Kohler recently announced two of its Kohler store locations in Glenview and Burr Ridge, Ill., have been acquired by Logan Square Aluminum Supply, doing business as Studio 41, an authorized Kohler plumbing distributor. Studio 41 will operate the kitchen-and-bath retail locations as distributor-owned Kohler Signature stores.
Studio 41 owns and operates several kitchen-and-bath showrooms in the greater Chicago area. Additionally, Studio 41 plans to open a new state-of-the-art retail Kohler Signature Store at the corner of Hubbard and Orleans in Chicago in late summer 2014. The Kohler store under Kohler ownership at the Merchandise Mart in Chicago will remain open through June 30.
“Both Studio 41 and Kohler share a passion for selling our products and delivering the excellent service that has made the Kohler stores the place to buy plumbing products in the greater Chicago area,” Kohler President-Kitchen & Bath Americas Hugh Ekberg said. “The quality of Studio 41’s Signature Store teams will set new benchmarks for the local market, just as we have witnessed in our other Kohler Signature Store locations. We look forward to the future together.”
