Lakeshore Appliance located in Redmond Washington celebrated its Grand Opening in the summer of 1956. In June of 1974 John Arnold purchased the store (at that time called Georges Lakeshore Appliance and TV and located on NE 8th in Bellevue). He renamed the store Arnolds Lakeshore Appliance and TV.
Arnolds Lakeshore Appliance and TV carried a few of the major brands of free standing appliances along with console and table top televisions. After a few years of steady growth Arnold had outgrown the small store on NE 8th and in September of 1983 decided to move to the newly built Apple Green Center (now called "The Design Market of Bellevue") across from Overlake Hospital on 116th in Bellevue Washington. In 1987 with his eye on retirement Arnold brought his daughter and son in law (Joan and Rick Moline) into the business. That same year due to the dramatic changes within the electronics industry it was decided to move out of the television business and focus solely on appliances and in particular built in appliances. A new sign was needed and "Lakeshore" was dropped from the name creating the current Arnolds Appliance.
In January of 1988 John officially retired and turned the reins over to the children. Steady growth required a move in 1999 to a larger building next door to the old showroom. In August of 2008, Arnold's moved again ... to our beautiful new showroom at 1625 132nd AVE NE Bellevue. The enormous new showroom has products displayed in kitchen settings with many hooked up live so you can compare them and see how they will perform in your home.
Arnolds Appliance currently carries some of the finest most innovative products from over 40 manufacturers. The third generation now roams the floors in preparation for the future, allowing the Arnolds family to provide these quality products along with delivery and installation for many years to come.
