If you're considering hardwood flooring, carpet, vinyl, or tile, here's advance notice of a sale from one of the Twin Cities' largest wholesale showrooms.

Check out ProSource, a national wholesaler that's for builders, remodelers, contractors, architects, interior designers, real estate professionals, rehabbers and installers, but can shopped by anyone with a connection. (And we've got one.for you.) It's having its semi-annual Octoberfest sale Oct. 23-27 with extra discounts from manufacturers. Shoppers can start looking now and make the discounted purchase when the sale starts in three weeks.

During the sale, select brands get additional discounts of 10-25% off plus everything gets an additional 3% off. Although the discounts may seem on the modest side, ProSource's regular prices are often among the lowest. Unfortunately, it's difficult to compare carpet prices since big box retailers use private labels, but shoppers can always ask for a free sample of the flooring they want and then shop it around.  

Regardless of what type of flooring, tell the salesperson where it will be used, the amount of traffic the room gets, and the number of adults, kids and pets in the household. What works fine in a rarely used basement may quickly be worn down in an entryway. 

ProSource is a members-only showroom with selection that ranges from budget to luxury. To gain entrance, call the Jack Rubenstein Wholesale Co. at 952-922-4781 or email Jen at sales@jlrwholesale.com. Save $50 on your order if you go to Rubenstein's website and fill out the form for a showroom consultation. ProSource locations in other states are also having sales in October, although dates may vary. 

ProSource Minnesota is located in Plymouth, Bloomington and Oakdale. Store hours are Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Tuesdays and Thursdays from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. Shop on Saturday Oct. 21 and Oct. 29 by appointment only. 

Register during the sale for giveways including a Fat Tire bike, a Yeti cooler. and a patio heater.
