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.

  • Asian stocks slip, euro hits one-year low on ECB uncertainty
    MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan lost 0.4 percent after managing to carve out gains on the previous day. Tokyo's Nikkei (.N225) bucked the trend and rose 1.2 percent, with a planned cabinet reshuffle by Prime Minister Shinzo Abe helping fuel reform hopes. In currencies, the dollar, boosted by the flagging euro and gains in Tokyo shares that dented the appeal of the safe-haven yen, rose to a seven-month high of 104.76 yen (JPY=). The market is also keeping an eye on the rise in equities," said Shinichiro Kadota, chief Japan FX strategist at Barclays Bank in Tokyo.
  • China anti-trust probes not protectionist, regulator says
    China's latest antitrust probes, which have hit firms such as Microsoft (MSFT.O) and Volkswagen AG (VOWG_p.DE), are not protectionist tools that favor domestic firms, an official of the country's price regulator told the official China Daily. In an interview, Xu Kunlin, director general of price supervision and the anti-monopoly bureau at the National Development Reform Commission, reiterated that the agency was giving equal treatment to local and foreign companies. The probes, which have scrutinized at least 30 foreign firms so far as China seeks to enforce a 2008 anti-monopoly law, have worried U.S. "Such accusations are groundless and baseless," the China Daily quoted Xu as saying.
  • China won't force foreign auto parts makers to form local JVs: EU trade body
    The European trade body in China said Beijing is not planning to force foreign auto parts suppliers operating in the country to form local joint ventures, dismissing a report last week that had stirred concern among European firms. Germany's Stuttgarter Zeitung newspaper reported that China had urged three German car parts suppliers to form partnerships with local rivals, citing the head of German parts supplier ElringKlinger AG (ZILGn.DE). "The European Chamber is confident that these rumors are unfounded and that the Chinese government has no intention to require the formation of joint ventures in the sector," the European Union Chamber of Commerce in China said in a statement on its website dated Aug. 29. The European Chamber said the JV rumors could be the result of a misunderstanding stemming from existing restrictions dating from 2011 for suppliers in the e-vehicle segment.
