November 14, 2006 11:00 pm

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)

  • Putin jeopardizes Russian firms’ access to $600 billion
    Escalating European Union and U.S. sanctions jeopardize access to funding for Russian companies, threatening to cut them off from international capital markets that have provided at least $600 billion in debt and equity financing since the country emerged from its 1998 default.
  • Amazon to invest $2 billion more in India
    Amazon.com Inc (AMZN.O) on Wednesday said it will invest a further $2 billion in India just a day after the country's largest e-tailer Flipkart attracted $1 billion of fresh funds, raising the stakes in a nascent but fast-growing e-commerce sector. Amazon, which opened its Indian website in June last year, has drawn up the battle lines by slashing prices, launching same-day delivery, adding new product categories and embarking on a high-voltage advertisement campaign. Amazon and Flipkart are joined in India's $13 billion e-commerce sector by marketplace Snapdeal, fashion e-tailer Jabong, and U.S. auctioneer eBay Inc (EBAY.O). "With this additional investment of $2 billion, our team can continue to think big, innovate, and raise the bar for customers in India," Chief Executive Jeff Bezos said in a statement.
  • U.S. economy seen regaining muscle in second quarter
    U.S. economic growth likely regained steam in the second quarter as activity picked up broadly, which would bolster expectations for a stronger performance in the last six months of the year. Gross domestic product likely grew at a 3.0 percent annual rate after shrinking at a 2.9 percent pace in the first quarter, according to a Reuters survey of economists. "I don't think the contraction we saw in the first quarter is reflective of what's truly going on in the economy," said Gus Faucher, senior economist at PNC Financial Services Group in Pittsburgh. Earlier in the second quarter, growth estimates were as high as 4 percent, but they were cut as trade, consumer spending and business investment rebounded from the winter slump by less than expected.
