Bridge Kitchenware

Having discovered that I work a block from Bridge Kitchenware, I've manged to treble the daily cost of leaving the office. That place has bloody everything.

They've also just opened a "discount" section upstairs. It looks like an old, dusty warehouse piled with old dusty stuff. There are tons of molds, pans, cake spatulas, and glasses, many at $1-$2 per. I happened to pick up a 14.3" Demeyere saucepan for $50.

My friend, you are in grave danger!! Watch your wallet in those parts. :biggrin:

Actually, responding to both Curlz and Tommy, I have always found their prices very reasonable... for what you get. And what you get, mostly, is high-end professional stuff. High-end restaurant stuff is not, as a rule of thumb, particularly inexpensive.

absolutely. and you can look through their bins and pick up utensils and stuff that will last a lifetime and cost a few bucks. it's not the prettiest place, nor should it be, but you can spend an entire day in there. i know because i have. :laugh:

Thanks for the "danger" alert.

Bridge is running a moving sale on all items from 6/1/05 through 6/7/05. 30% off suggested retail. I'm not sure that this offer is any bargain. What is the practical meaning of "suggested retail"?

"Suggested retail" means "the price at which the manufacturer suggests vendors sell the product."

Some products, for example, are deliberately priced high because high prices are associated with perceptions of high value. For this reason, manufacturers often will not give vendors "authorized retailer" status (which is necessary for the manufacturer's warranty to be valid) unless they sell at the suggested retail price.

What Bridge is saying is that they are selling at 30% below that price. It's unclear, however, whether this is always going to beat other prices. Amazon.com, for example, is offering some pieces at up to 48% off the suggested price.

Oooh, are they still nasty? I used to work around the corner at Broadway Diner and I too would spend quite a bit of down time there....

"moving sale?" Is the store moving?

Bridge is the greatest and expensive? I think not!!! I'm on the west coast and I've purchased quite a few items from them and even with shipping, prices are not outrageous.

As far as not being the prettiest place, I beg to differ. But I always have preferred the rustic look to prim neatness. To me, Bridge Kitchenware is a thing of beauty!

Which reminds me, someone borrowed my catalog and hasn't returned it...if whoever I loaned it to reads this, please return asap. :wink:
