OLDS ­— The Brick will hit Olds next week.

OLDS ­— The Brick will hit Olds next week.

The Western Canadian furniture and appliance retailer is set to open a franchised store in the former Olds Value Drug Mart at 5106 50th Ave. Owner-operator Keith Beck said the store will open to the general public on Oct. 2.

The building’s 13,000 square feet will be shared with Ashley Fine Floors, with The Brick occupying about 10,000 square feet.

“It works out to be a fantastic complement,” said Beck of the partnership with Ashley.

A 24-year veteran with The Brick, Beck has worked in Edmonton as well as at stores in British Columbia and Saskatchewan. He thinks Olds is a “fantastic” place for The Brick.

“There is great opportunity for growth in this town,” he said, noting that The Brick has succeeded in other, smaller communities.

He expects the store to keep many consumers in town that otherwise might have travelled to Calgary or Red Deer to shop.

“We have a very good amount of furniture on the showroom display, but we can also draw off of our website — www.thebrick.com — and then we can order anything they want off of there.”
