Summer started early this year with the hot weather, but summer sales are already in full swing as well at Rui Construction Supply Inc.

Rui Construction featured a clearance sale on cabinets in May and June, during which cabinets were on sale starting from $50 per linear foot. For all of July, customers will still be able to take advantage of this limited-time offer, according to sales manager John Xie.

“With this current clearance sales promotion, we don’t have any other promotion available, since it’s a good deal,” he confirmed. “We also have granites that are $99 per piece for a 9-foot slab granite. These are the two main promotions that we’re going to be featuring throughout the summer.”

Summertime also usually means the return of college students on summer breaks, and home projects and renovations are extremely popular.

“Because a lot of college students are coming home from school, homeowners are coming in to get their houses ready,” Xie said. “The summer is also a period of time after tax refunds, so customers can continue their renovations.”

Family vacations also are a traditional summer activity, and Rui often works on its customers’ homes even while clients are on vacation. Xie attributes this to the company’s great reputation and the trustworthy relationships the company has with its customers.

“We see a lot of cases where families plan vacations and they get their houses renovated during their vacation time,” he said. “Sometimes, customers give their keys to us, we clean everything when we’re finished and we hold onto their keys until they come back. We collaborate with them while they’re on their trip; we take pictures and send it to them. By the time they come back, they see a brand-new kitchen.”

Xie acknowledges that summer always is a busy time for the construction industry, because renovations usually slow down in the fall and winter months.

“Once you hit Thanksgiving, people get into the holiday mode,” he said. “They’re more into gift-giving and celebrating with their families, not focusing on renovation projects. The busiest time for us is now, with all the summer holidays coming up, including Four th of July and eventually Labor Day.”
