California Closets Makes Room For Local Bank WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. -- California Closets was founded in 1978 by an 18-year-old college student who turned his innovative way of maximizing dorm-room space into a thriving business. Since then, the company has become one the fastest growing in the country and has set the standard for closet-organization systems.

The company's product innovation and custom approach continue to serve as industry benchmarks, nearly 40 years later. Bob Westenberg, owner of the California Closets Hawthorne franchise, understands what it takes to make happy, satisfied customers. "Everything we do at California Closets is rooted in our commitment to offering quality custom storage solutions," said Westenberg. "We believe our products give our customers more time and space to focus on what matters most."

California Closets offers a huge range of storage systems, from traditional reach-in closets to Italian melamine closets, to wood-tone walk-ins. Regardless of a space's size, California Closets has solutions to transform any home, dorm or suite. "We’re committed to listening to the needs of every customer, working with them hand in hand," said Westenberg. "We're providing something that is both practical and exciting."

Today, California Closets has 120 showrooms across North America, including the flagship showroom in Hawthorne. "The showroom is a great place to explore the product offerings and get an up-close look at the high-quality craftsmanship that goes into every storage system," said Westenberg. "The experienced showroom staff are always ready to listen to any needs the customers may have."

Westenberg and the California Closets Hawthorne franchise have been customers of The Westchester Bank for nearly ten years. Working with many businesses since their inception, The Westchester Bank continues to create partnerships in the community and has established itself as a trustworthy and reliable institution. “I wanted a bank that really understands my business and responds quickly to my needs," said Westenberg. "That’s why my bank is The Westchester Bank. They offer everything the big banks have but with a personal touch.”
