One of the best deals on carpeting, hardwood flooring, laminate, tile, and kitchen cabinets is going on now at local ProSource showrooms. During the sale, buyers get an additional discount of about 10 to 15 percent on many but not all items. Everything except granite and other countertops gets an additional 3% discount during the sale, and manufacturers are offering an extra 3-6% on about half of the carpets.
ProSource owner Ken Nash said that most manufacturers have agreed to hold off on price increases until after the sale. The price hikes, which Nash said were delayed during the recession, will be about 5 percent.
Traditionally, these semi-annual sales at the showrooms in Bloomington, Oakdale and Plymouth are some of the best deals on medium to better quality carpet and flooring, but Nash said that the prices on better kitchen cabinets are also among the lowest in the Twin Cities. ProSource carries the Masterbrand line, including Aristokraft, Omega and Diamond, which are similar to to cabinetry seen at the KitchenCraft showroom, said Nash.
If you're looking for inexpensive flooring and kitchen cabinets, you may be better off waiting for a sale at Home Depot, Menards or Lowe's, but this is a good time to buy on sale, at least through Saturday, April 13.
If you can't make a decision by Saturday, check out the showroom and consider waiting until the next sale in the fall. As always, it's best to shop more than one showroom or retailer for the best price and selection.
ProSource is open to members only, but area residents can get access by calling Jack Rubenstein Wholesale Company at 952-922-4781. Showroom hours for the sale are Friday until 5 p.m. and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
