The largest store to open in Duquesne since the May 2011 tornado celebrated today with a ribbon cutting and open house.
Schnelle Sheet Metal has a metal shop in the back but owner Brian Schnelle wants the location to show off the company's fire places. That's why it was important to build a store with a showroom.
"I've been selling fireplaces for three-four years and never had a showroom to show people, so we wanted to get closer into town where we are doing most of our work and open a business where they can come in and look at what we have to offer," says Schnelle.
Schnelle Sheet Metal has two other stores in Racine and Lamar.
