Festoon means to decorate with flowers, lights, balloons, etc.  And you certainly will want to festoon your new Festool dealership for the grand opening.  (An easy error to make when typing fast or if you have an over-eager spell checker).

Below, festooned with lights.


I looked at the Festool website and they have nothing showing opportunities to open a dealership.  Generally you can meet someone from management at the trade shows. 

Their trade show schedule is shown here:  https://www.festo.com/us/en/e/about-festo/trade-shows-events-id_3739/

They have a  show in Boston early in February.  And several more later in the year.

Hi,

   You will need to contact Festool USA directly by phone.

   Festoon , Festool .................... probably a auto correct. I get that all the time if doing an internet search for Festool.

You should give Festool a call at 888 337-8600 and make an inquiry.

Good Luck!

I'm really confused.  Isn't Oak Grove a suburb of Minneapolis?  There are dozens of dealerships in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area including multiple Woodcraft, Rockler, and Acme Tools locations.

If your concern is that the nearest location to get service is in Indiana, that's literally the only location in the United States to have Festool tools serviced under warranty.  Its location in the Midwest is actually better than a coastal location as far as shipping times are concerned.
