As a teen, Blink Appliance’s employee Allison Blink didn’t head to the mall or the local diner after school. Instead, she headed to Blink Appliance & Kitchens. “I was always here filing,” chuckles Blink, whose extended family has kept the family owned business going for over 58 years. “I worked here throughout high school and every summer, but after college, I did think it was important to take another job.”
And then, she came back.
“I think working somewhere else gave me a good sense of the way we could do things differently in our family’s business,” says Blink, whose grandfather and founder Duane Blink laid the groundwork to this successful family owned business. “When I began working here full time nearly five years ago, I helped to computerize the back room. Now I’m working on ways to increase our presence within social media. We are always looking for ways to continue to evolve.”
Led by Allison’s father and current owner Doug Blink, Blink Appliance & Kitchens continues to provide quality products at a great price, while treating customers with unsurpassed care and attention to their needs. “We offer so much more than what the big box stores can these days,” explains Doug Blink, who has over 30 years of experience in the business. “We specialize in high end products and built in appliances that, which are more complicated to sell and install. Because of this, most box stores don’t even handle these types of products. We also can offer a real hands-on, personal approach to customer service with an award winning staff that is quite knowledgeable.”
And while undivided attention can be tough to find at today’s big box appliance stores, Blink Appliances make sure every single customer receives all of the information they need to make an educated choice in terms of their appliance or cabinetry purchase. Looking for a sale? You won’t find it here – Blink Appliances prides itself in always offering the very best prices, no matter what.
“We even organize and fill out all of the mail in rebate paperwork for our customers,” adds Allison Blink. “We know what a hassle those forms can be, so we consider it just another way of assisting our customers with all aspects of the purchasing process.”
