Then life happened and the new dishwasher project got put on hold. At the beginning of this week, after Tony hand-dried an entire load of clean dishes, it got resurrected. He did some additional website research and determined that both Best Buy and Lowe's would be an option. We made a date to visit one or both of the closest locations of those stores today.
However, I was talking with a friend this morning and learned that there was a Best Buy Outlet store in the Chesterfield Valley. I pulled up the store website and found out that they carried the Bosch brand. The store didn't open until noon, but after we fed Jackson the Cat an early lunch we headed towards the area because both big box hardware stores have locations at Chesterfield Commons, which has designated itself as the longest outdoor strip mall in America.
We browsed at Lowe's, then headed down to Home Depot. Research done, we walked across Chesterfield Airport Road (the main thoroughfare) to the outlet store. Because I've always navigated the area by car, I had never noticed there was a crosswalk and walk sign, but they made the trek across the four-lane road much safer.
At the outlet store we found an upgraded Bosch model for just a little bit
more than we would have paid for a model with less features across the street.
The tag said it had a dent, but both Tony and I looked closely and couldn't
see it. Even the sales associate couldn't point it out.
