Acme Brick Company, the largest brick maker in the country, recently opened a new, larger showroom in Springdale. The company had outgrown its former location at 1607 N. Thompson St. and celebrated the opening of a new 6,256-square-foot showroom at 4877 N. 54th St. with demonstrations for architects, builders, and landscapers. Founded in 1891, Acme opened its first Springdale location in 1978. According to a press release, drastic population growth in Northwest Arkansas led to increased brick production and demand for a larger showroom and warehouse. In addition to brick, natural stone, and other masonry materials, this location offers fireplace systems, iron doors, grills, and more outdoor living products. Showroom hours are 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. For more information, visit brick.com.
