OK...How about Electrolux DLX 2000 in Ft. Worth, TX? :)

Funny how life works sometimes.  I complain about not being able to get an Electrolux DLX in Canada and a round trip ticket to the good old US of A gets dropped in my lap.  I'll only be in town for about 3 days, can anyone recommend a store that carries the Electrolux DLX?  It's a business trip so I won't have a lot of time for shopping around.

 

TIA

You can't find someone that ships to Canada?!?

If not, have an e-tailer ship it to your place in TX.  I got mine from Pleasant Hill Grain and they're very easy to work with.  Of course you'd probably have to turn around and ship it home yourself because the box is quite large and you can't carry it onto an airplane.  I wouldn't want to put it in checked luggage.

I could ship it, but if I can buy it when I'm in the US I won't have to pay for shipping or duty.  It'll save me about $100 CDN (or $200 if I were to buy it from the only Canadian web site I found that carries these).

Ok, got it.  Best of luck on your quest.  Funny,  I just bought a set of cookware from Canada for many of the same reasons . . .

I  live in Ontario, and bought my D L X from Kodiak's, in U S, Toll Free 18664782530 if you wanna give them a call.

I went with them as they paid the shipping to Canada.

Just called them, they are out of stock.  I also made the mistake of trying to contact Electrolux in the US.  I was bounced around endlessly and bounced back to the Canadian end who were even less than helpful than the American side.  I think the terrible customer service alone would warrant me going with the Bosch.  I was truely amazed how everyone at Electrolux seemed less interested in helping me buy one of their products and more interested in getting me off the phone and on to someone else.

I have just arrived in Fort Worth.  If I can't find one I can get a family member to get one and bring it back next spring but I'd prefer to find a retail outlet here and take it back now.  Are these things even available at retail brick and mortar stores?
