The idea behind closing Spillers Appliance and Furniture a while back was so everyone who worked there could go home.
But Mike Spillers found he couldn’t do that, so he just moved across the parking lot, downsized a bit, added internet access and got back down to business.
“We are still family owned and operated after 55 years,” Mike said. “I’m still doing what our family has done. I’m just still glad to be doing what I’ve done all my life.”
Other than location, few things have changed.
“We still maintain the La-Z-Boy brand,” he said. “Still have GE Appliances, just on a smaller scale.”
Mike said they do a lot of special orders and have kicked off a website for some of those orders. Mikey’s Comfort Connection LLC is the way to do that.
“If you buy something in stock, we have to add freight and assembly,” Mike said. “But if you buy it out of the warehouse off the website, you don’t pay any of that. It’s a good deal for the customer.”
Check their website against any competitor. Mike says you will find their prices are lower.
“Since we’re smaller, we are very competitive,” he added. “I make it my business to make sure we are under any competition in the area.”
Spillers can still accommodate their customers’ needs, locally. It’s their niche. When they deliver, they take the product in the house and haul off the old.
“We try to spoil our customers as best we can,” Mike said.
Be sure to shop Spillers’ pre-Labor Day sale. It’s already under way and will continue through the week of Labor Day. No interest financing.
