Pacific Shore Stones opened its newest location in September in Charleston, SC. Following several months of talks with World Stone Distributors, Pacific Shore Stones acquired the location along with all assets and staff, officially taking ownership on September 13th.
Operating Partner Vinny Tavares said, “We’re very excited about the opportunity this acquisition presents. It fits perfectly with our strategy of opening in second tier cities; the population of greater Charleston is around 800,000. On top of that, it’s a port city which allows us to use it as a hub for the south east, servicing our existing location in Birmingham, AL but also opening up our distribution capabilities to North and South Carolina, Georgia, northern Florida, and southern Alabama.”
The 43,000 square foot warehouse will house a full selection of inventory from Pacific Shore Stones. The spacious facility allows for a large selection of exotics, such as onyx and quartzite, in addition to granite, marble, soapstone, travertine and limestone. Pacific Shore Stones will be quadrupling the amount of inventory that World Stone Distributors offered, meaning a much wider selection of slabs for customers to choose from.
