    That guy is mad progressive, not the first time he's taking such left-leaning positions.

    Any suggestions for a washing machine repair technician in CH?

    Odel didn't answer me.
    Thanks
    IME he's very good, but good luck getting him to show up...
    or even return a call....
    Same can be said about almost any appliance repair person. I've used quite a few and was happy with all that I can recall, and then when you need them most they won't respond.
    he's in his own league...

    To his credit he responded to me via WhatsApp - to which he said he doesn't service LG washing machines.

    I paid appliance maven to tell me I need to replace the entire machine. He came really fast, just a few hours after I reached out to him.

    https://patch.com/new-york/prospectheights/crown-heights-supermarket-reaches-deal-stay-nostrand-avenue no TJ in the end...

    Didnít realize a TJs was in the works, that would likely put a dent in the profits of the local Kosher supermarkets, especially the MP.

    I can't say whether or not it was actually in the works, but there definitely were rumors of that.

    In NY - as long as not requiring special rush service - paid for by Uncle Sam.
