The Great Indoors is essentially a chain of home decor stores that offer home appliances as well as kitchen and bathroom fittings. They also provide custom kitchen and bathroom design facilities. The Great Indoors stores tend to be large scale (130,000 square feet on average). If you are looking to create your own indoor utopia, here follows a brief review of this popular store.
Overview and history
This chain of stores is actually owned by the Sears Company that was originally established towards the end of the nineteenth century. Previously a section of the Dow Jones Industrial Average, Sears amalgamated with Kmart in 2005. This then became the Sears Holdings Corporation. Originally starting with a simple mail order service, the company expanded to become the foremost trader in the United States by the middle of the 20th century. Rivalry and fluctuations in the demographics of its clientele tested the company after World War II as its countryside and urban strongholds withered and the suburban marketplaces developed. In time, its famous catalog program was phased out.
The Great Indoors is a great store for browsing for home decor and renovation articles. They offer an assortment of merchandises that cannot be found in many other stores. Shop smart However, much like in any other department store, you have to look carefully and ‘shop smart’. That way, while you may pass items that you feel are low quality or rather high-priced, you can find some unique, quality and great value items. In fact, often you can find that perfect accessory at a significantly lower price than you can find anywhere else. If you go to many of the other massive department stores dedicated to interior design or home furnishings, you will often find the identical product time and time again. However, at the Great Indoors you will often unearth unique, one of a kind products. Counter top department One of the best sections in the store is the counter top department. The staff here can be very helpful and knowledgeable on the subject. You will find all kinds of counter materials available including graphite and the sample displays make shopping for choice so much easier.
On the downside, one aspect that can certainly be improved upon is that in the customer order area. Some difficulties can be experienced with certain special order items. In addition, attempts to find an in-house designer for consultations can often be frustrating and even, at times, fruitless. Opinion Overall, this is a great place to shop with a variety of value for money items that will be sure to improve your indoor living spaces.
