Don-Janais Designer Showroom To Close After 28 Years

San Diego, California – August 26, 2009 — Don-Janais Designer Showroom is going out of business and will soon close its doors forever. Founded in 1981 by Donna Vinton and Jan Toft, Don-Janais has been a destination for interior designers looking for the finest home furnishings for their clients. Offering products from such well-known manufacturers as Maitland Smith, Marge Carson, Theodore Alexander, Sherrill, Ferguson Copeland, Barcalounger, Bernhardt, and many others. They also offer thousands of one-of-a-kind fine handmade oriental rugs.

“The Don-Janais going-out-of-business total liquidation will begin on August 27th,” said Donna Vinton co-owner of Don-Janais with partner Jan Toft. This magnificent showroom located in the designer district has never before been open to the general public. Business has been conducted exclusively with interior designers and their clients. Now that the decision to close has been made the general public will have a unique opportunity to see and buy the finest quality home furnishings for the first time, at discounts below wholesale. Vinton went on to say, “We have reductions of up to 75% on every item in the store. Over $2 million of home furnishings and handmade rugs will be sold as quickly as possible at the lowest prices in the area.” Vinton continues, “Every item in the multi-million dollar inventory will be sold, regardless of cost…This is a wall-to-wall total liquidation.”

The decision to close the showroom was made by Vinton, who has revealed plans for the closing event. In announcing the closing, Vinton stated, “The decision to close has been a difficult one. Don-Janais, Donna and her husband, Warren Vinton, former head football Coach at Helix High School have been a part of the history in San Diego most of their lives. “There comes a time to move on, and we will miss the relationships we have built over the years.”

According to Vinton, the total liquidation event will allow them a special opportunity to serve area residents and to say thanks for the memories by offering local residents the lowest prices ever. Vinton said, “We have been so gratified by the wonderful support our customers have given us over these many years. That’s why we’ve decided to have a major going-out-of-business total liquidation and offer price reductions that do not honor manufacturer’s minimum pricing policies. This event will give the area residents the opportunity to own fine home furnishings and handmade oriental rugs at once-in-a-lifetime savings, and it will be our way of saying, ‘thanks for your support over the years’.”


The Don-Janais going-out-of-business total liquidation will begin on Thursday, August 27th, and will continue until all merchandise is sold regardless of cost. Advisors to the event will be West Coast based Deere Park & Associates, one of the leading consultants to the furniture industry. According to Donna Vinton, “Deere Park & Associates West was clearly the best furniture consultant in terms of reliability, integrity, professionalism, resources, and proven success. It is very important to us to maintain the standards and reputation we’ve earned over the past 28 years.”
