Maloney Tile Showroom

Well i finally bit the bullet and signed on a building in Farmington Hills , Mi. and will be opening a showroom that will be by appointment only for the time being. It is approx 1500 sq ft with just over 300 sq ft of showroom area and right now the rest is warehouse. Im going to frame out an office/conference area with refreshment area as well. Going to set up in the new shop area.
Will be putting in installation displays, floor heat displays, niches, waterproofing etc. as well as a small selsction of tile and slab.
The shop is in a very big business area with freeways 1/4 mile away and my main (four) supply houses only 1 mile away and is located across the street from a granite supply shop.
Keeping my fingers crossed.

I'm an apocaloptimist. I'm well aware that everything is going to hell - but I'm convinced it's going to be okay.

Steve,

Congratulations and the very best. I'm sure it'll work out for you. I hope to be able to stop by once I know where you are exactly. I'm betting you're at Industrial Park Dr., just a guess.

Don't know if that warrants congratulations or condolences, Steve, but I'm impressed.
