Tomorrow is Thanksgiving and the dining room table is all set and sparkles with the family heirloom china. Breathing a sigh of relief that most of the dinner side dishes have been prepared in advance and are in the refrigerator waiting to pop in the oven, I sit back and relax thinking about an enjoyable holiday with ten family and friends. Suddenly my moment of peace becomes filled with panic as my husband shouts “Oh, no, the refrigerator isn’t working and the turkey is getting warm and the ice cream has all melted into a puddle.”
We call the appliance repair man only to learn that it will take at least a week to get any replacement parts and with the holiday he can’t come out anyway. Things just seem to be getting worse by the minute, even the champagne is now warm!
A new refrigerator is what we need but where can I find one the day before Thanksgiving? I pick up the phone and call Ron’s Furniture. Sure enough they have a black refrigerator that will fit into our cabinet and they can have it delivered to our house within the hour and haul away our 10 year old unit. A smile was on my face again. When Ron told me the price, I smiled even more because it was well below what I’d imagined we would have to spend.
Within the hour the delivery truck came with our new shiny refrigerator and everyone jumped into action transferring our entire holiday feast into the new unit. Just in time, Ron’s Furniture saved the turkey! If you need a new appliance or other item, shop local. We are so fortunate to have local businesses that we can depend on.
