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)
