BROOKINGS HEARTH AND HOME STORE OPENS IN NEW DOWNTOWN LOCATION

By Ellen Babin

Pilot staff writer

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.

  • Europe rides rebound as global sell-off abates
    World stocks hit a nine-month low on Friday but oil and southern European bonds were off their week's worst levels, as investors began to dust themselves off after one of the most volatile spells in world markets in years. Bourses in London (.FTSE), Frankfurt (.GDAXI) and Paris (.FCHI) started the day up 1 to 1.5 percent and Athens (.ATG) rose 4.5 percent as Greek governments bonds steadied after their worst run since the height of the euro crisis in mid-2012. The possible return to recession in the euro zone, a floundering economy in Japan, slowdown in China and the Ebola virus outbreak have conspired to rattle investors already fretting about the end of years of U.S. It has been a fourth straight week of stock market falls in the U.S.
  • Goldman curbs bankers' compensation even as revenue surges
    Top Goldman Sachs Group Inc (GS.N) executives are determined to keep compensation costs under control. On Thursday, Goldman reported a 25 percent increase in quarterly revenue, but the money it set aside for compensation and benefits rose only 18 percent from the same period a year earlier. The amount of money it has set aside for compensation is more or less unchanged, as is the average compensation per employee, at around $320,000 for the first nine months of the year. Sources familiar with the matter inside Goldman Sachs described the restraint as a sign of the shifting mentality about bonuses at the bank: it wants to tightly control compensation, even if it has good quarters with big revenue gains.
  • Google's revenue falls short despite curbing price declines
    Google Inc's revenue fell short of Wall Street's expectations as growth in Internet advertising slowed in the most-recent quarter, offsetting a modest improvement in ad pricing, sending its shares down about 3 percent. Shares of Google fell 2.7 percent to $510.11 in extended trading on Thursday. Google posted $16.52 billion in revenue for the three months ended Sept. 30, compared to $13.75 billion in the year ago period. On Thursday, Google announced it had appointed Omid Kordestani its new chief business officer, replacing Nikesh Arora, who had departed a quarter ago to join Japan's Softbank Corp. The chief business officer is considered a key position, overseeing all the company's revenue-generating activities and serving as a liaison to investors and Wall Street.
