We may not be able to travel overseas at the moment, so we’re bringing every corner of the globe to you with SA’s Spartan Electrical.
You know you’re getting old when your favourite weekend activities include wandering the Spartan showrooms, browsing hundreds of appliances on offer. It’s easy to while away a couple of hours rebuilding your dream kitchen in your head, complete with a colourful SMEG fridge and a huge Westinghouse oven, of course.
Over 50 years ago, founder Peter Tsoutouras started out by following ice block delivery drivers around and knocking on Adelaidians’ doors to sell them the newfangled fridge. Ask your parents or grandparents where they got their appliances back in the day… there’s a good chance it was from Spartan!
As Spartan grew, so did Peter’s family — and now his children Chris, Con and Athena, as well as her husband Andrew and his nephew Con G, all work in the family business, bringing a modern touch for kitchen enthusiasts to fall in love with. You’ll still find Peter dishing out advice in the showrooms, too! Over the years, their range has grown to include all contemporary appliances, decking out South Australians with everything they need for their kitchens, laundries and outdoor areas.
It doesn’t matter whether you need to replace a cooktop or build an entire kitchen, the customer service never waivers — you can expect a cup of coffee and a chat to make sure you’re walking out with the perfect appliance. Both the Campbelltown and Torrensville showrooms are immersive so you can really get a feel for how each different appliance works, from premium and exclusive brands like Siemens, Sub Zero and Wolf right through to the everyday brands like Westinghouse, Fisher & Paykel and Electrolux.
The service never stops at Spartan — the delivery team is prompt and professional, and offers reliable delivery with rubbish removal (they’ll even take your old appliances away for you, as long as they’re unplugged). And the best part? Spartan is wildly competitive with their prices, so you can expect to pay the same price (or better!) than at any other national appliance store.
It’s not unusual to walk into Spartan and smell something delicious cooking in a demo oven, or simmering away on an induction cooktop. Given that food is such a huge part of Spartan, we’re taking a quick lap around the globe, exploring the appliances that come from every corner and showing you the worldwide culinary creations that you can make at home.
