Your First Choice for Scratch and Dent Appliances in Walterboro

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.

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 Walterboro, 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
Service Areas

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.

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

  • Scratch and dent doesn’t mean “damaged.” You could save as much as 50% or more off brand new appliances with minor scrapes or dents.
  • We have a huge selection of scratch and dent appliances for sale, including washing machines, dryers, refrigerators, stoves, and much more.
  • Preferred Appliance Sales and Repair offers customers all major name brands in our industry, including Samsung, LG, Whirlpool, Kenmore, Speed Queen, Maytag, Bosch, Frigidaire, and more.

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 Walterboro

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 Walterboro 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!

Greater Cottageville Chamber of Commerce ready to thrive

Cottageville residents have seen change in their community in the last few years, and now the Greater Cottageville Chamber of Commerce is ready to encourage more improvements.Frank Santorella, a resident of Cottageville, said he is proud of the small town and wants to showcase its beauty, friendly people, and excellent location.“We want to create a chamber of commerce here.

Cottageville residents have seen change in their community in the last few years, and now the Greater Cottageville Chamber of Commerce is ready to encourage more improvements.

Frank Santorella, a resident of Cottageville, said he is proud of the small town and wants to showcase its beauty, friendly people, and excellent location.

“We want to create a chamber of commerce here. We already have a 501-3C non-profit status, Maryann Blake is serving as our attorney, and we are ready to roll,” said Santorella. “We have ‘Friends of the Park’ which is comprised of people who helped develop the park into what it is now.” He says there are also plans at the park to install a memorial with engraved bricks to honor veterans. This will be accomplished by applying for grants and accepting donations.

Santorella, who plans to initiate the chamber, will serve as a temporary director. He says he already has seven merchants who are interested in joining.

“We want to make Cottageville a destination. Red Brick Pizza and Beer Garden is the anchor store for starting the chamber,” said Santorella. “It’s a one-of-a-kind business in the entire region. Once the chamber officially opens, we want to pick a member of the chamber and promote that business each week, and once a month promote everyone. There will be a rotation, and this will be good for everybody.”

He went on to say that the brick-and-mortar stores are the life of Cottageville, not the transient businesses. He feels that transient businesses will not want to invest their funds in the chamber, but the stationary businesses are here to stay.

“I think the people of Cottageville will be positively affected by the chamber and will accept it with open arms. Hopefully, this will bring even more businesses our way. Our only option now is to travel to Summerville or Walterboro to purchase some items. That’s between 15 to 20 miles away. Cottageville has a lot of people in the rural areas, and though our local gas stations try hard to serve the needs of the community, it would be nice to have boutique shops here. We already have a new vape store that has a coffee bar. So we are starting off well,” said Santorella.

He is hoping to have the new chamber up and running by the end of the first quarter of 2022.

“There will be a fee for stores to become part of the chamber,” said Santorella, who gathered ideas and patterned the Cottageville chamber after the City of Walteboro’s. “I received ideas on how to structure the fees. They won’t be impressive because social media provides a lot of free advertising. We will have a website and newsletter for the community. We will be out there,” he added.

Anyone interested in joining the new chamber can write to: Greater Cottageville Chamber of Commerce, P.O. Box 464, Cottageville, SC, 29435. Businesses can also contact Santorella on Facebook at Friends of the Park or call The Vape Stop at 843-701-4262.

Rumors of illicit affair among staff at Colleton County school prompt $67k payout

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - The Colleton County School District, through the Insurance Reserve Fund, paid out $67,500 after rumors of an adulterous illicit affair between two employees allegedly damaged the reputation of one so badly, she lost her job and moved away from the area.

In a 2017 libel and slander lawsuit, a former Forest Hill Elementary School employee claimed that she was embarrassed, humiliated and endured physical suffering due to the actions of the district and its staff.

The lawsuit identifies the employee as an occupational therapist and as close friends with the female assistant principal.

It describes how in 2015 gossip that the two were in a relationship began to spread, something that is pointed out several times in the document as false, by school staff.

The assistant principal, who was married to the district’s high school band teacher, filed for divorce in 2016 citing his “controlling and abusive” behavior.

He is also named as a defendant in the lawsuit, accused of originating the idea of the affair because he “could not fathom the notion that two women could be friends without being lesbians.”

The band teacher is also accused of telling “anyone who would take the time to listen” that his wife had left him for the assistant principal including the district, her elderly parents, and her husband, who later filed for divorce citing adultery.

The Plaintiff claims that the district treated her unfairly, reassigning her to a new school two days before the start of the 2016 academic year and questioning her ability to perform her job due to the false allegations.

The move in the lawsuit is partly blamed for her two months of unpaid medical leave after physical manifestations of stress, including nightmares, headaches, and nausea left her unable to do her job.

Eventually, the Plaintiff became unemployed and moved away from the Charleston and Walterboro communities.

A band teacher of the same name as the defendant is still listed as an employee on the high school’s website, while the two women appear to no longer work for the district.

Live 5 News has reached out to both defendants listed as well as their attorney and have not yet heard back.

Dog hunters could see changes under new county ordinance

New language changes to an existing Colleton County ordinance could mean that hunting dogs could be considered running at large even during an active dog hunt.

