Expo Design Center closes for all Orange County residents

Special Promotion for all former Expo Design Center Clients in Orange County.

In what was sad news to remodelers of Orange County and Southern California all over, Home Depot has decided to close all 34 of it’s high end, Expo Design Centers.  It may seem odd to say sad as we were direct competitors, but many local sales reps got their start at Expo Design Center.  In Orange County, Expo Design thrived because residents usually could not get the high end look they wanted for their homes at Home Depot or Lowes.

The Atlanta retailer is closing all 34 of its high-end Expo stores nationwide – three in the Bay Area – as well the Home Depot Design Center in Concord and five Yardbirds, a hardware-store chain founded in Santa Rosa that Home Depot purchased in December 2005. The company also is shedding 7,000 jobs, including 600 in the Bay Area.

The nation’s largest home improvement retailer, along with its competitors and furniture retailers, has been hard hit by the housing crunch and the overall economic downturn, which has weakened the demand for buying homes and starting remodeling projects.

Home Depot announced Monday it was exiting its Expo business entirely, closing stores in 13 states. California has 12 Expo stores, more than any other state. The company said continuing the concept, which it started in 1991, would sap resources from its core “orange box” Home Depot stores. No Home Depot stores are closing.

Not to worry, the Signature Design Center is offering a special sale for all Expo Design Center customers looking to get quality and or custom renovations completed in their home.  We carry many of the same high end luxury items found at Expo Design Center usually at a better price point.  And because we are local we also have great relationships with manufacturers overlooked by Expo Design Center because of their size.

For the months of Frebruary – April, Signature Deisgn Center is offering a free premium dishwasher, stainless steel sink and garbage disposal, including installation for any custom kitchen remodeling job including flooring, cabinets, countertops and electrical work.  Minimum purchase of $25K required for this promotion valued at over $2500.  For details or an appointment please call me, Fred @ (714) 442-2798.
