracker Barrel on one side, and then maybe a Poogan’s Porch or a Magnolia on the other side, and there wasn’t a lot in the middle."
Poogan’s Southern Kitchen will serve brunch and dinner with Poogan’s memorable quality stamped on every dish that leaves the kitchen. Expect classic Southern dishes like biscuits, buttermilk fried chicken and shrimp and grits in a comfortable, modern setting.
The new restaurant will occupy a 6,000-square-foot space that includes private indoor dining, bar seating, and a 500-square-foot (pet-friendly) outdoor dining area.
“We are extremely pleased to join with the remarkable leadership at Poogan’s Southern Kitchen to bring this distinguished group from Charleston to the Upstate,” Phil Hughes, President and Founder of Hughes Investments, Inc., said in a statement. “Their outstanding, long-term history combined with the quality and excitement they will bring to BridgeWay further expands our goal of providing the region with the highest quality and most fun places to eat, live, work and shop - and just have fun!"
The BridgeWay Station location will be the third Poogan’s Southern Kitchen in the Poogan’s Hospitality Group portfolio. The original Poogan’s Southern Kitchen concept was launched in Summerville, South Carolina, in fall of 2020. The second location, in Forest Acres, South Carolina, is expected to open in late spring of 2022. Poogan’s Hospitality Group also operates Poogan’s Porch (since 1976), Poogan’s Smokehouse (since 2015) and Poogan’s Courtyard (since 2019) in downtown Charleston.
BridgeWay Station is a multi-phase, mixed-use development actively under construction in Mauldin, SC. BridgeWay Station is located at the exit of Bridges Road off of I-385. Poogan’s Southern Kitchen joins Cohesive Coffee, Belladina’s Italian Market, and Dodge® Bearings and Power Transmission as other announced tenants coming to BridgeWay Station.
