    Places to Buy Box Fans Cheap

    Box fans are an inexpensive way to keep cool in the summer. With temperatures exceeding 37.8 degrees Celsius in some places, it's important to be able to keep the heat at bay. While many homes in the south have air conditioning, some in the north do not. In addition, a box fan is much less expensive than running the air conditioner. There are a few places where you can pick up an inexpensive box fan that will be sure to keep you cool in the summer heat.

    Grocery Stores

    Believe it or not, many grocery stores carry small electrical appliances like blenders, coffee makers and box fans. Many of them price the box fans slightly higher than discount stores or hardware stores because of the convenience factor. Instead of having to make two stops, one for groceries and one to pick up the box fan, you'd only have to make one stop. While a little more expensive, though, they are still quite affordable.

    Electronics Stores

    While box fans are still affordable at electronics stores, they will probably be priced higher at these stores than anywhere else you'll find them. Home and vehicle electronics like stereos, televisions, mobile phones and video games are usually the central focus in these stores, and smaller items are marked up to make a greater profit because people usually purchase them for convenience when shopping for something else or purchase them because they have a store credit card and want to use that as a payment method.
