The first-ever Spectacular Sperry Home Improvement Show was a hit last Saturday as hundreds of prospective customers browsed the booths of a dozen or so home improvement experts along Sperry Road in Westlake.
The newly-opened Bath Depot and Window Depot location at 24510 Sperry Drive (the site of the former Starz Ballroom) served as host.
“We had great crowds, the food trucks were delicious and the traffic was steady all day long,” said Window Depot Administrator Gloria Morse. “We had Steel Magnolia out of Oberlin and Smokin’ Barbeque from Westlake and also Kona Ice for the kids.
“Lots of people expressed their excitement about the new building. They were all very complimentary! There was lots of vendor interest – especially Rocky River Plant Company because people could take something home with them.”
Window Depot and Bath Depot have occupied the space which was formerly Starz Ballroom for 9 months now, however the building’s new look has made it abundantly clear that the team at Window and Bath Depot have an eye for design and the ability to perform an incredible transformation.
“We were very grateful for all the compliments and pleased to know that local residents have been starting to take notice of the buildings new look!” said Gloria. “And the other local companies that came to exhibit were pleasantly surprised by the turnout. People were still coming in at 5:30-5:45.”
The Window Depot-Bath Depot building was sold in the fall of 2021 to home improvement entrepreneur Tony Hoty. It didn’t take long for Hoty to submit his plans to the City of Westlake for a major overhaul of the tired looking structure. It is now looking fresh and new and hosts attractive showrooms that are close to home for the West Shore shopper.
The company staff is humbled to join the ranks of such well recognized local home service brands like Brad Smith Roofing, Design Surfaces and Bay Heating & Air along Sperry Drive.
They were so excited that they decided to transform their grand opening into a home improvement show that allowed these neighboring businesses and few other established local home pros to come together for an event that was fun for the whole family.
