HUNTSVILLE - Bigger is better.
Nancy Nickason of the Huntsville Fireplace King stands in the entrance to the company’s new home at 3 Cairns Drive. The move to the new digs happened in late September.
That’s the idea the owners and employees at the Fireplace King had when they moved into their new home at 3 Cairns Drive in Huntsville. With a bigger showroom, bigger parking space, and a bigger warehouse, it’s everything the staff could’ve wanted, according to office manager Nancy Nickason.
“We wanted to upgrade the showroom, as we needed more space to show more product. We wanted to show it better than we showed it at the old place.”
The Huntsville Fireplace King outlet was originally located on Bickley Country Drive of 4,500 square feet in space for around 20 years, before the company’s owners decided two years ago to make their big move.
Both a want and a need were presented for a larger floor space to accommodate more products for their valued customers, according to Nickason. They finally made the jump at the end of September to almost double their previous floor space, to 8,000 square feet.
Besides the bigger showroom, they were desperate for more parking space and a larger warehouse. “We were running out of space. The warehouse space was really tight. Parking was a mess,” said Nickason.
Because of their new and larger location, the possibility of hiring more help might even be in their future. “We’re the same so far, but we may have to increase this year. We’ll just see how things go.”
Nickason said that the showroom turned out to be better than expected. “I think it turned out really well.”
The new showroom makes customers feel right at home, greeting you with a huge fireplace when you walk in and many more beautiful ones in the room. “I think they can see and they can visualize what the fireplace is going to look like in their house, better than we were able to before. They can come in here and see something finished,” said Nickason.
The new Fireplace King location is now open and ready for business. You can find more information at www.fireplaceking.com or by visiting their new location.
