Tepperman’s Opens 44,000 sq’ Showroom in St. Catherines

Tepperman’s, one of Canada’s largest family-owned home furnishing retailers founded in 1925 has opened a new location at 399 Louth Street in St. Catharines, Ontario.

“We are honored to bring Tepperman’s to St. Catharines,” said Andrew Tepperman, the President and third generation Tepperman to run the family business. This expansion was driven by the city’s vibrant community, economic growth, and shared values of sustainability and family. “Not only is it the right location for business; it’s about embedding ourselves within the fabric of the community and contributing to its growth and vibrancy,” said Tepperman.

The store, equipped with a 44,000 square-foot showroom with an additional 19,000 square feet of warehousing, will employ about 50 people and will feature complete lifestyle vignettes, bright LED and natural lighting, defined aisle ways for easy navigation, a designated kid’s area, and a café area offering customers free coffee and popcorn.

Aligned with Tepperman’s commitment to sustainability, the new store will feature a natural 60 square-foot indoor garden, equipped with a variety of air-purifying tropical plants and lit with grow lights. The installation of 94 solar panels will offset a portion of the store’s total energy consumption. EV charging stations will also be available.

In celebration of the new store opening, and in line with Tepperman’s long-standing tradition of supporting the communities where they operate, a charitable donation totaling $25,000 will be awarded to five local charities, selected by the public through an online voting process. This initiative underscores Tepperman’s dedication to making a positive impact in the St. Catharines community.

Highlighting the importance of family and community, three generations of the Tepperman family attended the ribbon-cutting ceremony that opened the store last month. They were joined a team of Tepperman’s executives, Mayor Matt Siscoe, city councillors, and members of the Greater Niagara Chamber of Commerce, showcasing the collaborative spirit and mutual commitment between the business and the city of St. Catharines.
