Best Buy’s family of appliances is getting a bit bigger. We will be selling Maytag appliances — including a French door refrigerator, front-load washer, 10-cycle dryer and stainless steel gas range — at more than 600 stores later this week. The products are already available at BestBuy.com.
Maytag is a longstanding brand, started in the late 1800s, and is now owned by Whirlpool Corporation.
“Our goal is to give our customers the best selection of top appliances, and partnering with Whirlpool Corporation to offer Maytag products is the latest example of that commitment,” said Kevin Balon, senior vice president of Appliances at Best Buy.
This isn’t Maytag’s first appearance at Best Buy. Pacific Kitchen & Home has always carried Maytag appliances, including more than 200 models within Best Buy stores for the last several years.
Whirlpool Corporation, the No. 1 major appliance manufacturer in the world, also currently offers Whirlpool, KitchenAid and Amana appliances at Best Buy. Whirpool Corporation employs more than 97,000 people and has 70 manufacturing and technology research centers.
