Looking to install a stone patio out back or maybe a large grill island just off the house? How about a cozy fireplace to warm up in front of during the winter months?
If any of these scenarios fit the bill, then you're going to want to check out the new Fireplace & Stone Center at 850 S.E. Alice's Road in Waukee.
The retailer recently moved from its previous location on 121st Street in Urbandale to the new location in Waukee. The store carries a little bit of everything from fireplaces and grills to outdoor pavers, pergolas and even fire pits.
Jason Cox, branch manager of the Fireplace & Stone Center, said the move has given the retailer more space to display products and will undoubtedly give shoppers a better idea of how a product will look in their own home.
"The additional space is awesome," said Cox. "Our showroom is so much bigger. It was 4,500 square feet and this is 6,500 square feet. We have 40 displays so you can actually see things working."
Fireplace & Stone Center, according to Cox, is family-owned and based out of Omaha, Neb. The company has been in business for more than 80 years and employs 50 people company-wide.
