    Any one who is a Blaze King dealer or knows of a Michigan based Blaze King dealer could you please post to this thread? I would like to make it easier for future buyers as well as current owners to find the michigan dealers thank you.

    Macdowells Fireplace
    228 S bridge st
    Grand ledge Mi
    517-627-9400

    Konieczka Heating and Cooling
    3423 S. State RD
    Davison, MI 48423
    810-653-0299

    These are the two that I could find near me that dealt with Blaze King. There are more but they only order them on demand and only after they try to badger you into something else from what I have discovered.

    I've used Konieczka before, I didn't get my stove from them but they were very nice and helpful with what I needed. I'd advise anyone in the area that is looking to give them a shot. I just gave their info to a guy at work the other day.

    There ya go, Pete! I guess that's where the deals are in MI. :p Now that you have a BK thread, the Collective will locate you. Resistance is futile. You will be assimilated into BK perfection. Enjoy! :)

    Or, depending upon which pair of shoes you wear, you could get to Harrison in about an hour.

    We did not end up with Blaze King due to the ridicules markup in my area on them. I do hope this helps others who want them though!

    Good Luck

    That's too bad, they're worth the price of admission! If I didn't find mine so cheap I was going to drive to the place Hiram posted.

    Got to agree. My first almost full load went for 18 hours of honest 70-72°. Loaded up at 7 last night and I just talked to my wife, who said it was still toasty. Getting some solar gain today, but it was 8° when I left for work this am. Very pleased, and so simple to operate.

    We need to keep the BK population in check anyway. Afterall, Blaze King stoves are the #1 cause of global warming!

    Sorry guys I wasnt knockin on Blaze King I just dont understand things like sure you can buy the stove but the door is seperate for 235. Four dealers told me that! My bud out in kansas told me this morning he could get it for 2100 for the works, I cant find it in my area less then 3600. It just boils down to I think its a great stove but we michiganders seem to be getting screwed on the price. I suppose it would drop in price in the off season but I need a stove now and cant wait till then.

    The door shell and legs on my Lopi Endeavor were also extra so it's not an uncommon practice. I think we can all agree on the pricing on this side of the country being insane. The short drive to the place Hirman mentioned would be well worth it though. The BKVP that posted here said the pricing should become more even next year, I sure hope it happens!

    I didn't buy my stove from them, but I got some BK parts at Konieczka. It was a frustrating experience up until I called them. For the couple of dollars they made from me, they put a lot of effort into making sure I got what I needed. I'm not sure what their stove prices are like, but customer service is top shelf. And they should be pretty close to you.
