The Airport Home Appliance store in Hayward, California, is part of a family owned Bay Area chain of discount appliance and mattress stores. As of 2015, the store offers 17 luxury brands, including Amanda, Whirlpool, Bosch, GE and Samsung. Mattress brands include Sealy, Serta and Tempur Pedic.
The first store opened in Hayward in 1963, right across from the Hayward Executive Airport, hence the name. The firm started out selling small appliances and furniture but gradually changed into a retail outlet store.
The company now has additional stores in San Jose, Redwood City, Berkeley and Concord. It also has a website, AirportAppliance.com, offering online sales, ads and downloadable manufacturer's rebate forms. Items ordered online may be picked up at the Product Distribution Center in Hayward or delivered. Financing, extended warranties and price matching are offered.
The company's clearance center division gives further discounts on products that have been opened, have small dents or scratches, or that have been discontinued. Customers can save up to 50 percent off the normal retail price. The Airport Home Appliance website has a listing of items and the stores where they are located, but the inventory is constantly changing. Items are sold on a first come, first served basis.
