Since moving to Tipton in 1931, the Bixler family has owned retail operations in Tipton and the surrounding communities. Today, Bixler Home Appliances specializes in kitchen and laundry equipment, commonly referred to as white goods. These include refrigerators, gas and electric ranges, dishwashers, microwaves, freezers, washers, dryers, dehumidifiers and room air conditioners. They are a full-line Whirlpool dealer offering additional brands including Maytag, Amana, Estate and KitchenAid. David Bixler is a third generation member of the Bixler family, which owns the business.

"We are in our 80th year of operations as a family business in Tipton,"

Bixler said. "My grandparents Dan and Betty Bixler moved their business interests to Tipton in 1931. The family has been active in other retail interests over the years, but appliances have been a constant since the late 1930's. Our showroom focuses on home appliances. We are able to assist consumers with decisions relating to new home construction, remodeling or individual kitchen or laundry replacements."
