In its 10 years of business in the area, Brookings Hearth and Home has outgrown three locations, opening its latest store – with 3,000 square feet of space – at 548 Chetco Ave., in Brookings.

Though the owners Bob, Jake and Silas Pieper bought the former gas station three years ago, state regulations, kept the Piepers from moving into the building right away.

"In the past months we have made major changes," said Bob Pieper. Those changes include paving, remodeling and doing a major facelift.

Future plans call for adding H and H coffee, a drive-thru coffee kiosk.

"Hearth is the big thing," according to Bob Pieper, who has been in the hearth business for 25 years. The store carries a variety of wood stoves, fireplaces and pellet stoves.

In addition, Brookings Hearth and Home sells spas, which they will install, and patio furniture.

The locally-owned, family-owned business also carries accessories for hearths and spas.

"We explain the differences in products so the consumer knows what they're buying and is not at the mercy of a builder," Bob Pieper said. "We're complete service here; if there ever is any problem, the customer is welcome to come back here."

Brookings Hearth and Home is open 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday and from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday. The phone number is (541) 412-1723.

The Fed began its two-day policy meeting on Tuesday, and while it has said it doesn't expect to raise rates until 2015, recent strong economic data has led Fed officials to acknowledge they may need to move sooner than they previously anticipated. "It’s a little surprising (investors) would go ahead and jump out in front of the Fed to drive the market up in that case, that’s a bit of a surprise there, and it could be that it all goes away tomorrow."
