TILE STORE OPENS ITS DOORS ON RAILROAD STREET

Excellent customer service and quality material will the standard at The Tile Store, which opened its Brookings store on Nov. 11.

Those standards are already in place in The Tile Store in Eugene, owned by Tim Parker, who is opening the second store at 624 Railroad St. in Brookings.

The new Brookings store will contain 3,000-square feet of a variety of tiles – from granite slabs to ceramic, stone and more.

In addition to Dal, America Olean, Florida and other widely-known brands, the store will carry an exotic array of other tiles, including glass block, metal tile and tile made of recycled material.

With more than 200 tiles on display, there will be affordable tile to fit all budgets, according to Bob Sample, regional manager.

The store also will offer 26 colors of grout.

Sample said the Brookings store will fill a niche because it's the only tile store within 100 miles of Brookings that offers such a large variety of material

He added that he has received a lot of help from Bob Rose of Brookings, who recently retired from years of tile work.

With its own truck and additional stock in Eugene, there will be very little wait if material needed is not in the Brookings store.

Workers, including journeyman installer Prentiss Love, are currently creating "vignettes," displays of tile used in kitchens, bathrooms floors and other locations.

In addition to selling tile, the company will install it, as well as give estimates, help with in-home design and give ideas and estimates based on plans.

The company will work with homeowners or contractors.

The company will even install radiant floor tiles – tiles warmed from underneath, as well as complicated tile designs called medallions.

The store hours will be from 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday and from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday.

The phone number is (877) TILE-111 (845-3111)

  • 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.
