Simpsonville, South Carolina
Specialty LBM Holdings of South Carolina acquires Palmetto Tile and Stone; re-works DECKSTORE’s overall look and website.
Specialty LBM holdings and our subsidiaries including DECKSTORE of SC, are committed to competitive growth and excellence in the building materials industry and so it is with great pleasure to announce the acquisition of The Palmetto Tile and Stone Company and the initiative to revitalize the look of DECKSTORE. Previously known as “Floored” on Haywood Rd, and a leader in product selection in the local Greenville market, Palmetto Tile offers a full line of ceramic, porcelain, natural stone, mosaic, and other tile products from floor to finish. Product lines include all brands of flat lay products and mosaics. Additionally, Palmetto will begin to offer customers the full system with the addition of bonding materials and underlayment materials to round out its offerings.
In the coming weeks, The Palmetto Tile and Stone Company will undergo a facility move and realignment of product categories and choices, as well as a full overhaul of ordering systems and inventory control. Customers shall enjoy a more streamlined approach to purchasing from Palmetto Tile. The company will be combined within the retail space located with DECKSTORE on East Standing Springs Rd in Simpsonville, and many of the Palmetto Tile products will be featured on the soon to be released Deckstoresc.com eCommerce website. Shoppers will enjoy a clean, well designed online experience and will be able to will-call or have shipped, orders placed on the online system. Current customers with open accounts at DECKSTORE will be able to extend purchases of Palmetto Tile products under the same accounts giving a greater ease in purchasing for our remodeling and tradesman customers. With an all new management and sales team for Palmetto Tile, customers will enjoy changes and a more customer driven performance, while maintaining the vast and eclectic selection previously featured by Palmetto Tile and Stone.
At the same time, DECKSTORE is making changes to its facility including a general clean-up, removal of the obstructive fence around the property, and additions of more products including storage buildings, swing-sets, and outdoor structures. The goal is to make a more enjoyable complete purchasing atmosphere for our homeowner customers, as well as our tradesman customers. The new Deckstoresc.com website is due to launch by year end with a complete product offering including nationwide shipping on most products. We are truly excited about this acquisition and extension of DECKSTORE of SC.
