Browne’s Home Center, Friday Harbor, Wa., unveiled its major remodeling during a VIP Night and ribbon cutting ceremony on Sept. 15, followed the next day with a community-friendly event that attracted over 500 customers and neighbors.
Parent TAL Building Centers renovated the existing space, which included combining several buildings into one cohesive space, which enlarged the retail area from 14,000 sq. ft. to 28,450 ft. Within the revamped space, customers can expect such modern amenities as a dedicated design center, full-service paint center, specialized contractor sales desk with a unique art installation, and for the retail customer, an efficient line queue for checkout.
With the larger footprint, the core categories of paint, electrical, plumbing, hand and power tools, and lawn & garden were bolstered with enhanced offerings. Browne’s also added more home goods, clothing, pet supplies, RV and marine.
The location also boasts a 27,000 sq. ft. all-organic garden center.
