Closet Storage Organizers (CSO) has been helping Virginians simplify their lives and get organized for many years. CEO Rick Gumpert founded the company in 1988 after a successful career at a division of Herman Miller, Inc., a leading global designer of furniture and work spaces. An art major in college and a builder by avocation, he has been a member of the Roanoke Regional Home Builders Association since 1989 and on its Board of Directors for 8 years. For the past 25 years, he has helped organize the Association's Spring and Fall Home Shows.

CSO not only works with a wide variety of individual clients but is the preferred choice of top local builders who understand that beautifully organized closets and garages add sales appeal and value to the homes they are selling.

In addition to Rick, who still designs client installations himself, the CSO staff consists of experienced professional designer/sales associates, installation coordinators, fabricators, installers and office support people.

Not only will a CSO-designed closet or garage system fit your particular space, needs and budget, it will be completed with as little interruption of your life as possible. All designer/sales associates are scrupulous about keeping their appointments on time. And use an extraordinary computer-design tool that allows you to see and select your options so you know exactly what you are getting before you give CSO the go-ahead.

For more information or to set up an appointment for your free design consultation at your home, just call (540) 389-8570. You can also visit their website at

We also invite you to stop in their showroom and office at 212 Apperson Drive, Salem VA. Once there, you can see the wide variety of storage gadgets and material choices they offer. Rick and his team look forward to helping you get organized and simplify your life -- at least when it comes to your closet or home’s storage spaces in whatever way they can!
