More than 50 years ago, a man named Peter Genier opened an appliance shop at the edge of Vernon, BC. Genier’s TV Colour Sales Ltd. sold many of the first bunny-eared television sets that brought some of Canada’s early shows to life for residents in the Okanagan.
As technology evolved, over time, Genier’s introduced products such as the channel changer and the VCR.
Families marveled at the actors’ faces on screens inside Genier’s showroom, but they also visited the 48th Avenue store for something else: friendly, honest staff.
Today, Genier’s Home Appliances is owned by the Kirkham family and the store now houses one of the biggest selections of home and kitchen appliances in the Vernon and surrounding area – including Kelowna appliance stores and Kamloops appliance stores .
Even more than the building and the logo we all recognize, the Kirkhams inherited a reputation for outstanding service.
Just as it did in the early days, Genier’s prides itself on spending time with you to help you choose just the right appliance from the best brands available.
We care about making your home a happier place with the perfect kitchen appliances.
Our non-commissioned sales staff will walk you through our live showroom so you can touch and test features and find out all there is to know about everything from built-in refrigerators and gas ranges to silent dishwashers and wine grottos.
Among the 58 brands Genier’s carries, you’ll see international and Canadian appliances you won’t find anywhere else in the Interior.
These are just some of the ways we strive to serve you better than the big box stores. Genier’s also repairs any appliance you buy from us so you can enjoy the peace of mind of knowing we’re always here to help.
Between the small-town service and the nearly endless selection of appliances, Kelowna and Kamloops homeowners are making the drive to Genier’s, with delivery available Okanagan-wide, from Kamloops to Osoyoos.
