Need An Appliance? Beware Long Delivery Waits

 

Need a refrigerator, washing machine, or range?

Watch for long delivery times due to the pandemic

Boggs and other retailers cite three reasons:.

Springtime plant shutdowns, where some US plants were closed for 3 months.

Shipping delays from China, with crates of appliances stuck in ports around the world for several months.

Surging demand, as homeowners redo their homes this year instead of spending thousands of dollars on vacations.

A Sears.com refrigerator that first said "3-day delivery" actually won't be available for almost 6 weeks.
