Historic San Jose store going out of business

This is some of the saddest news of the year so far.

Western Appliance, the appliance store that has been a staple in the South Bay for almost 150 years, is going out of business. 

They put up a notice on their website stating “It is with sadness that the founding family, directors, and management of Western Appliance announce that the company will close its business after 146 years of retailing in California. Western Appliance will begin an orderly liquidation with aggressive discounting and sale offerings lasting several months. We will remain in operation until the last customer’s order is delivered.”

Everyone has a relative that got their dishwasher or some type of appliance from Western Appliance, it’s sad to see them go.
