J.C. Penney will Stop Selling Appliances
Posted on Tuesday, February 12th, 2019 at 7:00 am
J.C. Penney is getting out of the appliance business. This could be a good time to purchase an appliance to replace one that is getting old or has stopped working. There’s a chance you could get a nice discount on a brand new appliance.
J.C. Penney posted a blog on its company website that has more details. J.C. Penney will discontinue selling major appliances effective February 28, 2019.
In addition, the company will also stop selling furniture in its stores. (The exception being some stores that are located in Puerto Rico). Furniture will continue to be available on the J.C. Penney website. The company will also continue to sell mattresses through its website, and in 450 J.C. Penney stores.
J.C. Penney said that customers can purchase major appliances in stores and online through February 28, 2019, and receive free basic delivery and installation on new model purchases over $299.
All protection plans and manufacturer’s warranty agreements will remain in effect for the applicable warranty period.
It is a good idea to check your budget before you buy something large – like a brand new appliance. Avoid putting it on your credit card if at all possible. You may find the perfect appliance at J.C. Penney, for a good price. But, you won’t end up saving money if you can’t pay it off the total on your credit card before the next bill is due.
Make sure to ask questions about what the warranty offers. How long will it last? What does it cover? Who should you contact if your brand new appliance breaks during the warranty period?
You might be able to contact the store, if it is still open. Or, you may need to talk to the company that manufactured the appliance.
