Best Appliance Stores in Ottawa
At Deslaurier Custom Cabinets, we strive to give our clientele sound reno advice. That’s why we’ve put together this list of appliance suppliers with a few key criteria in mind. All the appliance stores on the list below made the cut based on:
- Google rating
- Number of locations in Ottawa
- Key services
- Years in business
Please note that the appliance stores below are in no particular order.
Universal Appliances is a local shop, centrally located on Bank Street with literally thousands of products and dozens of brands to choose from.
The 4500+ sq. ft. appliance showroom can be found at:
- Ottawa (1915 Bank St)
Founded in 1953, Universal has a long track record of success serving the Ottawa area. Family owned and operated for three generations, Universal is a company devoted to the customer's experience.
By the way, their website advertises a Price Match program, where if you can find a better price, Universal will refund you 100% of difference.
Out of 100 reviews, Universal scores a 4.2 star Google rating at the time of publication.
Canadian Appliance Source (CAS)
Canadian Appliance Source, also called CAS for short, is another well-known and reputable local appliance store in Ottawa.
CAS has more than 20 locations across Canada and three in the Ottawa area:

Notably, in the Ottawa area, you can find Corbeil at:

- Gloucester (1900 Innes Rd)
- Gatineau (1100 Bd Maloney O)
Corbeil has a 3.6-star Google rating out of 215 reviews at the time of publication.
The Appliance Gallery on Bank
The Appliance Gallery on Bank is a downtown showroom, and the only showroom in Ottawa that displays 90% of all available Canadian Miele products.
If Miele is your appliance brand of choice, this store should definitely be on your shopping list. Apart from Miele, The Appliance Gallery also offers a select few premium brand names, such as Gaggenau and EuroCave. Check them out at:
- Downtown Ottawa (433 Bank Street)
Based on 25 reviews, The Appliance Gallery holds a 4.4-star Google rating at the time of publication.
Buying appliances from local businesses is great, but that doesn’t mean you can’t score a great deal at a big box store.
Home Depot is a large chain home improvement retailer. If you shop seasonal sales, you can find amazing discounts on kitchen appliances. Plus, Home Depot offers an in-house financing program. Home Depot has multiple locations in Ottawa, including:
- Gloucester (1616 Cyrville Rd)
- Ottawa (2056 Bank St)
- Nepean (1900 Baseline Rd)
Beyond these three Ottawa locations, you can also find Home Depot in Kanata, Barrhaven, Gatineau, and more. With 1715 reviews on Google, Home Depot has a 4.2-star Google rating at the time of publication.
Box stores like these are advantageous because they buy in bulk to offer lower prices. That can be a pro because you can keep you costs low. However, the company focus on moving inventory quickly may make it difficult to purchase items that you looked at 9-12 months previously, when you were planning your kitchen reno.
We recommend double-checking logistical details like these, and always reading the fine print of your warranty, but that goes for all appliance suppliers!
