Austin, Texas – August 21, 2014 Representatives with Pacific Shore Stones today announced that it is expanding to open its 14th location, in Springdale, AR. Pacific Shore Stones is in the process of building a brand new custom-designed warehouse and showroom in Springdale, and will open initially in a temporary space to begin serving the area until the new building is complete.
Pacific Shore Stones Operating Partner Marco Pereira said: “We’ve experienced great success in Arkansas already through our location in Little Rock, which opened in 2010. We wanted to take the opportunity to increase the customer base we can serve and also our distribution channels in the region by adding this location in Springdale.” Operating Partner Vinny Tavares added: “The central position of this new location allows us to reach markets further to the north, including Missouri. We are excited to be able to increase our distribution reach to this area.”
The temporary warehouse will house a full selection of inventory from Pacific Shore Stones. The facility will carry a selection of exotics, such as onyx and quartzite, in addition to granite, marble, soapstone, travertine and limestone. The new warehouse, which is scheduled to open in November 2014, will be located approximately 100 yards away.
The Springdale location team will be led by Jonathan Bussell, who brings a wealth of experience in the stone industry spanning 15 years. As well as sales experience, Jonathan has also worked for tools and equipment suppliers in the industry, giving him a rounded knowledge of many aspects of the business.
The opening of the new Springdale location is in line with the continuing expansion plans for Pacific Shore Stones in coming years.
