The Kohler Co. will open one of its Kohler Signature Stores on Sept. 10 near Mayfair Mall in Wauwatosa.
The Kohler Signature Store by First Supply will feature design services for both kitchen and bath, including product selection, design development and project assistance.
“We provide a gracious service and unique experience that isn’t currently available in the marketplace for the Kohler brands,” said Kathryn Poehling, chief operating officer for First Supply’s kitchen and bath division. “We connect the interaction of the product experience and the design environment and offer our local customers the opportunity to see and touch the full line of products from Robern and Kallista to Ann Sacks and Kohler.”
The company is leasing 5,869 square feet of space at 2525 N. Mayfair Road for the store, on the west side of the street, across from the mall. U.S. Cellular, Fitness Together and Family Christian Stores have occupied space in the building recently.
The Kohler Signature Store by First Supply marks the 12th signature store to open across the country and the second for First Supply following the first distributor-owned Kohler Signature Store in Edina, Minn., which opened in 2012.
In 2005, Kohler Co. launched Kohler Stores in the Chicago area. Those stores were successful, so in 2012 Kohler Co. launched its Kohler Signature Store concept.
This store is the fifth for First Supply in southeastern Wisconsin joining the Gerhard’s Kitchen and Bath Stores in Brookfield, Whitefish Bay, Sheboygan and Kenosha.
