Preparing to hang a new banner for their family business at 131 Sixth Ave. in McKeesport, from left, are Evan Wallace, Gordon McCulloch and David McCulloch.

Owners of McCulloch Appliances have expanded their family business by moving into a space formerly occupied by friends.

The warehouse at 131 Sixth Ave. in McKeesport was home to Tube City Appliance for more than 15 years. After just six months in business across the Youghiogheny River in Elizabeth Township, the McCulloch family was ready to expand and allow Tube City owner Deane Woy to retire from refurbishing appliances.

McCulloch Appliances locations are operated by David and Teresa McCulloch with help from their children Evan Wallace, Jessica Wallace and Gordon McCulloch.

The McKeesport store will honor Tube City's warranties, David McCulloch said. The family guarantees all of the items it stocks.

McCulloch Appliances sells washers, dryers, refrigerators, stoves and dishwashers.

“We sell all brands,” Evan Wallace said. “We repair every make and model.”

The McKeesport shop and McCulloch's original location at 5909 E. Smithfield St. in Boston receive new stock weekly.

“We want people to come in and see what we have,” David McCulloch said. “We have good appliances, and the prices are down to earth.”

McCulloch Appliances offers discounts for active military personnel and veterans, as well as first-responders such as EMS personnel, firefighters and police. Delivery services are available.

In McKeesport, McCulloch Appliances is open Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. For more information, call 412-664-1333.

The Elizabeth Township store is open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Call 412-896-6477.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
