Home of Economy Expands

Posted: Updated:

The expansion of Home of Economy in Williston is finally finished and today people had a chance to check out the store.

Today was the ribbon cutting to finalize the expansion of Home of Economy. Many customers new and old came to see what changes were made.

“They didn't really have a lot of room to work with.” says Jonathan Bean, who is a regular customer. “You know they have a lot of demand to meet. And I know this place gets jam packed so I think now. It's a whole lot better.”

The new expansion also opened up the opportunity for more jobs. Before expansion, the company would try to maintain a 15 person staff, but now they have around 65.

“We've gained a lot of space.” says Geoffrey Newport, who is assistant manager for Home of Economy. “We've been able to get everything out of all our warehouses and stuff. And everything is out on the floor. So everything is out. You know it just looks really good.”

One of the new areas is the boot department. It is 10 thousand square feet, which will benefit the customers and employees.

“I love everything about it.” says Elizabeth Douglas, who is the Boot Department Manager. “I like that it's big and it's got a lot of space. We got a lot of brands of boots that we never had before, which is really good for our consumers. There's not really anything I don't like about it.”

The other new department is the Carhartt area and since the expansion the company has become the Carhartt retailer in the United States.

“This is a nice place.” says Tamer Avci, who is a regular customer. The workers are very nice in here. Kind of one of the nicest in Williston. I would prefer to come here instead of going to another store in Williston actually.

Newport says dealing with the expansion has been an easy transition because of the work of his staff.

Newport added they have steel and soft toe boots and they will have boots for winter too.
