Let us know how it turns out. The last time I went into a restore (many years ago) I was shocked at how high the prices were. It made no sense to buy anything there. Hopefully that was an exception.Thanks all!
That's a great suggestion with ReStore. I'll go check out the local one.

We purchased an used electric stove from http://barcelonaappliances.ca/index.html a couple of years ago. Old stove died and we were not ready to buy our be-all-end-all stove yet. Overall we were happy but keep in mind when you buy from a used appliance place that they need to make their mark-up so the savings are not usually epic like maybe you will find on KIJIJI. If you look at their online reviews people are either happy or unhappy... Lots of risk buying anything mechanical used IMO like a fridge or dishwasher.We recently checked out a few used appliance stores for fridges for our rental properties; Barcelona Used Appliances comes to mind (a couple locations).
Even when cleaned up, appliances are never as nice as new so we decided to buy new. Not worth it to take on someones old stuff to save a couple hundred bucks.
Awesome outcome.Thanks Joe Bass and Kedo. that is a great deal for a good looking dishwasher.
I ended up visiting another ReStore.... $30 for a black kenmore dishwasher with everything intact. They have a stainless steel Fridgidaire for $50, but the seal looks a bit beat up and parts of it melted. With ReStore, they don't know if they work or not, but I have 30 days to return it for store credit. Figures I can't lose to give it a try. Worst case scenario, I return it for store credit to pick up some filters and sealants, or a light. Even a toss away, it's a $30 donation to a good cause.
Yes indeed. I learned there can be such a huge difference in pricing with different location. The one at Woodbine was pricing at an insane level. Even ones that were dirty and yellow (formerly white) they were selling for $80-$125. Stainless steel ones were at $250-350. The one I went to is a small neighbourhood one, with only 6 dishwashers (I bought one at $30). There was a Fridgidaire stainless steel for $50, and the rests were $20 each. A lot more reasonable.Awesome outcome.
