 Re: Champion Windows

Author: wvuguy (---.cinci.rr.com)
Date:   

Yes, they hit me with a funny "offer".......

Supposedly, they had a "condo" job (consisting of several hundred windows) on the production schedule beginning that evening. If I signed the contract by 6PM, my order could be added that that fabrication run, which would theoretically save me about $1,200 from their roughly $8,200 quote.

That immediately sounded fishy to me.....but since I was interested at the time with Champion, my wife and I agreed to go down to their showroom to look at their casements (which the Sales Rep did not have in his possession at our home). As it turns out, the Gilkey Window showroom is right on the way to Champion, and I stopped in there FIRST.

When I mentioned to the Rep that Champion offered a big discount in return for a quick committment, he said ".....oh, are they adding your windows to the end of a big commercial order" ??? We both got a nice laugh out of that one. He said Champion has used THAT story for years here in Cincinnati; their headquarters.

It's too bad, because.....as I said above....I feel they sell a pretty decent product: perhaps not state-of-the-art, but solid nevertheless.
