Take the ‘Trail Test Drive’ at new appliance showroom in Nanaimo

Take the ‘Trail Test Drive’ at new appliance showroom in Nanaimo

Dreaming of a dishwasher that accommodates your large glassware? A laundry machine that fits your favourite overstuffed comforter? At the new Trail Appliances Nanaimo Showroom, you can size up your next purchase in person.

The new 12,000-square-foot interactive showroom, which opened Dec. 2 at Metral Drive and Enterprise Way, features nine display kitchens and hundreds of appliances from 50 major brands, like Samsung, LG, KitchenAid, Maytag, Frigidaire, and more!

Take the Trail Test Drive

Trail Appliances is proud to offer the Trail Test Drive, which means you can touch the controls of the appliances on display in the showroom, explore their settings and hear them working before you make a decision on your purchase.

Displays also include products you can use to test fit – like towels in laundry machines or dishes and cookware in dishwashers! Or, you can bring in your own belongings from home.

“Some people bring special bakeware or wine glasses,” says Store Manager Justin Singh.

Any appliance questions?

The Trail Appliances experts have you covered. All of their product experts attend “Trail University,” an eight to 12-week training program about all things related to appliances.

Singh attended the training himself, and learned things that surprised him even after seven years in the industry.

“I used to think front load compact laundry machines were made to fit tight spaces,” Singh said. “But now I know compact machines with European heritage are also often extremely energy efficient and designed with textile preservation in mind.”

Singh added that he and his team — 80 per cent of whom are local to Nanaimo — look forward to welcoming residents to the new showroom.

“It’s a gorgeous showroom — definitely a sight to see,” he said. “Whether you’re replacing an appliance or looking to build your dream kitchen, our goal is to ensure you have the best experience possible.”
