MANHASSET, NY – With the opening of Showcase Tile & Stone, parent company, Showcase Kitchens launches its first retail store – a boutique-style, service driven tile showroom serving the exclusive neighborhoods of the North Shore of Long Island and beyond. The timing of the opening was partially driven by national brand, Artistic Tile’s recent shuddering of its showroom up the road on Long Island’s famed Miracle Mile. Having obtained the rights to carry Artistic Tile’s sought-after collections, Showcase invigorated its product offerings as an authorized Artistic Tile Titanium Dealership.
Showcase Tile & Stone is located adjacent to the Showcase Kitchens showroom and headquarters on Long Island’s Gold Coast. It is the first retail venture for this business since fourth-generation owner John Starck Jr. moved the family business to Long Island in the late 1990s. Starck has operated Showcase Kitchens with a focus on designing high-end custom cabinetry for kitchens and baths. Riding on their success, the business expanded to include a fully operational bath-design showroom in 2013.
Susan Pauleen has been hired to manage the ST&S showroom.
