SOUTH DAYTONA -- John Hinton, the face behind the zany John's Appliance and Bedding TV ads is excited about his latest appliance and blowout sale that starts the day after Christmas, now that the Mayan scare has passed.
Hinton cracked, "The world was supposed to end today, but I guess the Mayans got their dates wrong.
And with the Mayan calendar scare as a backdrop, Hinton is offering what he calls "end of the world bargains."
Normally open 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Saturday, Hinton and his sales staff will have on-site bedding and cabinet professionals to meet the needs of the customers looking for that specific fit.
