Business Buzz: Miller Family Appliance relocates to Ranney Street

The Miller Family Appliance store has moved from the corner of Fourth and Barclay streets to 288 Ranney St. in Craig. The store’s new location formerly housed MJK Sales and Feed and Ace Hardware’s lumber and hardware store, which consolidated to an enlarged space at the store on First Street after leasing the old space to the appliance store.

The new location is about three times as large as the old location, allowing the appliance store to expand its offerings to include Whirlpool, Maytag, Amana and Kitchenaid. The showroom is open from 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday and from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday. The business is closed on Sunday.

MRH Chief Executive Officer Andy Daniels and staff will provide a tour of the facility and highlight the construction project.

“I can’t wait to tour the new facility and learn about the future of health care in our community,” CMEDP Executive Director Michelle Balleck said. “These business visit meetings are a great way for us to be out in our local companies, seeing the work they are doing, deeply understanding our economy and making decisions based on the feedback we hear from local business owners and managers.”

The CMEDP board convenes in a boardroom-style meeting quarterly — in January, April, July and October — and tours local businesses during the remaining months. CMEDP board meetings are open to the public, and anyone interested is encouraged to attend the business visit.
