Monday afternoon I took a stroll down the block to check out the new location of Root River Appliances and Floor Coverings.  Owners Jeff and  Roxie Knies didn't have far to move far.  In fact, they moved across the street and down the block into the former Chic's Pizza in downtown Preston.  Their new location is freshly painted and spruced up, offering room for display of several appliances, a separate room for floor covering samples and a nice, bright office space for Jeff.
During Monday's open house, guests were treated to lively conversation about the weather and impending storms, as well as coffee and cookies.  Jeff, Roxie and I had a discussion about new versus old televisions, as I still have my 20+ year old tube TV that weighs a ton!
Back to the business.  They offer Whirlpool appliances, vacuum cleaners and accessories, replacement windows, TVs, as well as a variety of flooring options from laminate to carpet.  I snapped a few pictures and headed back to KFIL, arriving seconds before the storm hit.
Best wishes to Root River Appliances and Floor Coverings in their new location!
