         LG Fridge

 

 

There are few things that irritate my wife as much as our home refrigerator.

There’s something cool about LG fridges, no pun intended. LG has become the #1 Refrigerator brand in Canada* and for good reason. You don’t just get a fridge you can rely on; you get so much more. More room, more organization and more design options. And you can never have too much storage capacity or too many organization solutions and design options. An LG fridge is everything your kitchen needs. You know what else you get more of? Choice. Choose between their larger, super and mega capacity refrigerators in 30”, 33” and 36” widths.
