Family owned since 1950, Boston Appliance knows a satisfied customer will be a repeat customer, so the store tailors its Woburn showroom to be a low-pressure, educational experience, a counterpoint to the commission-driven sales push of national chains. From top-end brand names like Sub-Zero and Wolf to along the value spectrum of name brands, Boston Appliance stocks the latest editions of fridges, washers, and dryers. In an age where seemingly every trusty appliance has a slew of new web-enabled features, you’ll appreciate having a trained salesperson there to guide you through the choices.
