John Lewis Watford Store To Close

John Lewis Closing in Watford - The High Street is Changing

John Lewis in Watford now set to close putting many people out of work. The lockdown has hit a lot of businesses hard, from large to small, and that has caused many to close never to reopen. This has been seen locally in the Rickmansworth & Watford area with the Intu shopping centre going into administration and stores such as Debenhams are now ceasing to trade locally.

Sebo Vacuum Cleaner Bags to Washing Machine Sales and Service

Smaller items such as Sebo vacuum cleaner bags are only available in-store but you can view the product descriptions and price on our online store.

With the Watford John Lewis department store closing, shoppers from Rickmansworth, Chorley Wood, Northwood and Croxley Green areas may be concerned that they will be unable to get face to face specialist help and to view the appliances in the store.

Albany Appliances Family Local Business since 1975

Local businesses are the backbone of the community offering personal services to the consumer on a face-to-face level that you simply cannot get online. We regularly have customers wanting to buy built in refrigeration appliances and are unsure of whether these will fit. Looking at diagrams online can be confusing and many customers would rather be reassured that what they’re buying will fit.

Being a local business with a presence on the highstreet we have staff with a wealth of experience that can give advice on compatibility and recommendation on which appliance is best suited to your needs.

For those that are unable or unsure about coming to the store, we offer an on-site appliance survey service to check dimensions to be absolutely certain the appliance will fit. Another service that is difficult to find online.

There will always be a need for local businesses, whether you need to buy Sebo vacuum cleaner bags, a microwave, steam iron or a new washing machine, built-in appliance or any other appliance you can rely on us.

Appliance Online Store Open 24 Hours

As a local business we have big ambitions, we have access to over 2000 appliances plus we price match other larger retailers, such as John Lewis, Currys and AO (subject to availability).

Price Match on Appliances and In Store Demonstration Screen

We also offer installation & repair services and much more. If you already have a price, why not call the store or pop in to see what we can do.

We also have a large screen in store, which we can use to display products which we may not have on the shop floor. This is our way of bring tech instore to enhance your shopping experience.

Many businesses are having to adapt to comply with the regulations laid down by the government, this includes limiting the number of customers in the store at any given time to comply with social distancing regulations.

This applies especially to businesses with small showrooms. With the current COVID-19 epidemic people are less likely to shop in-store due to fear of infection and many are now are turning to shopping online until it is safe to shop in store again.

However we acknowledge that for some, the process of shopping online may be more convenient for them. That’s why the Albany Appliance Centre in Rickmansworth have spent countless hours during the lockdown period increasing our online presence. This includes carrying out essential work on our website and optimising our product catalogue to select only the best products at the best prices.

We hope you all stay safe and well, look forward to seeing you soon.
