Looks like a good store to shop! Too bad they don't ship internationally! frown

Rick's looking to buy something new, but hasn't told us what it is?

I have in the past. I forget what though but it was over $100. They seemed like a good store.

Mark it's a 42" Panasonic LCD TV for my son's birthday, ABT is $100 cheaper than anybody else right now ... this is only the third year I've been telling him I'd get him a TV for his birthday. laugh

Rick, not that they are the end-all, be-all of ratings, but the latest Consumer Reports ratings of appliance retailers (Aug. 2010 issue) had them rated #1. Go figure. confused



(The following was edited to include only the info about Abt)
If you're in the market for new appliances, you probably want to find a store with reasonable prices, good selection, trained help, and a smooth shopping experience. But results of two recent surveys from the Consumer Reports National Research Center show that no one retailer was able to provide all of those things.

We did find some cause for hope. Abt Electronics, in the Chicago area, and independent local stores garnered high praise from shoppers who bought a major appliance in the past year. For small appliances, independents also rated highly, along with Costco, though the standout was Amazon.com, as in past years.

The hunt for low prices

Only Abt Electronics scored better than average on price for major appliances. The almost 25 percent of Abt shoppers who bought via the Internet or by phone got a bonus: free shipping for many products and, if outside the four-state regional delivery area, no sales tax. For small appliances, Amazon.com and Costco got our readers' highest marks for price for the second year in a row.

Service makes a difference

Independent retailers, Abt Electronics, and Pacific Sales in California received top marks for having salespeople knowledgeable in major appliances. The trio also stood out for service rendered.

Selection is important

For major-appliance product quality and selection, Abt Electronics and Pacific Sales scored best.

Troubles completing the sale

For major appliances, no retailer scored worse than average. Abt Electronics and independents fared best.

He'll probably need that HK receiver and VP150 for the TV Rick. You might as well pick up a different reciever while you're buying the TV. (save on shipping) smile
