Koffler Sales is giving back this holiday season. This week, through 12/7/15, we are donating $1 per order, per charity and our employees chose four charities to benefit this year! We are excited to donate a portion of sales to NAMI, Make-A-WishAmerica, Special Olympics and To Write Love On Her Arms.
NAMI, the National Alliance on Mental Illness, is the nation’s largest grass root organization dedicated to mental illness awareness, advocacy and support. They also provide free educational materials to everyone on their website. To learn more about this organization, click here.
Make-A-Wish is a unique organization that grants wishes to terminally and critically ill children. Whether it’s giving a little boy the opportunity to throw out the first pitch for his favorite baseball team or giving a little princess a chance to go to Disney World, Make-A-Wish works to make every sick child in their program feel special.

The Special Olympics gives people with intellectual disabilities the opportunity to participate in sports. The organization provides all Olympic-style training, equipment, and competitions and creates a safe environment where all participants can explore their possibilities.

With the holidays around the corner, we want to remind you to plan for an increase in activity around your home or business. With people coming and going, not to mention wet and slushy fall weather, accidents are more likely. We want to make sure that everyone has a happy and healthy holiday season, so we put together some Koffler tips!
The weather outside may not be so delightful – here in Chicago, the weather by December can be downright frightful! Prevent slips or falls as well as dirty slush from entering your home or office with an All-Weather Mat. An all-weather mat is specifically designed for wet conditions and freezing temperatures, and it will help provide a better surface when it is slick out.
It will also catch leaves before your guests or customers drag them inside with them. The holidays are very busy for everyone, so having to sweep less often by your entrance is a good thing!
Speaking of mats, did you know that Koffler Sales also offers commercial-grade Restaurant Mats? During the holiday season, most people cook large meals more often or are entertaining. Give your aching joints a break with a padded mat designed for standing for long periods of time. Your knees will thank you.
Steps can be very dangerous this time of year because surfaces are slippery, and with stairs there is less surface area to help someone catch their balance. We highly recommend installing Anti Slip Stair Nosing to any outdoor steps and entrance or foyer steps you may have.
Consider adding Reflective Tape to your holiday crafts. Here’s why: If you are in the Northern Hemisphere, it gets very dark during the winter months and nighttime starts as early as 4PM. Help motorists find your home or business and see the entrance with reflective tape. With several colors available on KofflerSales.com, the ideas are endless!
Here’s a few decor ideas:
Turkey design with reflective feathers on a pumpkin
Reflective snowflakes in your landscaping
Star of David on a potted plant
Champagne bottles with reflective labels for New Year’s
We wish everyone a safe Halloween weekend, and remember to “fall back” on Sunday for Daylight Savings Time!
Upon completion, the tile mechanic observes his work of art, as tile applications are most certainly attractive as well as functional. When used in a staircase, the potential of breakage and that of falls can be reduced by installing ceramic tile stair nosing. They help ensure the longevity of the tile workmanship, as well the safety of those upon the stairs.

Available in brass, anodized aluminum, and stainless steel, the ceramic tile stair nosing is a durable product designed for the life of the stair.
Heavy traffic areas in the office allow the practicality of the stair nosing to be appreciated, not to mention the added assurance of limiting the likelihood of falls associated with the sometimes slick surface of ceramic tile.
