The renovated showroom is filled with free standing Wood Stoves an inserts, Pellet Stoves, and BBQ’s, all from top brand name suppliers, such as Pacific Energy, Enviro, Saber, Green Mountain Grills, and Black Olive Grill.

“My intention for this business is to provide the best service I can to my customers. I stand by my products and will make sure they are serviced all year round,” he said.

He comes into this new business venture with varied experience as a pastor, a former Goodyear worker, and as a wood carver.

After opening his stove showroom open, he will be setting up a gallery space in a separate room, and in addition to his carvings he will be showing the work of fellow artists as well.

The grand opening of Holden’s Hearth and Home takes place on Saturday, June 29 from 10am – 3pm. There will be a BBQ. Featuring meat from Milligan’s Meats, over the lunch hour.
