I’m sure you’ve seen one of the major chains offering spectacular kitchen sales with 50% off everything. How could anyone resist that? It seems too good to be true.
Well, there’s an old saying that, if something looks too good to be true, it probably is, and that’s certainly the case with kitchen sales.
The reality is, the big chain stores are one of the worst value places to buy a kitchen from, despite all their supposed kitchen sales.
How kitchen sales work
In the kitchen industry, most retailers work on margins of about 40% on the units. Therefore, if someone’s offering you 50% off the price of the units, they’ll be making a 10% loss. So, how can the big chains afford to make a 10% loss & not go bankrupt?
The reason they don’t go bankrupt is because their 50% off sales are all fake. The reason why they’re fake is as follows: Before running a 50% off sale, the chains first double the prices of all their units. They then advertise a 50% off sale. The sale is designed to mislead people into thinking they’re getting a bargain. They then try & pressurise people into putting down a deposit by telling them the sale ends in a few days.
How to get a better deal
Ignore the illusion of a kitchen sale from a major chain. If you buy a kitchen in a kitchen sale from one of the big chains, you’ll end up with an overpriced, low-quality kitchen. Instead, try the local showrooms, who won’t try to mislead you into thinking you’re getting a bargain by inflating their prices so they can then offer 50% off.
Instead of trying to trick you into thinking you’re getting a bargain, most independent showrooms will quote you their best price first. Plus, if you know the right showrooms to visit, it’s possible to get a kitchen that costs similar to the chains, but is higher quality & will last much longer.
How to find the best value local showrooms?
And how do I know this? well, for many years I worked for a large kitchen distributor that supplied independent showrooms around the country. So, I have a good knowledge of which showrooms sell what kitchen brands & how the price & quality of those brands compare to each other & to the chains.
