Another reason to shop local

The other day we realized our dryer, which is 17 years old, was sounding like a train, the washer was not far behind sounding the same way.  Since the parts are no longer made we knew we needed to buy a new set.  We went to Doyons appliance.  With all the back orders due to the pandemic, we were so pleased our the sales staff helped us find a washer dryer that could be delivered by January 2, 2020.  The prices at Doyons are comparable to the big box stores.  The experience was easy and fun as well.  To be able to sit across a table with a knowledgeable sales person was a treat.  When we need a new stove Doyons will be the place.

Doyons is located at 15 Whistle Stop Way, Gloucester, MA  01930, 978-283-0783.
