Wilson’s Appliance has expanded into Lake Placid, and they are planning to celebrate.
The new Lake Placid Wilson’s Appliance store, located at 6193 Sentinel Road (the corner of Routes 73 and 86, next to the stoplight at the top of Mill Hill), will host a grand opening event Saturday, June 29, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
“We will have raffles for a high-efficiency washer and four Red Sox tickets along with giveaways to the first 100 customers,” Nate Wilson said. “There will be manufacturing reps on site, a free barbecue lunch, deep discounts and very aggressive pricing.”
Wilson said he has been pleased with the flow of customers coming into the store through word of mouth, as the site has been opened for about three weeks prior to the grand opening event.
He added that the company decided to put a store in Lake Placid based on business that they had been seeing at the Plattsburgh location.
“For us as a business, Lake Placid has been a market that has been growing constantly,” Wilson said. “We thought that there was a lot of opportunity here that we were missing, and we are here to capture a lot of that.”
Wilson said that the store would give residents in the Tri-Lakes who are Wilson’s customers a closer location to shop or get service, while attracting a new base of customers.
“There is the opportunity now to attract the business of some of the seasonal residents who are not as familiar or aware of the Plattsburgh market,” he said.
Wilson’s Appliance in Lake Placid will sell major household appliances along with televisions and electronics. They also have a parts and services department on site.
“It is a full parts department with a fully stocked inventory and the knowledgeable staff that you need to go with that,” Wilson said.
Store hours are from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Mondays through Fridays, and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturdays. The store is closed on Sundays.
