[Kansas City, MO] – Function Junction, a locally owned and operated kitchen and housewares retailer located on the 3rd floor of Crown Center Shops, has begun drastically slashing prices to reduce inventory before they move to their new location on the 2nd floor of the shopping center. Every item in the store is now on sale with savings ranging from 10% to 70% off. “We will be keeping items fresh and discounting new items weekly,” explains co-owner, Mary Merola.

Current discounts include 10% - 15% off cookbooks, 10% - 50% off kitchen tools, 20% - 50% off cookware, barbeque tools, and kids items, 20% - 70% off bakeware, barware, kitchen linens, dinner and flatware, and kitchen accessories. Glassware is currently 30% - 70% off, kitchen electrics are 20% off, and storage and organizational tools are 30% off.

Construction of the new Function Junction space has begun, with April 2014 slated for the opening of the expanded location. This move will make it possible for Function Junction to increase its product offering by 25%; including a line of cooking tools for children, as well as exclusive tools for the culinary enthusiast. Function Junction will also be enhancing the Culinary Studio where product demonstrations and culinary events are held.

Currently in their 37th year of business, co-owners Mary Merola and Rebecca Wilkie are excited about the opportunity this move presents. Wilkie states, “We invite everyone to visit our current location to take advantage of these amazing discounts. Come back often because we will be changing the store as we move product, you never know what amazing tool you will find!” Merola adds, “We are very excited about the expanded products we will be bringing to the new location. Until the new location opens, we will be offering unprecedented discounts on the current inventory. These deals are worth a trip, or two, into Crown Center.”

Function Junction’s business hours are 10am–6pm Monday–Wednesday, 10am–9pm Thursday–Saturday, and Sunday 11am–6pm. Function Junction is currently located on the 3rd floor of Crown Center Shops near the south escalator. Discounts are available in-store only.
