We recently completed the expansion of our Grand Rapids Showroom with the addition of the Bekins Builder Appliance Center. The Builder Center is located a few doors down in the same building at 6275 28th Street S.E.
The Builder Appliance Center is designed to showcase appliance packages for ease of selection and shopping. The packages are made up of Whirlpool, KitchenAid, and other popular appliances not included in our main showrooms. Appliances are pre-selected and grouped, and the prices are already discounted for “builder pricing.” The center also includes an area for “cash and carry” clearance appliances.
Builder Appliance packages feature American-made, quality products with Bekins installation and service to back it up.
If you haven’t seen the new A.K. Rikk’s store you are missing an incredible retail experience. In fact, the project won the Outstanding Merit award by The Association for Retail Environments. Bekins was proud to be a member of the team who made this vision a reality. We are doubly proud considering the A.R.E. awards are concentrated in New York, Chicago, Montreal and other large urban retailers. Winning one for our home town of Grand Rapids makes us smile.
Our contribution was the audiovisual electronics integration most notable in the dramatic media wall. We designed and installed the Crestron control system that automates the building.
