In 1953, Fred Marzelle Hill, Sr. and wife Dorothy Taylor Hill opened Home Appliance & TV in Monroe, Louisiana, and a family legacy was created. Originally focused on the sales and service of home appliances and electronics, Home Appliance & TV was taken over by Fred Hill, Jr. in 1972, and has continued to expand to include new family members, including Fred and wife Pam’s sons Jeff and Stevie Hill and their grandsons Devin and Rance Hill. The family also co-owns Hillco Properties.
Over the years, this family business has undergone several evolutions to eventually become Skent N Dent Appliance Outlet. All the products offered by Skent N Dent have a warranty, are direct from the factory, but have a cosmetic flaw, such as a scratch or dent. This flaw, often unnoticeable, allows the customer to purchase a brand new appliance for 30% – 60% below retail price.
Skent N Dent Appliance Outlet offers two convenient locations, the original Monroe store which also features a large parts and service department and the Shreveport branch which is retail only and opened in the fall of 2013. Skent N Dent Monroe provides in-home service calls for their customers and they staff several in-house technicians to ensure the quality of their appliances.
Promising “exceptional customer satisfaction”, Skent N Dent Appliance Outlet gives shoppers a unique buying experience with a warm, family-friendly atmosphere and unbeatable prices, Skent N Dent is the perfect choice for your new appliance.
