Who We Are

A Local Success Story from a Chapel Hill Native

Closets organize our lives. They store necessities like clothes and shoes, and preserve keepsakes like photos and heirlooms. At Carolina Closets Plus, we get that a closet is much more than a small, enclosed space. Our goal is to make your custom closet be the favorite place in your home. We want you to smile every time you enter your own personal boutique where you can shop for what you want wear each day, just like you would in your favorite store.


Mike Hoffer & and late business partner Craig Yarnell built a legacy of businesses that evolved into Carolina Closets Plus. This all started in 1985 when we opened “Chapel Hill’s favorite hardware store”, Yarnell-Hoffer Hardware. Since then, we’ve been serving our customer’s needs. In the early 90’s, we began to organize our customers lives and Carolina Closets Plus was born.

Mike grew up in Chapel Hill and graduated from UNC in 1981. He and Terri raised their three kids in Chapel Hill. Lindsey Hoffer, their oldest, is the production manager and manufacturers all the pieces that go into every job that we do. Terri helps Mike with sales calls and manages the company books. Mike believes in the family, small business concept. Carolina Closets Plus is the perfect niche company that has stood the test of time for over 30 years. This couldn’t have been possible without their strong faith in Jesus Christ.


We have developed a unique team approach which sets us apart from anyone else in the industry. Once we look at your project, our entire team from the owner of the company to the production manager to the installation manager evaluates every aspect of your job to offer you the best “detail perfection” solution possible. We believe there are a lot of details lost between the three separate functions of sales, production and installation that most companies use.

Our mission statement is to partner with our customers providing detail perfection from the initial meeting to the project completion. We would love to show you how we do this. Let’s get started today. See your design become a reality
