I Is for Idler's Home
Now the newer Paso Robles Idler's houses the Outlet Center for the North County. This photo shows just part of the Outlet Center, which carries new but slightly blemished merchandise for greatly reduced prices. Believe me when I say the selection in the Outlet Center is almost as large as the selection in the main store. There are washers, dryers, stoves of all kinds, dishwashers, wall ovens, microwave ovens, refrigerators, cook tops, freezers, you name it.
Idler's also has model kitchens on display, like this one. They include not only the appliances, but also the cabinets.
If you explain the features you need, they will know which of their appliances will meet your requirements. They can also help you determine whether what you want will work in your kitchen or how to make it work.
In addition to finding the best selection of appliances in town, I like to shop at Idler's because Don Idler gives back to the community. He was named Atascadero's 2009 Citizen of the Year by the Atascadero Chamber of Commerce. Whenever a drop-off place is needed for a local charity drive, I usually hear Idler's mentioned in the list of places you can drop off your food or other contribution.
Idler's sponsors a local "Mom and Apple Pie Contest" every May with great prizes for the winners. (See this year's winners here.) Idler's (along with Whirlpool) donated several refrigerators to the local Food BankCoalition of San Luis Obispo County. Idler and his employees also personally support Loaves and Fishes, the El Camino Homeless Organization, and other local charities serving those in need. In addition Idler's sponsors a team for the Relay for Life. So when I shop at Idler's I know I'm helping my community more than I would be were I shopping the big box stores which don't have anywhere near the selection Idler's does.
Be sure to check the Idler's website for location, hours, and current best buys. Why not pay them a visit first when you need appliances, mattresses, or furniture? You probably won't feel the need to go anywhere else.
