Your First Choice for Scratch and Dent Appliances in West Ashley
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 West Ashley, 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 West Ashley
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 West Ashley 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. When you break it down, buying products and appliances that would otherwise go to a landfill is a win-win. You’re getting an incredible discount on a high-quality appliance and you’re diminishing the harmful greenhouse gases that harm our precious environment.

An Atlanta-based restaurant that announced 18 months ago it was coming to West Ashley will welcome its first customers in mid-December.
Poke Burri will open at 11 a.m. Dec. 14 in a 1,400-square-foot space in the former Helping Kids with Cancer Thrift Store at 835 Savannah Highway in Charleston.
The building, redeveloped as The Victory by Charleston-based real estate investment firm Twin Rivers Capital, is divided into four units that extend to the back of the building. Poke Burri is taking up one of the two middle spaces. All four units have entrances from the street.
Poke Burri sells bowls, burritos and specialties such as sushi doughnuts. It operates nine locations.
The diner operates four locations in the Atlanta area and one each in Houston, Raleigh, Tampa, Jacksonville and Philadelphia. Another is planned for Denver, according to the restaurant’s website.
The new Charleston location will be open 11 a.m.-9 p.m. Tuesday-Thursday, 11 a.m.-10 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and 11 a.m.-9 p.m. Sunday. It will be closed on Monday.
Joining The Victory by the spring will be New Orleans-based breakfast restaurant Ruby Sunshine, which opened a downtown location Dec. 8 at 171 East Bay St., where Blossom restaurant operated for 27 years before closing last December.
Also leasing space in the redeveloped site is Sweathouz, an infrared sauna site. An opening date has not been announced. The Atlanta-based business offers another Charleston-area location in Mount Pleasant.
All but one unit has been leased in The Victory.
A New York City-based women’s apparel shop is ready to launch its 12th retail location in Charleston.
LoveShackFancy will open at 10 a.m. Dec. 10 at 218 King St. in the space formerly occupied by clothing store Fresh Produce.
“I adore the southern charm of Charleston and am honored to be bringing LoveShackFancy to King Street,” Rebecca Hessel Cohen, founder and creative director, said.
“We were inspired by the vibrant pastels of the city and incorporated them into our own vintage-inspired world,” she said. “I cannot wait to see our ruffle minis and whimsical florals, flaunt around the cobblestone streets on Charleston girls.”
The shop will be open 10 a.m.-6 p.m. each day except Sunday, when it will close at 5 p.m.
A hair-cutting operation is moving to a new location on the Charleton peninsula.
Lowcountry Barbershop will move to 511 Rutledge Ave. once renovations are completed on the building, according to William Olasov, an agent with Roadstead Real Estate Advisors.
He represented the property owner 511 Rutledge LLC, which is registered to shop owner Cindy Buhle, who bought the building Nov. 3.
The property’s price was not available because the deed has not been recorded at the Charleston County Register of Deeds Office as of Dec. 7. The new two-story site is the former location of Dell’z Uptown restaurant and includes two apartments.
The ground-floor barber shop will occupy just under 1,200 square feet next to Nunan Street.
Buhle now operates the shop at 114 Cannon St., but the property changed hands in September and the new owner is trying to put a restaurant in the building.
Lowcountry Barbershop has operated near the Medical University of South Carolina for the past 12 years.
A tentative opening timeframe for the new location has not been announced.
A Summerville toy shop will host its first Model Train Show this weekend.
Train Town Toy and Hobby will sponsor the event 1-6 p.m. Dec. 10 and 9 a.m.-3 p.m. Dec. 11 in Rollins Edwards Community Center at 301 N. Hickory St.
Admission is $5, with no charge for children under 5.
The nearly 20-year-old business has been operating in Summerville for eight years. Owned by Jim Donlon, the shop can be found at 128 W. Richardson Ave.

Dave Infante, editor of Fingers, an independent newsletter about drinking in AmericaWe basically rotated between Renzo, Edmund’s Oast (restaurant) and Lewis for takeout for the first four months of the year. Once we got vaccinated, we started eating outdoors at those three places, plus Estadio and Berkeley’s.
Jacob Pucci,food and dining reporter for The Fayetteville ObserverThe first meal I ate when I moved to North Carolina was at Fonda Lupita in Sanford. It’s been a frequent stop for me ever since. Those chicharron prensado gorditas will forever hold a place in my heart.
Maggie Ward, events and marketing manager of The Local Palate Nico for baked oysters and bacon clams, 167 Raw for lobster rolls, and Hannibal’s Kitchen for crab rice — 2021 was the year of seafood to-go for me.
Hanna Raskin, editor and publisher of The Food SectionEdmund’s Oast, Edmund’s Oast and Edmund’s Oast. Love that I can count on the same place for swanky cocktails out with friends and boxed-up burgers at home when work’s gone on too long.

Erin Perkins, editor Eater CarolinasI had quite a few bean-and-cheese burritos from Micho (RIP) on James Island. The burritos were perfectly griddled every time and came with a great green sauce and sour cream. Pink Bellies takeout was in regular rotation before Thai Phi opened the dining room. Once we discovered the giant breakfast sandwiches at Bodega at Uptown Social, it was difficult to not order one every Sunday.
Barbara Skidmore, Eater Carolinas contributor, covering SC and SavannahLewis Barbecue (Charleston) with an expansive outdoor eating area as well as the addition of the JL’s Southwest Burger Joint.

CHARLESTON, S.C., Jan. 13, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- The Bank of South Carolina Corporation (Nasdaq: BKSC) announced unaudited earnings of $6,744,866 or $1.22 and $1.19 basic and diluted per share, respectively, for the year ended December 31, 2021 – an increase of $284,235 or 4.40% from earnings for the year ended December 31, 2020 of $6,460,631 or $1.17 and $1.14 basic and diluted per share, respectively. Earnings for the three months ended December 31, 2021 decreased $196,036 or 11.30% to $1,539,170 compared to $1,735,206 for the three months ended December 31, 2020. Returns on average assets and average equity for the year ended December 31, 2021 were 1.14% and 12.30%, respectively, compared with 2020 returns on average assets and average equity of 1.28% and 11.93%, respectively.
Fleetwood S. Hassell, President and Chief Executive Officer, stated, "This year, we will celebrate our 35th anniversary as the oldest bank headquartered in Charleston. Despite lower fourth quarter earnings, 2021 was another successful year as we were able to meet and exceed our profit plan, resulting in the third most profitable year in our history. Fees realized from PPP and mortgage originations greatly helped to offset reduced interest income generated from this exceptionally low interest rate environment. We are prepared to meet the challenges of 2022: razor-thin margins, suitable investments of our resources, diminished fee income, and a tight labor market. Anticipated Federal Reserve rate increases will help to mitigate some of this; however, an expanded mortgage department and increased loan volume will be the keys to driving more revenue for the bank. Nonetheless, our employees remain our greatest asset and, once again, will see us through another successful year of relationship banking with unparalleled service, responsiveness, and attention to detail."
