- Vermilion Voice
Toma Fine Floors and Shelly’s Window Coverings Ltd. moved to their new location at 5114 - 50 Avenue in Vermilion on February 1. The team have enjoyed their new location that offers more space to provide a welcoming atmosphere. “We spent five and a half months from breaking soil to opening our doors. Our goal is still to offer flooring, ceramic tile, kitchen cabinets, window coverings, and design services. We support residential and commercial projects including renovations and new builds big or small; looking at every project with the same quality and service. We will be celebrating five years of business together in Vermilion in July,” said working partner Shelly Corbiere. Having outgrown their previous space, they weren’t able to showcase all of their products and can now offer Vermilion and area more selection. Shelly noted that most people are visual, so they appreciate being able to see and touch the samples or take them home to test them in their space. “It’s overwhelming for some people to plan a renovation or build and by offering design services, we can take the stress off much of the decision making process for clients. We have installation services for all of our products, and offer free estimates and competitive pricing. People want a fresh look. It can be due to allergies, maintenance, or changing portions of their space to feel new again. These changes can help them feel better, be energy saving, or increase value,” said Shelly. Throughout the years, Toma Fine Floors and Shelly’s Window Coverings Ltd have been supporting youth and events in Vermilion and surrounding communities through donations to agricultural societies, hockey, 4-H, etc. “It is important to do that in every community. I would like to thank Vermilion and area residents for having such a high percentage of people who continue to shop locally,” said working partner Nick Toma. Nick has been in the industry for 45 years, including work in installation, distribution, and manufacturing, and his dream had always been to open his own retail outlet. “I like having customers become friends,” said Nick. “I love being a part of making a difference with a clients project from start to finish; seeing a client’s dream become a reality. We will be continually changing as we set up more displays. We would like to invite people to stop in, and we look forward to helping them,” said Shelly.
