Did a kitchen renovation a couple of years ago and had a direct buy membership. Membership fees can be a bit expensive per year but so worth it if you plan on purchasing a number of home items (furniture, blinds, appliances, etc.) and definitely a must when renovating. It's best to go there with a good idea of what you want as there is lots to choose from and it can take awhile to make a decision. Met with Gary to design the kitchen, he was fast, efficient and cost effective. It was about $600 for the kitchen plans and you need to provide very accurate measurements but well worth it and included changes. Always hire a kitchen designer before renovating your kitchen! Ordered a beautiful new kitchen, pantry, granite countertop, sink and door knobs. The cabinets and sink came slightly faster than what they predicted. Delivery was a mixup and the only real issue we had. A couple of the cabinets came slightly damaged but our contractor was able to fix them easily and the kitchen manufacturer through Direct Buy covered the cost of the repairs. The kitchen is so much more enjoyable, larger feeling, beautiful and with better use of space. I even have a few drawers that are hardly filled! I've used my membership for other things, but this was by far the best use of it. I saved so much money and got what I wanted.
