A female customer walked into McCombs Supply's showroom on Thursday, Nov. 8 with a bake element in her hand. The left corner of the element was snapped apart.
"My husband told me to come here, that you'd have what I need," she said.
She was looking for part number W10779716 and we selling it for $46.95. As I printed her paper work, she said, " I need this fixed. Thanksgiving is coming," she said.
Ah, yes, Thanksgiving is a great motivator.
People work around a broken range/stove or wall oven until Thanksgiving comes and then there is a frenzy to get the appliance repaired.
If it is cleaning the house or fixing broken parts, a holiday, birthday or a milestone event tends to jump start the process.
This customer used Thanksgiving and the upcoming "big" meal to make sure her oven was fixed. It was a long time coming, she said, about a month, actually. She likes to cook in the oven, so a month using the crook pot was becoming a hardship.
