CD players, dishwashers, refrigerators, personal computers, digital
cameras, plasma and LCD TVs, and DVD players. The company also has
a distribution center and a service center offering parts and

departments also repair home furniture.
After a few years of expansion followed by the global
recession, American TV & Appliance in mid-2011 announced it
would pull out of Missouri, closing four St. Louis-area stores and
a distribution center. It marked down $22 million in merchandise to
complete the move, which was prompted by
recession-related sluggish sales.
