Austin, Texas – January 2, 2014 Construction work was recently completed in Oklahoma City on a new warehouse for Pacific Shore Stones. The purpose built facility comprises 29,000 sq ft in total, with 1,500 sq ft of office space and 27,500 sq ft of warehouse space. After five years at their previous location, the new building represents a significant increase in space allowing for an inventory of about 3,000 slabs indoors. There is also another 10,000 sq ft area for outdoor storage.
The new showroom contains a kitchen display designed to inspire customers. The expansion allows for a larger selection of exotic stones and core colors. The core colors are being delivered in container loads of entire blocks, enabling an inventory of eight or nine bundles of matching colors for many of the most popular colors, such as Santa Cecilia, Napoli and Ubatuba. Caesarstone will be offered as part of the extensive inventory changes too.
The new location is not only larger but also much brighter than the previous facility, and is situated in north Oklahoma City just two blocks away from the previous location. Operating Partner Vinny Tavares said: “We are excited to be able to offer more choice and a better selection experience for customers in Oklahoma City. We welcome both existing and new clients to stop by and see the improvements. We chose to build on this plot just two blocks away from our old location since we didn’t want our clients to be inconvenienced by the move and we enjoy doing business in this area of town.”
Oklahoma City manager Jasmine Boyles said she and her team are excited about the relocation and are looking forward to being able to offer increased inventory, to better serve their customers and provide more choice.
The new location is at 149 NE 138th Street, Oklahoma City, OK 73013.
