King and Bunnys, a family owned business, opened its doors July of 1982 in a small portable building (600sq.ft.) with the help of good friends. Their beginnings were very sparse with catalog books, a hand truck and a beat-up delivery truck. With six basic white, low end appliances placed on the showroom floor King and Bunnys was opened.
King and Bunnys, now many years later, has had four remodels and expanded to 3200 sq. ft. with a beautiful showroom displaying over 200 major home appliances. They have a local warehouse with over 400 units in stock, all available for immediate delivery.
King and Bunnys is located on Sunset Blvd (SR900) in Renton, WA, just 2.5 miles east from I-405. Three miles away is the Boeing plant were the 737 and the 737MAX airplanes are manufactured and next door to Boeing is Paccar where Kenworth trucks are manufactured. The employment base just in that local area is over 12,000 employees.
King and Bunnys is entrenched in the local community; they believe in giving back. Throughout the years King and Bunny, as well as their team members, have volunteered, been involved with service clubs, chambers, sport clubs and civic organizations. King and Bunnys support auctions, local events, schools, charities, service clubs and much more.
King and Bunnys is a member of Nationwide, a 5,500-member buying and marketing group, whose collective buying power is over 20 billion dollars annually. This appliance buying power is equal to Sears, Home Depot and Lowes combined. Hence, King and Bunnys "WHAMMER DEAL"!
King and Bunnys offer competitive prices, knowledgeable team members, in stock inventory, fast deliveries, quality installation, doing business with integrity, honesty, and caring customer service.
BELLEVUE SUNRISE ROTARY APPLIANCE PROGRAM
The Bellevue Sunrise Rotary, recognizing its commitment to the ideal of service to others in our community, established an Appliance Program to support families in need.
Bellevue Sunrise serves local families in need of a new appliance, whether that be a stove, refrigerator, dishwasher, etc. Bellevue Sunrise Rotary has supplied the funds to its business partner, Renton's King and Bunny Appliance Store to purchase the appliances at a discount. Sunrise Rotarians evaluate and coordinate removal and installation of the new appliances.
To date Bellevue Sunrise has purchased 100 appliances in Renton at a value of $60,000.
For all of us involved in this project it is a deeply gratifying to witness the immediate positive impact these appliances have on the lives of those in need in our local communities.
