HONESTY. EXCELLENCE. ACCOUNTABILITY. VALUE. 

WELCOME TO UNIVERSAL APPLIANCE AND KITCHEN CENTER

It’s more than the price. It’s about the people. The knowledge. The follow up. It’s about the creation of an IMMERSIVE experience like no other.

Appliances have become a pure commodity in recent years. Generally, all of the major retailers and large appliance stores have competitive pricing, but must adhere to stringent pricing standards that are set by the appliance manufacturers, known as UMRP "Unilateral Minimum Retail Price.”  As such, appliance stores offering the best prices possible is typically a given.  What is not is the choice at the showroom. The customer experience. The follow through.  The installation.  Universal Appliance and Kitchen Center differentiates 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.

Universal Appliance and Kitchen Center and Topanga, CA

The city name of Topanga can be traced back to the Native American Tongva tribe and it may mean “a place above”. Topanga had its first European settlers in 1839 and it became a popular destination. By the 1920s Topanga Canyon was a great weekend getaway for a number of Hollywood stars who appreciated the privacy and beauty of the rolling hills and ample greenery.

During the 1960s, the area drew many new artists with many notable names living in the area including Neil Young, David Briggs and Wallace Berman. In fact, the murder campaign of the Manson family began with the murder of a Topanga resident in 1969. Gary Hinman was a music teacher who was known to open his home to anyone in need of shelter. 

The Topanga Corral nightclub also attracted myriad performers including Neil Diamond, Etta James, Neil Young and the then Topanga locals Canned Heat. It is also rumored that Jim Morrison’s “Roadhouse Blues” was inspired by the drive to the Corral up Topanga Canyon Boulevard. The club was destroyed by fire and rebuilt in the 1970s and featured many L.A punk scene bands. Unfortunately, a fire in 1986 destroyed the Corral and it was not rebuilt. 

Today, Topanga continues to be popular with artists and the annual Topanga Film Festival occurs each July. The organizers, the Topanga Film Institute aim to provide cultural exchange and networking opportunities to expand the community.
