The Bountiful Interiors family of brands has announced the acquisition of a 16,000 square foot building located at the corner of U.S. Route 50 and Goldsborough Street in Easton, just across from The Country School. The property will serve as the new home of Bountiful Home, Bountiful Flooring, and Jamie Merida Interiors. Renovations are well underway and the new location is on track to open in late summer.
“We are thrilled to have found the perfect location at the Gateway to Easton,” said Jamie Merida, owner of Bountiful. “This year is our twentieth anniversary, so we have a lot to celebrate! It was the right time for us to buy a property that is large enough to house the entire company under one roof.”
Once renovations are complete, the building will feature an open floor plan with distinct areas for each part of the business. There will be a large furniture showroom for Bountiful Home, which will include much-needed space to expand the store’s selection of home accents and gifts. Bountiful Flooring will have an adjoining showroom that will allow for an expanded selection of flooring, carpet, stone and tile, and Hunter Douglas window treatments.
There are also plans to build a new mezzanine that overlooks the furniture showroom within the first year. The mezzanine will house the Jamie Merida Interiors design studio.“We’re fortunate that our interior design services continue to grow like wildfire,” said Merida. “We’re currently looking to hire new designers and need much more space for the studio. Adding the second level will really help us maximize the building’s potential.”
In addition to housing the Bountiful brands, the property will be home to Turnbridge Talbot, a new bakery and café by owners Rob Griffith and Chef Steve Konopelski. Konopelski is a pastry chef who has earned a strong local following through his flagship bakery Turnbridge Point in Denton and his many appearances on Food Network. Turnbridge Talbot will offer daily selections of pastries, breads, and cakes, as well as grab-and-go gourmet sandwiches and salads. The café will provide seating and free WiFi. Guests will also have a view of the cake decorating room where Konopelski will produce all of his couture wedding cakes.
“We’ve had customers asking for an Easton location for a long time,” said Konopelski. “We’re thrilled we can tell them that it’s finally happening!” Konopelski said the new location will not affect Turnbridge Point in Denton. “We will continue to offer all the same treats and events at our original location,” said Konopelski.
Merida said incorporating Turnbridge Talbot into the new building made a lot of sense for both businesses. “We love that our customers will be able to grab a coffee and a treat while they shop. And between interior design and cake design, there’s going to be so much creativity happening under one roof!”
Bountiful will continue to operate at its current locations in the Talbot Towne Shopping Center until the new building opens later this summer. Project updates and photos will be shared on Bountiful’s social media accounts and its website, JamieMerida.com.
