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.

  • Apple shares reach 2014 highs, Asian stocks lag
    Shares in tech heavyweights Apple and Facebook held hefty after-hours gains on Thursday as their results handily outpaced Wall Street expectations, though Asian markets managed only a mumbled cheer on the news. South Korea's Samsung Electronics did gain 0.6 percent but the main KOSPI index dipped a fraction. Markets were mixed across the region with Japan's Nikkei off 0.6 percent but Singapore up 0.5 percent. MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan edged ahead by 0.1 percent.
  • Apple expands buybacks by $30 billion, OKs 7-for-1 stock split
    Apple Inc has approved another $30 billion in share buybacks till the end of 2015 and authorized a rarely seen seven-for-one stock split, addressing calls to share more of its cash hoard while broadening the stock's appeal to individual investors. Activist investor Carl Icahn, who had famously called on the iPhone maker to boost its buyback program, tweeted his approval of the move on Wednesday. On Wednesday, Apple reported sales of 43.7 million iPhones in the quarter ended March, far outpacing the roughly 38 million that Wall Street had predicted. But whether Apple can again produce a revolutionary new product remains the central question in investors' and Silicon Valley executives' minds.
  • Buffett: moving oil by rail safely major industry concern
    Warren Buffett, chairman of conglomerate Berkshire Hathaway, said on Wednesday that safety is a major priority for the rail industry, after a recent spate of accidents raised concerns about how to transport oil safely. He added that the delay in the construction of the Keystone pipeline was unlikely to prompt additional purchases of tank cars at Berkshire railroad unit BNSF. Buffett also said, in an interview with CNBC the same day, that he thinks Coca-Cola's equity compensation plan was excessive, but that Berkshire Hathaway abstained in a shareholders vote. Earlier on Wednesday, Coca-Cola said 83 percent of shareholders approved the plan.
