Welcome to California Closets Eden Prairie
California Closets Eden Prairie is proud to have been a part of the vibrant, metropolitan community of Minneapolis St. Paul for 21 years. We truly enjoy the experience of working with our clients, listening to their specific storage needs and dreams, and working together to create inspired storage designs for Minneapolis's beautiful homes. Our history in the area means we have a deep understanding of the storage needs of Eden Prairie residents.
It has been a pleasure to serve the Twin Cities for the 21 years we've been in business. We look forward to working with you again soon.
Come Visit Our Showroom
We recommend all our customers visit our showroom and see our inspired storage systems on display. It is a great opportunity to see first hand our finishes and fixtures so you know you are making an informed choice about what will look best in your home.
Our showroom is located in the Galleria Shopping Center, so not only can you visit our showroom, you can have lunch and browse the other interetsing shops in the center.
Who is the California Closets Customer?
We work with clients who have many different home designs and layouts, from older stately homes to modern appartments. Wisconsin's older homes in general tend to have smaller closet spaces that need a maximized design.
Whatever the storage need, California Closets of the Twin Cities can provide an inspired solution.
Meet Moe and Michelle
Moe Sweeney and Michele Skjei have been the proud owners of California Closets Eden Prairie for over 20 years. Both Moe and Michelle are residents of the Minneapolis area, here are their unique stories:
Moe Sweeney was a banjo maker and cabinet maker at the beginning of his career. After seeing a California Closets display at a homeshow in Denver in 1983, he went to work for corporate for a short period. Originally from Wisconsin, Moe moved his family back to the Midwest in 1989 to start up the Minneapolis franchise. Moe currently resides between his home in Edina and cabin in Wisconsin. He has two wonderful sons who live in Minnesota and pursue their own professional passions and aspirations.
Michele Skjei was Moe’s first hire, and the original Design Consultant for the Minneapolis franchise. Her love for the company and product led her to be a natural fit to ownership for the franchise. She and Moe became partners in 1996. Michele resides in Lakeville with her husband and two sons, who are still in high school. Michele and her husband are real estate partners and keep busy with their son’s hockey and football schedules.
It's All About Local
We manufacture out of our Bloomington shop and offices, located on the frontage road north of 494 between Hwy 100 and France Avenue. We like to work with as many local vendors as possible.
We also partner with and recommend several local businesses:
- Garage Floor Coating is our partner for garage or basement flooring solutions.
- We recommend Mulberrys Garment Care for all dry-cleaning needs. They are a toxin free dry-cleaning solution.
- Located conveniently across from our Design Studio in the Galleria is The Brass Handle -- an excellent option for all hardware needs in the home or business.
