WHERE WE'VE BEEN
Showcase Interiors opened its doors in October 1975. Immediately after his return from a church mission, 21 year old Blair Rigby partnered with his brother-in-law to open a new home furnishing store offering flooring, kitchen cabinets, paint, appliances & furniture.
8 months later they faced a major challenge that threatened the survival of the business. On June 5, 1976, the Teton Dam broke, destroying homes & businesses in Sugar City, Rexburg, and the surrounding communities. It filled the Showroom & warehouse with 6 feet of water and swept huge rolls of carpet and other large items right out the back door and miles downstream. Some rolls of carpet were found 2 miles away wrapped around giant trees in the Rexburg Cemetery!
As a result of the flood, Showcase became cemented in the community. The demand for the products Showcase provided exploded! Blair recalls, "Everybody wanted everything at once. We went through a lot of growing pains, but in the end it conditioned us to better handle people's needs." Since then, Showcase has maintained a focus of continued support to the region with its excellent service, varied product lines & community focus.
As the decades have gone by, Showcase has steadily grown (now with 3 added warehouses) & is widely known for carrying a variety of flooring in stock. We service residential, commercial, and multi-family community.
Patrick Bjornn began working at Showcase Interiors when he was hired in January of 1996, fresh off his own church mission. He worked in the warehouse for a year before securing a spot on the sales staff, eventually becoming the sales manager. He immediately found he loved learning about the people he met on a personal level, & selling them some flooring was simply a bonus. During this time, he married Anna Harris, graduated from BYU-Idaho, & they had 5 wonderful children.
Eventually, Patrick & Blair agreed on the future direction of Showcase. In March of 2020, Patrick & Anna Bjornn purchased the store from Blair & Denise Rigby. Patrick firmly believes in applying the Golden Rule to business. "Don't sell our friends anything that you, under simlar conditions, wouldn't want yourself." At Showcase, it is all about the customer. Our goal is to discover the vision of our friends, & then give them the best service and product we possibly can; before, during, & after the sale.
WHERE WE'RE GOING
We look forward to the decades ahead of happily meeting & serving our loyal customers.
*We will ALWAYS treat you with respect and friendship.*
