Below is an ad that clearly identifies Appliance Discounter co-owner Anthony Slyman:

An early Slyman Brothers ad that pays tribute to their well-known Arch commercial:
@STL15 like Arnold said, 'it is what it is cuz.'
Appliance Discounters are using the name Slyman to get business, Slyman is in their ads and in every store everywhere you look. A bunch of scam artists and I would be embarrassed if i was the owners of appliance discounters.
@STL15 is* were*
Cardinals or JH. it is what it is cuz.
@amym_alex I do not think anyone is threatened by anyone. I think this was a business move brought on by a lot of things that finally added up to too much. There is a lot more to the story here and it is unfortunate it made it into the media because it honestly shouldn't concern anyone but those directly involved. @Becca Bradley and @Kenneth Lee M you are right, no one should deny their name and who their father is and I do not think either party wants that. Greed and entitlement play no part here. I believe Slyman Bros. wants to maintain their great reputation, one they worked very hard for, humbled themselves for and dedicated their lives to. In order to do that, they do not want to be affiliated with another business. Bottom line. I'm sure if you asked most business owners if they would like to be associated with another business that had no affiliation with them and was selling the same product, they would say no.
@natalie.slyman @amym_alex If SB doesn't want to be affiliated with AD then why are they suddenly a scratch and dent dealer when they haven't been for 48 years?
@cardinals Scratch and dent is not Slyman Bros. specialty, they mainly sell new appliances. Their choice to sell scratch and dent (if they do at all, I'm not sure that they do much of that) was probably driven by the market, not another business. Slyman Bros. does not keep tabs on other business's products, they sell what they believe their customers want at that time. And I think it is pretty bold and outrageous to assume that since they may sell scratch and dent from time to time, they then want to be affiliated with AD.
@Arnold @cardinals @natalie.slyman Is Almo a factory?
@Arnold @cardinals @natalie.slyman Hey Arnold, the person's name is Natalie. I rehab homes and usually spend around $3000 on appliances. From now on I will look for the same package for $900. I wasn't aware that I could save that kind of money on appliances. Thanks!
@cardinals @natalie.slyman Jimmy, just ask your dad about refurbished appliances. Almo has them too
@cardinals @natalie.slyman Hey Jimmy, just ask your dad about refurbished. Almo has them too.
@natalie.slyman So what you're saying is that a dealer can buy appliances in three different ways; factory refurbished, scratch and dent, and normal? How does the factory determine if a product is classified under refurbished or scratch and dent? It sounds to me like only the refurbished goods are tested but what if a scratch and dent appliance also has something wrong with the way it works? Why wouldn't they test everything?
Factory refurbished means that when appliances come in damaged to dealers, they get sent back to the factory for inspection and as long as it is a cosmetic defect, Slyman Bros has the option to buy it at a discount and pass along the discount to the customers. Slyman Bros didn't come up with the term. If you need any further clarification, I'm sure you could contact Slyman Bros and they will be happy to explain.
@natalie.slyman @cardinals I'm sorry, their website says "factory refurbished," which doesn't exist. The factory doesn't restore appliances, they build them. Sorry, I was wrong.
Obviously, they are threatened by Appliance Discounters, if people wanted to buy appliances from Slyman Brothers, they WOULD have, give people credit, they are going to shop where there is a good deal and the name is going to be secondary.
@Kenneth, I could not agree more. Most level-headed people would be able to understand that; however, when there is greed and entitlement involved, sometimes the truth hurts.
A great name in the appliance biz, hope they work it out.
family disputes are always ugly. Especially when one member of the family goes out on his own ... to compete against the family business. That said, the owner's name is Tony Slyman. Is he supposed to change his name and deny that his father was Bob Slyman just to avoid confrontation. I could maybe see if his company name had "Slyman" in it some where but he has every right to attach his name to his own business. They should be happy he doesn't discuss that his father started Slyman Bros. and that he himself had worked there.
The American family..God Bless America....next on springer
I think Slyman should win!
