WELCOME TO UNIVERSAL APPLIANCE AND KITCHEN CENTER
It’s more than just the price. It’s about the people. The knowledge. The follow up. It’s about creating an IMMERSIVE experience like no other.
Appliances have developed into a pure commodity today. Typically, any large appliance store and all the major retailers have competitive pricing, but must adhere to stringent pricing standards set by the appliance manufacturers, known as UMRP "Unilateral Minimum Retail Price.” This means appliance stores offering the best possible prices is usually a given. What is not is the showroom choice. The customer experience. The follow through. The installation. Universal Appliance and Kitchen Center aims to differentiate itself by providing the largest brand selection in Southern California, and creating a unique immersive shopping experience.
More than just an appliance outlet, or even a premier retailer of the best brands in home and kitchen appliances, decorative plumbing fixtures and outdoor grills, Universal Appliance and Kitchen Center is a purveyor of LIFESTYLE Solutions.
Explore and discover here, and in one of our appliance center locations, why we say it’s about delivering a WOW experience EVERY TIME.

The area that is now Tarzana was occupied by Spanish missionaries and settlers, who established the San Fernando Mission. When the area was later absorbed, during the Mexican American war, the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo ceded the land to the United States in 1848. Under U.S rule, a series of cattle ranges were established before investors took over to turn the grazing land into a large scale wheat farming operation.
In 1909, the area was purchased by the L.A Suburban Homes Company. General Harrison Gray Otis, the founder and publisher of the LA Times was not only a company investor, but also acquired 550 acres personally. The area continued to grow, but it was not until Edgar Rice Burroughs, the author of the Tarzan novels arrived in 1919, that the modern day name was inspired. The Burroughs family relocated from Illinois, but had wintered in Southern California and found the climate attractive. Burroughs purchased Otis’s land to establish the Tarzana Ranch. The land was subdivided and sold for residential development.
Today, Tarzana has a population of approximately 38,000, with a number of public and private schools. The neighborhood also has the Tarzana Recreation Center and hiking trails throughout the Caballero Canyon.
