“This is the first showroom of its kind, and we’re excited to work with Andersen on this new concept,” 84 Lumber COO Frank Cicero said in a news release. “Andersen is a fantastic long-time partner of ours, and we truly believe in their products. We look forward to opening this location and hope it’s the first of many Andersen product showrooms for 84.”
At the showroom, 84 Lumber said customers will have the opportunity to speak with specialists on their specific project needs. Additionally, customers will be able to see a variety of window and door displays, including a large collection of contemporary-styled patio and big doors, modern-style windows with custom colors, Smart Home enabled products, and Andersen’s full portfolio of replacement products for home remodeling and renovation.
“For customers who desire the tactile experience of seeing products in person, this new showroom offers customers the opportunity to discover products of unmatched quality and design and fully immerse themselves in an experience that helps bring their dream projects to live,” vice president and general manager of Andersen’s residential and commercial pro division Grant Davis said. “The opening of this one-of-a-kind shopping experience marks a key milestone for both Andersen and 84 Lumber, a relationship spanning over 60 years.”
The showroom opening continues a pattern of expansion in 2020 and planned expansion into 2021. The dealer opened a truss plant in Mansfield, Ohio, in August 2020, a door and engineered wood products center in Greenville, S.C., in June 2020, and a door shop in Dallas in December 2020. The dealer plans to open an already constructed store in Dayton, Ohio and a component plant in Richmond, Va., is currently under construction. 84 Lumber also plans to expand into Stockton, Calif., Boise, Idaho, and Detroit, Mich., and open additional truss plants in central Florida and Charlotte, N.C.
Eighty Four, Pa.-based 84 Lumber was the fourth largest company on the 2020 ProSales 100. The dealer operates nearly 250 stores, component manufacturing plants, custom door shops, custom millwork shops, and engineered wood product centers in more than 30 states.
