Ted Ryan opened The Stove Shop in 1977 (in an old dairy barn, nonetheless). He wanted to help local families stay warm, and he wanted them to be able to do so without burning through too much cash.
After college, his son Bill happily joined him on his mission to sell affordable and efficient wood and coal burning stoves. Nowadays, Bill’s the boss. He has proudly grown the business to include contemporary comforts such as gas burning fireplaces, inserts and logs as well as pellet units.
We can even handle an entire fireplace installation, seamlessly guiding you through the process from brainstorming to relaxing before a newly finished fireplace.
Our wide selection of high-quality American made products is ever-evolving, but our mission never wavers: We want to help families stay warm, save money, and enjoy the comfort of a beautiful hearth.
We pride ourselves on this mission, and feel that we’ve been fortunate enough to do so for so long because we view our customers as our partners.
As our partner, you’ll be treated with the courtesy, respect, and honesty that you deserve. We’re essentially putting fire into your home, albeit a highly controlled blaze, and we want you to feel safe under our professional staff’s care.
