Tomorrow after BSF I'll make a run to Arlington to Texas Appliances, in
an attempt to locate a couple of refrigerator models I can find online,
but no one actually has on-site. Mind, eager offers of ordering
one or the other are always forthcoming, but as I said, I simply refuse
to order a fridge based solely on the internet. I want to open
the doors, etc. and get a feel for it.
But darned if virtually every retailer of size around here doesn't
carry pretty much the same darn models! There's a certain Maytag
available on the floor of Lowes, Best Buy, Sears, and Oliver
Dyer. It's okay, I suppose, but it doesn't really do much for
me. OTOH, perhaps the fact all these companies have elected to
carry it means it's a reasonably decent model.
There's a GE and an Amana I would really like to see first, though.
The Samsung's a nonstarter, BTW. What a mercy I finally noticed
it hasn't got split shelves in the fresh food section....they're all
one piece and fixed, and the door bins are fixed as well. There
would be no way to stand a bottle of wine or anything tall in that
refrigerator, so o-u-t goes it. Pity! It was the most
attractive one of the bunch.
