Buying a Vacuum Cleaner Online vs In a Brick & Mortar Store
Whenever you are shopping for a new product or appliance, you will question whether you should buy the product online for convenience, or whether you should go to a local store and experience the product, talk to an expert and buy it there. These choices may vary based on your available time, budget and spending habits, and your location.
A vacuum cleaner is one of the most important appliances in your home, which helps you keep up with your household cleaning chores. The last thing you want is a broken vacuum right when you need it the most. In the current market, the prices and brands of vacuum cleaners can vary a lot. Just like when you are buying other appliances, it is true in the case of a vacuum cleaner purchase, that you get what you pay for.
Regardless of if you are choosing to buy a bagged or bagless vacuum cleaner, upright or canister, or even a stick vacuum cleaner, we recommend that you buy it in a brick and mortar store - preferably a local small business, than buying it online. You may still ask why and we'll explain below.
Small businesses such as vacuum shops are a part of the local economy. When you spend your money in your local community, not only do you support a small business, you in turn support the local taxes, provide employment, and also the social well-being of your community.
You can often find better in-store deals on a vacuum cleaner compared to buying online, as most online sellers have to follow a Minimum Advertised Price policy to be fair in online selling, however, a local vacuum shop can provide you a discounted offer in-store in order to earn your business.
Most small businesses who specialize in a particular trade are often more knowledgeable and can help guide you to the right product. It is always better to talk to an expert and actually test the product before purchasing it. Online, you only have a few pictures and a hefty price tag with very little guidance and description. Our experts can assist you with your floor cleaning needs and concerns, to help you get the most out of your purchase.
In store shopping not only provides personalized attention to your specific needs, but can often help you with after-sales services like repairs, replacement parts and accessories, and even take care of warranty issues provided that the store in question is also a warranty center for the vacuum brand you have.
