Welcome to California Closets Minneapolis
The Minneapolios branch of California Closets was opened by a cabinet designer who had bigger plans than standard closet design. Our training, staff, equipment and technology have been hand picked to deliver the best design solutions that the industry has to offer.
No storage problem is to big or small. We encourage outside the box thinking and even if it is not a solution we provide, we will recommend one that meets the clients needs. We value our clients above all else.
Top of the line quality comes standard at our franchise. Our standard drawer is dovetail, wood construction with soft-close runners. The best option is always presented upfront.
Not Convinced? Come See California Closets - LIVE!
Our showroom is conveniently located in the Galleria Shopping Center. We have a wide range of fully built systems on display everyday.
We encourage all our customers to visit our showroom to see first hand how a California Closets storage solution looks, feels, and functions. This is the best way to make sure you are making the most informed decisions about what will look beautiful in your home.
At California Closets, we like to give back to the community. We offer our showroom as a location for meetings and events for 50-100 people. At one of our own very bustling events, we have had as many as 300 people come through during a 3-4 hour period, and very comfortably!
Who is the California Closets Customer?
At California Closets Minneapolios we know that no two homes are the same, and no 2 customers are the same. The way you use your storage spaces might be completely different to your neighbour.
We service clients of all different types and design situations from new appartments to older homes with small closets that just need the space optimized.
We also work with community groups in Minneapolios to help them optimize their spaces. One of the projects we do very often is renovations to accommodate the unique clothing sizes of athletes in Minneapolis sports teams.
Whatever the storage need, California Closets of the Twin Cities can provide the solution.
Meet Moe and Michelle
Moe Sweeney and Michele Skjei are the proud owners of California Closets Minneapolios. Moe and Michele are both residents of the Minneapolis area and have transformed Minneapolis homes by designing and installing custom storage solutions for over two decades!
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.
