Ashland ApplianceOther than the fact that we had their wrong address listed in the May ad, there has been a major development at Ashland Appliance and Mattress. After twelve years in the same location, they simply outgrew their space, and they’re now located in the Ashland Shopping Center (1672 Ashland Street), right next to Ashland Artisan Emporium. Owners Joel and Jenny Jessee are happy with the move.

“We simply needed a bigger space,” Joel said. “We offer appliance sales in Whirlpool, Maytag, Kitchen Aid, LG, Miele, GE, Cafe and Amana Appliance brands. With mattress brands we carry Serta Artic, SmartLife, King Koil Tufted-Hybrids-Xtended Life-Latex, and Natural mattresses made with natural rubber, tencel, cotton and wool. We also carry hand-crafted, hammered copper furniture with reclaimed wood and handmade in Mexico.”

With deep roots in the Valley, Joel comes from a family well-versed in the appliance and mattress business.

“I have lived in Southern Oregon since 1980, when I was three years old,” he said. “My grandfather has been in the business since 1955 and my father since 1984 in Grants Pass. I am third generation. We moved from Huntington Beach in 1980 because my grandfather wanted us to be in a smaller community and get out of the concrete jungle as he called it. I personally have been in the industry since 22 years of age and spent time in the Dominican Republic for two years from 1996-98. I am fluent in the Spanish language.”

Joel’s family were friends of Bill and Millie, who owned Courtesy Appliance here in Ashland for many years. When they decided to retire, the Jessee family opened a store in Ashland, and it has proven to be very popular and convenient for local customers (it beats driving to Medford when you can get just as good, if not better, deals at Ashland Appliance and Mattress).

“We have great prices that compete with Medford and the Big Box stores, and we’re a local store that supports the community,” Joel said. “We are part of the buying group BrandSource that allows us to buy like the big guys. We’re appliance and mattress retailers, and we are specialists in the field. We do our own service and provide professional installs. We also sell pillows and sheets.”

Customer service is the number priority at Ashland Appliance and Mattress. “We strive for excellent customer service and expertise, all at a competitive price,” Joel said. “We have some of the best delivery and installation professionals in the business. They take the time to install it correctly and show customers how to use their products.”

The store carries a wide variety of appliances, from dishwashers and refrigerators to stoves, washers, dryers, freezers and more. They demonstrate all of the top-name brands and provide delivery. You can have it in your house and installed the same or next day.

“We’d like to thank our amazing community in adding to the principle of buying from and supporting local businesses,” Joel said. “We invite everyone to stop by and see us at our new, expanded location.”
