Tiz the season to buy appliances

(company press release)

Black Friday Prices and Better on Appliances for Week after Christmas

Although consumer purchasing increases greatly right after Christmas, some Colorado retailers are hesitating on dropping prices for consumers. Despite this, few people realize that the week after the holiday is the largest shopping period for appliances, and when some of the best values and biggest sales happen in that industry.

“This is the number one time for consumers to buy appliances,” said Chuck Ewing, CEO of Appliance Factory Outlet, a local retailer with 11 locations throughout Colorado, including Denver, the Front Range, Colorado Springs, and Grand Junction.

“Consumers return the luxuries they don’t need and buy the necessities they do need,” said Ewing. In addition, many scrimp and save during the holidays, and once they’ve gotten through Christmas, they’ll take the extra money they have and buy something that they do need, he said.

“It’s an ideal time for them to shop, fix up their kitchen, and buy appliances for the New Year,” he said.

Given the increasing demand for appliances, manufacturers and retailers are in tremendous competition for customers, which creates immense value for the consumers during this time of year.

Appliance Factory Outlet is running a 50 percent-off sale, bring back Black Friday pricing for the week after Christmas. Just like Black Friday, this is the best time for consumers to take advantage of the low prices retailers are offering, and for consumers that are looking to buy but missed out on Black Friday deals.

Free Learn-to-Swim Day on December 18 Open to the Public

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - The Colorado Springs Swim School (CSSS)will once again be offering a Free Learn-to-Swim Day at the Colorado Springs Recreation Center (280 S. Union Blvd. in Memorial Park) on Saturday, December 18 from 12-1pm. In an effort to reduce drowning rates in our community, CSSS holds Free Learn-to-Swim Days periodically to encourage swimming as a year-round activity and not just a summer activity.

The event is open to the public and is limited to 50 students. The free learn-to-swim session is designed to introduce the children to swimming lessons and refine current swimming skills. Registration is required and interested participants should call CSSS at 719-385-5984 to sign up. The class will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis.

CSSS is an official Make a Splash local partner. Make a Splash is the national, child-focused, water safety initiative of the USA Swimming Foundation, headquartered in Colorado Springs. Make a Splash works by educating parents through a national awareness campaign, and by providing opportunities for kids to learn to swim through its growing network of providers.

Currently there are 260 Make a Splash local partner programs in 43 states, and the number continues to grow. Local Partners around the country include a variety of organizations, community centers and privately-owned swim schools. To qualify as a local partner, the organizations must offer a percentage of their lessons for low or no cost, or provide water safety education to their community at no charge.

The initiative also focuses on ethnically diverse areas. Research shows that drowning statistics are far worse in African- American and Hispanic communities where children drown at a rate almost three times higher than Caucasian children in similar age groups.
