College pals Nick Silbaugh and Ryan Hegna couldn't have guessed that the humble business they founded while still in school at Arizona State University would grow by leaps and bounds. According to CBS5, the duo started out by repairing audio equipment out of their home. Today, Best Deal In Town has expanded considerably, specializing in discounted LCD, LED, and plasma flat-screen high-definition TVs from brands such as Sony, Samsung, and Vizio. When asked on ABC 15's "Smart Shopper" series how they?re able to keep prices so low, Silbaugh said that they buy large quantities of open-box models from big retailers. The TVs are typically store returns, overstocked merchandise, or manufacturer-discontinued models, but they "are still brand new and working well," according to the Ahwatukee Foothills News.
The store also stocks a huge selection of below-retail-priced electronics and accessories, as well as furniture for home theaters and offices. The staff outfits TVs with wall mounts and cables and equips residences with faux security cameras, which can ward off thieves, vandals, or year-round Christmas carolers.
