Tonight I attended a special open house event at Warehouse Discount Center in Agoura Hills, CA. The idea behind these open house events are to get kitchen designers excited about new product lines so that we can share this information with our clients.
Even more so, I encourage client’s to visit appliance stores that offer product demonstration days. You will want to learn how to work effectively with these new appliances before you purchase them. Call your local appliance store and ask if they have product demonstration days. Also, you should know that appliance distributors encourage customers to come see cooking demonstrations at their authorized product centers throughout the country.
Saturdays are good days to visit your local appliance stores, especially if they have live displays. Product demonstration days are fun times. Live displays, ovens filling the air with savory delights. Sweet crepes gently prepared before your eyes and served up with fresh strawberries and cream. Tasty appetizers abound as you move from display to display.
Ask your local appliance store to direct you to the nearest complementary product demonstration event. They usually hand out free tickets or can provide you information about additional cooking classes offered. Purcell Murray in California does a great job with product education classes. Viking Product Presentation in Southern California is offered by Sues, Young & Brown. Reservations are required, so go on line to reserve your seat. These product demonstrations are held in a non-selling environment. So relax, it is not a high pressure time-share sales pitch.
Thanks again to everyone at WDC for a great evening. The salespeople really did a great job with the open house. Their enthusiasm was contagious. Do you have a good appliance store in your town? Share your story here.
