A good place to start would be
Sears If you want high end brands with all the kitchen set-up displays Ifound Pacific Appliances to be a good place. Otherwise, all the others Frys, Best Buy, Costco has a very limited line. If you wait for a good weekend of sale, you can really save large amounts.

In my recent exploration I found Pacific and Sears to be very compettive, Pacific had some high end brands.

Good luck!

Always check online to compare pricing. If you have to, try and get your retailer to price match the lowest price you find!

We have an investor client who buys from Amazon!! Yes, you heard it right. He prefers Amazon. We also like University Electric folks in Santa Clara where their reps are not on commission which makes the experience less taxing.

Good luck.

I recommend Airport Home Appliance. This is where my investor/flippers go when they need new appliances for an entire house. There is a location at 966 South Bascom Avenue, San Jose. I hope this helps, Good Luck!

Easiest way to go to Home Depot and get a credit card with 10% discount applies. No haggling one price done in a few mins.

I have to agree with Monica. Having bought and sold many homes over the years, both as an investor and upward moving homebuyer, Sears never let me down.

There are some good independent shops if you are looking for Wolf or Viking, but for mainline brands, Sears will match any price and has always shown up on time.

I would give Lowes a close second, I do try other places from time to time. Other than Sears, Lowes and Piersons over in Fairfield, I have been let down.

Have fun shopping.

I prefer Western Appliance. They have good prices, and they have been around for years.

I like to shop at Sears outlet store in San Leandro (One in great Mall in Milpitas is waste of time). If you do not mind having some nicks on places where no one can see, then this outlet provides some great values. The warehouse is huge and they have items from low end to high end. However, if you do not want any nicks or scratches, then, best bet would be to shop around. Depending on time, places like Costco, Best Buy, Fry's Electronics, Sears, Western Appliance and Home Depot could have the item and price that you may want.

I like Costco for their return policy although Home Depot has almost same policy.

It depends on what you are looking for.
