The business operated out of a single car garage providing Appliance Sales and Service and radio repair. Eventually Charles Knie, himself, began building a new store (that's right...from the laying of the cement blocks, to the plumbing and wiring of the building!) to provide more space for all the emerging products entering the market. Products which to us today seem ordinary, but at the time, were unheard of: Home 'Stereo' equipment, Color TVs, Dishwashers, Microwave Ovens...well you get the idea!
The Sterling Superstore was doubled in size again, in 2006 with the addition of Ashley Furniture HomeStore. The complete line of Ashley Furniture and home accessories was added to an already impressive line of products including: Appliance from KitchenAid, Maytag, Whirlpool, Amana, Sharp, Bosch, GE, Haier, Samsung, Frigidaire and Danby; Mattresses from Beautyrest, Icomfort, Tempur-Pedic and Ashley Sleep; and Furniture from Ashley and England. Knie's is truly a 'one stop' shopping experience! With just one stop, you can furnish your entire home with new Appliances, Mattresses, Furniture and Home Accent Accessories!
