We serve a huge variety of different types of businesses - everything from flower shops and grocery stores to dog groomers buying ribbon for poodle bows. No matter what type of business you are involved in we undoubtedly have things here to help you out. Signing up online will give you access to all the commercial portions of our website, and we'll have a buyers pass waiting for you when you visit us. Or you can just stop by and do it the old fashioned way with ink on paper. We do require simply that our commercial accounts have a state business license, and are using the product in some commercial manner. The only other thing we would need is a copy of your Washington State Resellers Permit if you are reselling the product and don't want us to charge you tax. Our prices within the warehouse are marked at retail, and you will get the wholesale discount from your purchases at the time of invoicing.
Don't have a commercial business? No worries - you're more than welcome to shop. We have one of the largest accent / interior decor selections in the Northwest, not to mention silk flowers and plants, containers, Christmas decor - I could go on... We are truly the Designers' Warehouse, and we'd love to share everything with you. Our Tacoma location hours are 11:00 am to 3:00 pm Sundays, and 7:00 to 3:00 Monday through Friday (closed Saturdays.) Our Spokane location is open 7:00 am - 3:00 pm Monday - Friday and closed Saturday and Sunday. No buyers pass needed!
What to expect: We are still very much a wholesale market - we come in early, we work hard, and we don't stay too late. Our cooler isn't the easiest place to shop, and our price list is so long it's almost unreadable without a horticulture degree. Our staff, however, is fabulous and will answer any questions you have. Consider us sort of a diamond in the rough. Or a special find that nobody knows about. All our hardgoods and decorator goods are priced on their shelves, and most of our plants are as well. (Though you may need to ask about a few.)
One further note: Again, we operate very much as a wholesale market. Please keep in mind that we don't do arrangements or design work. We don't plan events. We don't even hold hands much. We are happy to answer any questions you have, explain pricing and show you through the coolers - and can even do some more detailed planning with you for a consultation fee - but we don't do the work for you. We highly recommend that if you aren't sure of your skills that you hire an experienced designer. If you need a designer to assist, we will happily give you recommendations.
