Sleek, stylish, sophisticated. Those three words aptly describe the Restoration Hardware aesthetic. It is a go-to brand for anyone looking for timeless elegance in the design of their home furnishings. At Restoration Hardware, the high quality of the goods normally calls for a high price, but for Grossmont Center shoppers, there are terrific deals in store at Restoration Hardware Outlet.
The outlet store is not the same as its regular retail counterpart. While they both carry many of the same styles, the outlet stock flows down from the retail stores in the form of floor samples no longer needed, or items that have cosmetic scratches, for instance. That means shoppers should carefully inspect each item to make sure they are happy with it—all sales are final and in “as is” condition—but in most cases any flaws or signs of wear are minor, and the prices more than make up for the blemishes. All items are marked down to outlet prices depending on their condition, and savvy shoppers time their visits to align with sales that add on even greater discounts. (If you want to stay in the know, make sure to sign up for the outlet store’s email list during your visit; it is an easy way to stay on top of current and upcoming deals.)
Multiple shipments arrive at the Grossmont Center location each week, which means shopping at Restoration Hardware Outlet is a bit like a treasure hunt. Each week you can see what new finds you can discover. In addition to major home furnishings such as couches, dining sets, media cabinets, and beds, the outlet also carries blankets, pillows, mirrors, towels, rugs, bathroom accessories, lighting, and much more. You will definitely want to carve out some time to explore all of the offerings showcased in the outlet’s vast two-story space.
If you need a guide to help you on your hunt for just the right coffee table or patio set, just ask one of the friendly and knowledgeable sales associates for help. Restoration Hardware Outlet at Grossmont Center is renowned for its fabulously helpful customer service.
“We will go the extra mile to help our customers,” says store lead Kinsley Austin. “This can mean assisting a customer in measuring a piece of furniture, tracking down the availability of an item in our inventory, or even making suggestions based on a customer’s needs and design style. Sometimes we even have customers spot an item they want in our retail catalog and ask if we have it—if we don’t, we will keep an eye out for it and can contact the customer when it is in stock or arrives at our store.”
As you browse the outlet, you can see the hallmarks of Restoration Hardware’s products. Home furnishings are finely crafted, built to be durable as well as beautiful. The pieces are all created to work in harmony together, so you can cultivate rooms in your home that please the eye through the careful consideration of symmetry, balance, and proportion. The designs reflect a wide range of influences—everything from ancient Morocco to 1930s Paris—that are given a contemporary spin to produce that signature streamlined Restoration Hardware aesthetic.
In addition to home furnishings, the outlet sells plenty of accent pieces. Textiles are pleasing to the touch and look great, too. Feel and see items for yourself such as the plush bath towels, high-quality cotton-cashmere bed sheets, and ultra-luxurious faux fur throw blankets. The breathtaking chandeliers light up a room, figuratively as well as literally. Rugs are woven in a range of fibers, such as jute, sisal, and silk. Aside from decorative design pieces, there are also the more functional items that every home needs: desk and floor lamps, switch plate covers for electrical outlets, faucet sets, and cabinet hardware, among others.
Restoration Hardware Outlet shoppers looking to purchase large items are advised to come with their room’s measurements in hand to ensure the home furnishings will work in their space. If you see something you like but need to think it over, or you have other errands to run at the Center, the sales staff can place a hold on an item for a couple of hours. While the outlet doesn’t offer its own delivery service, the sales associates can gladly offer you some referrals to help you get your new piece of furniture home within the 24-hour pickup window.
