“In preparing to open our new store in the borough of North Plainfield, we came to understand that residents of this area expect high quality products that deliver incredible value and beauty to maintain their historic homes,” said Carl Randazzo, Senior Vice President of Retail for The Tile Shop. “The community features a wide range of home styles, from Victorians built in the 1880s and 1890s, when North Plainfield was just a couple decades old, to contemporary, post-war ranch homes built in the 1950s.”“The incredibly hard-working and busy people in this part of New Jersey also expect retailers to make it as easy as possible to navigate their stores,” Randazzo added. “We make the process of shopping for stone and tile as easy as possible by anticipating the needs of our North Plainfield-area customers with the products, accessories and the know-how to help.” For North Plainfield-area homeowners who’d like to try the do-it-yourself route, The Tile Shop’s new New Jersey location will offer a free, hour-long “How to Tile” workshop every Saturday morning at 9:30 a.m. Participants are offered a hands-on opportunity to learn how to set ceramic tile, natural stone tile, and mosaic tile. The workshop covers everything that’s needed to tile a floor, wall, or backsplash with either tile or natural stone, as well as how to grout, cut tile, and seal and maintain tile and natural stone. The Tile Shop also provides informational videos on how to install tile on its web site, www.tileshop.com.
