New Meet the Owners Page

Can two close friends who have known each other since childhood, succeed as business partners? In our case, absolutely.

We’re Walt Burrell and Charles (Chip) Alstrin and we have owned California Closets Chicago- Lombard since 1993. We are both Chicago natives who think that the Chicago area is a great place to live and raise families. Chicago has also been a great place for two friends with a passion for great design and fine craftsmanship to build a business that helps our Chicagoland neighbors to live and work more efficiently in their homes and workplaces.

Our objective has always been to provide our clients with brilliant design solutions and a total experience that is second to none, and one that surpasses their expectations. For us there is nothing more enjoyable than speaking to a client who has recently had a system installed, and hearing their enthusiasm as they talk about their new closet or home office.

Repeat and referral business accounts for a significant percentage of our total sales, and we are gratified to see so many of our clients returning for new projects and referring us to friends. We greatly appreciate the support from Chicagoland clients and we firmly believe in giving back to the community. Our company donates to many local charities and schools and we hope that you will join us in support of worthy local causes such as the Infant Welfare Society and the Naperville Juniors Women’s League.
