Company History

The current owner, Lester Bowman, started the business in 1977. He needed a wood stove for his house, so he responded to an ad in the newspaper looking for Fisher Stove dealers. He purchased 6 to become a dealer. He put one in his house for heat and soon sold the rest. The business grew from there. In 1981 he purchased the current location. Patio furniture was soon added to the product mix to stay busy in the spring and summer.

In March 2011, the new expanded and renovated showroom opened. We expanded because more space was needed for patio furniture and an elevator was needed to make all three floors accessible. A two-story addition, plus a basement for storage, was added to the existing 3-story showroom. This almost doubled the square footage to approximately 15,000 square feet. The rest of the existing store was also renovated.

Now half our business is stoves & fireplaces and the other half is outdoor furnishings and accessories.

Facilities & Showroom

Our recently expanded and renovated showroom in Ephrata, PA has 3 floors and is approximately 15,000 square feet. The 3 floors are accessible by an elevator. The showroom has great curb appeal. The outside front of the store is very unique and inviting, with a prominent new main entrance. There is a large two story, stone, wood-burning fireplace with a gas log set at the front entrance. Behind the fireplace is an inviting sales/service counter.

Hearth products are all organized by product type and fuel type. All our direct-vent gas fireplace and wood fireplace displays have finished stone veneers or mantels. All the gas fireplaces are burning displays. The fireplace inserts are all displayed in the same area on beautiful 2-tier stone veneer walls. All the gas models are burning displays so customers can see the fire.

Most of our freestanding stoves are displayed on raised platforms so the customers can view them easier. All 10 of our freestanding gas stoves are burning displays.

We converted our third level to be a clearance area. It’s full of closeout stoves and fireplaces, as well as patio furniture and accessories.
