The Year was 1978. Jimmy Carter was president and the nation was fighting inflation like it had never seen before. That year, Lyle and Judy Miller purchased the license to manufacture and distribute Fisher wood burning stoves for all of Southwest Oregon.
Thousands of stoves rolled off the lines and headed for Klamath Falls, Medford, the coast and into Douglas County.
By 1980 there were more than 300 stove manufacturers in the state but with all the pollution generated by this production, it wasn’t long before DEQ increased regulations governing wood stoves.
With the experience garnered through the years of manufacturing, the family decided to continue with the retail operation of the business.
Through the years many new and exciting hearth products have been added to the store, always keeping quality products at a fair price as a business goal.
