Window World Akron Announces Grand Re-Opening on Oct. 5 & 6 and Ribbon Cutting on Oct. 4

9/11/2018
Window World of Akron will kick off the Grand Re-opening of their expanded showroom and warehouse with a Ribbon Cutting ceremony on Thursday, October 4, 2018, at 4:00 p.m. at 2424 Gilchrist Road, Akron, OH.  A Grand Re-Opening Open House for the general public will take place  Friday, October 5, 2018, and Saturday, October 6, 2018, with refreshments, prizes and a chance to win a $5,000 Home Makeover from Window World. 

Window World of Akron is owned and operated by father, son and grandson, Fred, Pat  and Patrick Moran.  Construction of the expanded showroom, warehouse and parking began in December, 2016. Robert Alan Mastriana, AIA and president of The 3M Company, Youngstown, Ohio redesigned the original building to what it is today.  “The Window World Akron space was the most dramatic transformation of any renovation project we have ever done,” comments Mastriana.  “We turned an unappealing, difficult structure into a retail / warehouse space of timeless appeal, that we believe greatly improves the entire Gilchrist Road corridor.”

In August, 2018, Window World® presented the Moran Family with the “Best New Showroom Award” at the national Window World Family Reunion in Orlando, Florida. 

The new showroom is designed to be a destination where homeowners can view the latest design trends in replacement windows, patio doors and entry doors. “Our displays feature all the bells and whistles, colors and combinations that make exterior renovation truly exciting,”, says owner Pat Moran.  “With dozens of entry doors and replacement windows on display, along with professional help and interactive tools, folks can get a great idea of what they can do to improve their home.”

Window World of Akron first opened in 2001, the eighteenth Window World franchise in the country. The Moran family began operation in January 2016 and are confident the newly expanded space will be a plus for the company and their customers. Fred Moran says, “Having other franchises in Cleveland, Toledo, and Youngstown, Akron is the perfect place to expand our footprint and pull resources together to better serve our customers.”
