Closet Prices

We'd like to help anyone who wants to improve their closet & storage efficiency. Price shouldn't be a barrier. Therefore, we have many options in 3 broad price categories--Good, Better & Best. The options are endless but your budget is the starting point for determining what will work best for you. If possible, we may even be able to re-use your existing material for additional savings. Also, please consider how we compare to other local closet companies.

Comparisons with Other Companies

In an independent, home-owner survey conducted in March 2005 a dozen Twin City closet installation companies were contacted for a quote on a very common 8' wide reach-in closet. Two did not return calls or submit a quote. This closet was to have a center tower with drawers and shelves. On each side would be either long or double short hanging. Some companies only quoted an average price per lineal foot, others didn't quote exactly what was requested. So although, it was impossible to exactly compare apples-to-apples and oranges-to-oranges, the results are as follows:

California Closets $1400
Storganize 850-1700
Closet Classics of MN 1000
Closet Factory 1000
Saratoga Closets 980
Kambium 850
Deans 698
Storage Solutions 675 (all laminate)
Creative Home Solutions 665
Personal Closets 638
Storage Solutions 475 (combo)
No Response: Home Options, Closets Plus

In a much older version, the following price comparisons appeared in the Variety Section of the Star Tribune November 1, 2001 (Excerpts from "A place for everything" by John Ewoldt): 'We sought bids from 6 local [Twin City] closet design firms on a shallow entryway closet and a guest bedroom closet. Both are about 6' long. All material is 3/4" laminate.'

The Results:

California Closets $1522
Storganize 1190
Closets to Cabinets 1174
Closet Factory 1095
Saratoga Closet Outlet 951
Closets Plus 913
Storage Solutions 865

Here's how Storage Solutions compares on the same two closets :

All Laminate 865
Wire/Laminate Combination 675
Wire (both) 375

So you can see, we're among the lowest priced in the Twin City market. We may not always be the rock-bottom cheapest but we are always willing to work with each customer for a storage system which meets their needs and fits into their budget. Incidentally, we don't have minimum job sizes as some of the others do.
