Green's Relocates To North Chattanooga

Thursday, October 26, 2017

Chattanooga's healthy home improvement store has a new name and a new home. Green's Design & Supply will operate a showroom and a storefront at 436 Frazier Ave. in the NorthShore. 

"The move and re-branding reflect how we've evolved over the past two and half years of business," said co-owner Sam Young. 

Every customer that walks into Green's enjoys a unique customer service experience specific to their project - whether it be painting a wall, tiling a shower, or renovating a kitchen, said officials. The store provides advice about how to go about the project, and healthy products and designs needed to complete it.

The new "Design" showroom faces Frazier Avenue and features installed examples of flooring, cabinetry, countertops, tile, paint, appliances and reclaimed wood. The "Supply" storefront is downstairs and features all the safe and healthy paints, primers, stains, wood finishes and accessories that make up the retail side of the business. 

To celebrate this re-opening and metamorphosis, Green's will host an open house and ribbon cutting with the Chattanooga Area Chamber of Commerce on Friday, Nov. 3, at 4:30 p.m. 

"We certainly would not be where we are today without the support of our customers and a great number of community partners," said Mr. Young. 

Green's remains dedicated to the original mission of selling "non-toxic and American-made building materials" that promote environmental stewardship, economic prosperity, human health and efficiency and innovation.
