American TV & Appliance's going out of business sale begins today

By Amy Burke. CREATED Feb 20, 2014

MILWAUKEE -- American TV & Appliance's "going out of business sale" begins at 9 a.m. Thursday morning.

The 60 year-old company announced Monday that it will be closing its doors, leaving more than 900 workers without a job.

American TV has three locations in the Milwaukee area and plans to sell off its entire inventory.
 
The Better Business Bureau said that closing sales are typically handled by a third party, which means you could end up paying an inflated price instead of getting a discount.
 
Here are a few tips from the BBB:
  • Use your gift cards as soon as possible
  • Credit cards are best to use for purchases (built-in protection)
  • Sometimes you can haggle to get a better price (If there is no warranty)
