Locals trust the region’s largest window and door retail outlet for top-notch products and same-day availability

Nestled in the heart of Kitchener, Ontario, stands a historic industrial building transformed into one of the region’s largest window and door retail outlets. With over two decades in business, Dan’s Discount Windows & Doors is a name that locals trust.

Celebrating over 23 years in business and over 15 years at their current location at 199 Victoria Street, the store boasts an expansive 12,000-square-foot showroom showcasing an array of products. 

The region’s catchiest jingle emphasizes its origins as an “old warehouse turned into a store,” which rings true to its roots. 

“We’re an old warehouse with one of the region’s oldest working freight elevators, servicing three floors for a total of 45,000 square feet of inventory and product,” remarked Chris Morrissette, Dan’s Discount Windows and Doors CEO. “We have the largest display of windows and doors in the entire region.”

However, what truly sets them apart from competitors is their immediate availability of products. While most window and door retailers in Ontario act as catalogue houses, offering custom installations after weeks of waiting, Dan’s Discount allows customers to walk in, purchase a product, and walk out with it the same day.

“We offer custom installations too. But we also have products you can buy and take home the same day.”

Their expansive product range caters to diverse needs. From single sliders to double sliders, casement windows to decorative doors, the store continually expands its offerings to meet market demands. 

“We recently started stocking black decorative doors. We always strive to understand what our customers need,” Morrisette commented.

Founded by Dan Kuepfer in 2000 after recognizing the potential of the windows and doors market, the business has come a long way from its humble beginnings. Today, it stands as a testament to his vision and the hard work of those who followed in his footsteps.

Despite the “discount” in their name, the quality of products offered is top-notch. Partnerships with vendors like Dorplex, Weather Seal, Vinylguard, MDL Doors and Standard Doors ensure customers receive the best value for their money.

Moreover, homeowners can benefit from government rebates on certain purchases, potentially earning up to a $5,000 rebate on upgrades. The store also offers flexible financing solutions, accommodating both store purchases and custom installations.

As winter approaches, Morrisette emphasizes the importance of timely window replacements. “Now’s a good time. We offer high-end products at truly discounted rates, ensuring residents stay warm and comfortable.”

Continually evolving while honouring its roots, Dan’s Discount Windows & Doors stands as a testament to dedicated service and quality offerings in Kitchener.