Colleton County already has an animal ordinance in place. This existing ordinance says that animals are deemed to be “running at large” if the animal is off of its owners’ property and is not under immediate and direct supervision of the owner, including a restraining device. Traditionally in Colleton County, however, hunting dogs have been exempted from this ordinance, as long as the dog owner was actively looking for the animal.

If the new changes are approved by county council, hunting dogs in an active hunt would no longer be exempt and that hunting dog would be considered an animal that is running at large.

Colleton County Council gave first reading to the proposed new changes on Dec. 7th, 2021.

A second reading was scheduled for Tuesday, Jan. 4th. Then, a public hearing and subsequent third and final reading was scheduled for this topic on Feb. 1st. However, on Monday, Colleton County Council At-Large Member Gene Whetsell said he was going to ask that the issue be tabled until council got more information on the pending changes. As an at-large representative on Colleton County Council, Whetsell represents all Colleton residents, no matter the district lines.

According to Whetsell, he had received “multiple calls” over the New Year’s Eve holiday from upset and concerned hunters, saying their dogs don’t know how to read property lines.

Whetsell also said these dog owners told him they want to be able to continue to search for their hunting dogs. “I need more information on this,” Whetsell said, on Monday. “I know this ordinance wasn’t sponsored by me.”

The scheduled Jan. 4th Colleton County Council meeting came after this newspaper’s print deadline. However, more information on this topic will be available on our social media sites and in future print issues of this newspaper.

Meanwhile, on social media, dog hunters have taken a very loud stance against any changes being made to the existing ordinance. Comments include hunters asking for an in-person public hearing on the issue, and not a virtual one; asking for dog hunters to contact their councilmen on the issue; and discussion on how GPS isn’t always the best means to track and recoup a roaming hunting dog.

Colleton County and the State of South Carolina lost a devoted servant, leader and friend as former S.C. Sen. Peden McLeod, 81 was laid to rest on Tuesday, January 4.

Funeral services were held at Bethel United Methodist Church, and the former senator was interred at Live Oak Cemetery in Walterboro.

McLeod’s long and distinguished resume of service began more than 50 years ago and continued throughout his lifetime.

On July 7, 1962, he married his wife, Mary Waite Hamrick, and served active duty in the U.S. Army from 1962 to 1964, stationed at Fort Holabird, MD, and Fort Bragg, NC.

He attended Wofford College in 1962 where he served as the president of several organizations. He was the Junior Class president and Senior Class president. He went on to the University of South Carolina School of Law in 1967, where he graduated third in his class. While there, he served as Phi Delta Phi President, was a member of the Society of Wig and Robe and was a member of the Editorial Board for the University of South Carolina Law Review.

McLeod passed the bar and went to work at McLeod, Fraser & Cone Law Firm.

In 1988, he founded the Bank of Walterboro, now the Bank of the Lowcountry, and served as its board chairman and chief executive officer.

McLeod was a permanent member of the United States Fourth Judicial Circuit Conference, was a member of the House of Delegates for the South Carolina Bar from 1975 to 1983, and served as a member of the Walterboro City Council from 1970 to 1972.

In his list of other community contributions, McLeod served as commander of Post 93 of the American Legion from 1971 to 1972; as district chairman of the Boy Scouts of America from 1967 to 1971; as a South Carolina Bar Member, House of Delegates, 1975-1983; as a member of the Colleton County Bar Association; as a member of the American Bar Association; Member SC Commission on the Future; as a member of Omar and Coastal Shrine Scottish Rite of Freemasonry; as a member of the Lions Club; as a member of Walterboro Elks Lodge Unity Lodge #55 AFM; and as a Captain in the United States Army Reserves from 1962-1973;.

McLeod also had a distinguished career in the General Assembly. Elected to the House of Representatives in 1972 from Colleton County, he served as assistant majority leader from 1977 to 1979; was chairman of the Joint Appropriations Review Committee from 1978 to 1979; was elected to the Senate in 1979; became chairman of the Senate Medical Affairs Committee; and remained in the Senate until Oct. 1, 1990, when he became code commissioner and director of the Legislative Council, a position he held until Feb. 16, 1998.

In the latter capacity, he was a commissioner of the National Conference of Commissioners on Uniform State Laws and served as a lifetime member, the secretary of the Judicial Council of the State of South Carolina, and a commissioner of the Constitutional Ballot Commission.

He was awarded the Order of the Palmetto, the highest civilian honor which recognizes a lifetime of extraordinary achievement, service and contributions nationally or statewide, by former Governor David Beasley in 1998.

The South Carolina General Assembly passed a resolution in May 2020 to honor McLeod at the request of the Department of Transportation by naming the bridge that crosses the Edisto River along U.S. Highway 17 in Colleton County the “Senator Peden McLeod Bridge.” Dignitaries from across the state of South Carolina were present for the event. The resolution reads, “It would be fitting and proper to further recognize the good works of this son of South Carolina by having a bridge in his beloved Colleton County named in his honor.”

At his dedication ceremony, McLeod graciously accepted the highway sign and framed resolution, and remarked, “I am grateful to the people who elected me and gave me the opportunity to serve them. I always believed that I should always do what was right and never give up,” said McLeod.

“I am very proud of my record of service. I gave a lot of time and effort to Colleton. I could not have done any of this without my family.”
