If you’re anything like me, you love a good sale. And I’m not just talking about any ol’ sale, I’m talking about the kind of sale that has the power to make you feel giddy in that I-can’t even-believe-I-scored-such-a-great-bargain-and-saved-so-much-money way. I mean, if it’s not a quality product or item on sale, is it really a “deal?” If it’s going to break right away, you might as well just throw your money in the garbage. (I haven’t always had this mentality, as with most lessons in life—I learned this one the hard way, through trial and error.)
When I heard about two great sales that are happening the next two weekends during the Midwest Home Luxury Home Tour, I was interested for a few reasons: I actually need some of the items on sale, these stores have a great reputation for quality products and service, and the sale only happens once a year! If you (and I) don’t take advantage during this short window of time, we’ll have to wait another whole year for the prices to drop this low again. So, while you’re out touring the beautiful million-dollar homes on the Luxury Home Tour, save time to stop in at the Kohler Signature Store, 7101 France Ave. Suite 109, Edina, MN 55435 from noon to 5 p.m. and Gerhards – The Kitchen and Bath Store, 13540 Wayzata Blvd., Minnetonka, MN 55305 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. throughout the remainder of the Luxury Home Tour, June 13, 14, 15 and June 20, 21, and 22.
When you’re at the stores, be sure to enter a contest to win a two-night stay at Grand View Lodge, a family, golf, and spa resort situated on Gull Lake in the Brainerd Lakes area.
What special offers are being extended through the sale at Kohler Signature Store? We are selling display fixtures: Vanities, toilets, and medicine cabinets at 50-70 percent off retail price. We are also selling kitchen and bath faucets at 50 percent off retail. The Sensate, Simplice, Bellera, and Cruet are the four kitchen faucets we have on sale at the store.
How often do you have sales of this caliber? (Is this a once-a-summer opportunity?) Yes this is only for the Luxury Home Tour. We only do this once a year.
What does Kohler offer over the competition? We are different because we truly give personalized one-on-one service, we are competitively priced direct to the consumer, and we give complimentary design services.
What does Gerhards offer over the competition? Gerhards is a “one stop shop” for kitchen and bath related products and installation services. We can handle as little or as much as someone requests and can coordinate the installation of our products from start to finish. (We are a general contractor; our license number is BC673805.) We also have a beautiful conference room where the designers can project their customers’ designs onto a 60-inch TV for easy viewing.
A little-known fact about Kohler Signature Store is … that we are a retail store open to the public, and you do NOT need to make an appointment to come in! We offer the full breadth of Kohler products, including Kallista, Ann Sacks, and Kohler Water Spa at our location.
A little-known fact about Gerhards is … we don’t require appointments, and we offer free cabinet design services. We carry Moen, Delta, Kohler, Cambria, Silestone, Corian, and Masterbrand Cabinetry products.
Would you like to add anything else? Both stores provide a one-stop-shopping experience for your bathroom project and installation needs.
