Beechcr has (he appliances that go places . . . VVestinghouse, Frigidajre, Roper, Youngstown, Hamilton, Sunbeam, General Electric . . . all top quality lines. One important phase of his business is the service department. Each new appliance that comes into the store must be uncrated and completely checked before it is put on the sales floor. After it is sold it is again rechecked, delivered and installed properly. If there is a trade-in, (hat is brought to the service department for a thorough "going over". If the appliance is worth fixing up, it is then checked, worn parts replaced, tuned up, painted and then put jn the used department. People call Beechcr the Wildest Trader in Town. There is a reason for this. His many years experience has trained him to know the true vjilue of a used appliance. Just because an appliance doesn't function properly, many people think that it is worthless. Beccher can tell what is wrong with it, what new parts it may take and he has the parts in stock to fix it up. Trained workmen using proper tools put it in tip top shape. Selling his used appliances is, no worry to him as people know how good they are. A complete stock of parts for every make is a in ust in the appliance business. This requires much time, knowledge, endless parts and several manuals, — but it makes people happy to know there is service behind the product. There arc many dcfferent appliances and just one of each model fills the store so the buck up slock is waiiioused in his building on Diagonal Street. Beccher feels (hat it is his duty to keep his customers well informed. His consislant ads in the newspaper inform then) of new mmlels, special sales, cooking schools and demonstrations. Before delivering an appliance he makes sure his customer is informed as to how to get the most service from the appliance, needier even hires a factory demonstrator to help with problems in the home after the appliance is sold. Yes, service is the backbone of his business.
