Castle Rock, Colo. â€“ August 29, 2017 â€“ At the heels of the completion of a new 3,000-square foot store, Castle Rock Kitchen & Bath hired Michelle Riccardi to manage the new location. Riccardi has been around and in the industry for more than 40 years, dating back to 1975 when her family purchased a whirlpool showroom. She was selling Kohler products in the late 1980â€™s.
â€œIâ€™ve been around kitchen and bath showroom for a very long time,â€ said Riccardi. â€œI remember my dad in his polyester suit at the opening of the store. Iâ€™ve been in showrooms almost my whole life.â€
Riccardi started her career in 1985 working in the family showroom up until she had children in early 2000. The last showroom she worked in did not carry Kohler products, so she sold them out of a catalog.
â€œItâ€™s been a real treat to open up the Castle Rock store and to see everything Kohler has to offer on display,â€ she said. â€œI feel very comfortable in this business and am lucky to have stayed in the Denver area â€“ where Iâ€™ve seen trends come and go, and the market go up and down.â€
Castle Rock Kitchen & Bath opened this summer and will celebrate its grand opening in early October. The new space located at 1733 South Perry Street, Suite 105.
â€œWe are very fortunate to have found Michelle and the breadth of experience she brings to our business,â€ said Tom Bush, store manager for Castle Rock Kitchen & Bath. â€œOur new store carries an array of plumbing products designed to help create the most up-to-date kitchens and bathrooms in any home, and our dedicated team of product specialists, led by Michelle, are knowledgeable experts prepared to assist with any questions.â€
The Castle Rock Kitchen & Bath store features four ensembles, five full suites, three kitchen sink displays, a kitchen area, a faucet wall, a toilet run, and a sink section. Each area is designed to help clients visualize the ideal product options most suited for their home. In addition to Kohler products, a wide variety of brands such as Moen, Delta, Hansgrohe, California Faucets, MTI Bath, Maax, and Brizo will complete the showroomâ€™s offerings.
Finally, Castle Rock Kitchen & Bath will offer scheduled deliveries to each customerâ€™s home. The staff is also available to supply references for those who may need an expert plumber.
