DirectBuy will host a grand opening for its showroom on June 22 26842 I-45 N., Oak Ridge North. The business had its soft opening on Feb. 23. to help Houston residents who were affected by Harvey to refurnish their homes. Store Manager Arlee Elshimi said she has now finished the showroom, including the installation of a new cafe where DirectBuy visitors can enjoy complimentary hot and cold beverages while browsing the showroom and catalogs.
Oak Ridge North Mayor Jim Kuykendall said the city is excited to have a new business added to the community.
"The City of Oak Ridge North is thrilled about the opportunities DirectBuy brings to our community," Kuykendall said. "The store offers unparalleled savings on home products and has charitable programs which have already given back tremendously to the community after Hurricane Harvey. We are proud to have them in our city."
The membership program at DirectBuy allows customers to purchase furniture, appliances and electronics as well as sports and recreation equipment, jewelry and children’s items directly from the manufacturer. With design centers in British Columbia, Alberta and Ontario, this is the company’s first storefront in the United States. 346-241-0135. www.directbuy.com
