Tile Shop makes its entrance into New Mexico
The Tile Shop has made its New Mexico debut with the opening of a store in Albuquerque, located at 5000 Pan American Freeway.
The 22,000-sq-.ft. location features Tile Shop’s usual product offering of 5,000 tile and natural stone products, with a showroom that includes more than 50 bathroom and kitchen vignettes.
“There continues to be a strong desire to have hard surface flooring, particularly given the arid and temperate climate in this region," said SVP retail Carl Randazzo. "Tile and natural stone have grown in overwhelming popularity — not only are they cooling to the feet, but they are easy to maintain. We’re excited to join the Albuquerque community, introduce them to our incredible selection of high-quality, affordable tile and a ‘Beautiful Made Easy’ customer experience, while helping them achieve their tile project vision for their homes."
True to Tile Shop custom, the Albuquerque store will feature free DIY tiling workshops on Saturday mornings.
