About Us

Mary’s  Appliance has been in existence since May 1, 1993 when the Sears Catalog Stores closed across the US.   Mary had been the local Sears Merchant for 26 years here in Falls City and had built a reputation of taking care of her customers far beyond the Sears policies.  She had become an avid promoter of Falls City and had developed a great love of the community so it was only natural that she would continue selling Appliances after Sears left.

The customer base did not let her down and 30 years later Mary’s is the largest Appliance business in the three state corner.   Supported by Jamie Strathman, Jeff Martineau and Kenny Strathman, dedicated salespeople,  who share the belief that customer satisfaction is the most important part of the job.  Installation and Delivery services Provided By Lee Carter, Jeff Martineau, Kenny Strathman. We will take care of installing, instruction, and haul away of your old appliances.  Jamie Strathman will offer you a major part extended warranty and do some of the mounds of paperwork required.

Clearly Mary’s Appliance is a team effort by employees who take pride in customer service.

Mary’s Appliance is a member of Brand Source, a small merchant buying group, which provides us with the edge to compete with the big box stores and chains in the cities to keep prices competitive, thus keeping you at home.  If you have window shopped at a big box store, bring your list into Mary’s and see if we can match the prices and keep your money circulating in our city and not out of town.   Mary’s closes almost 98% of those transactions,  sometimes we beat thier prices, so you can see we are competitive.   Mary’s offers nearly 250 appliances in stock with name brands such as GE, Maytag, Speed Queen, Amana, LG, Café, Bosch, Samsung, Frigidaire, and most other market players.

Mary’s also carries a parts inventory so if you are a DIY and just need a part, bring your model number in and let us provide your part to you.   IF we do have to order, most parts are only 2-3 days out. We do work with two service companies that are their own separate business to take care of your service repair needs. Mary’s appliance we focus on providing you the knowledge of the product and best appliances that are on the market today!
