What’s behind Red Door Three soon will be a new showroom.

“It’ll give clients a lot more options,” owner Stacy Edmundson says. “It’s a huge difference.”

She’s an authorized dealer for Nimlok, a global company that makes a variety of display products, such as for trade shows and permanent installation projects.

Edmundson plans to open the showroom next month in 3,700 square feet at 118 E. 13th St. in Andover.

“We’ve totally lacked a showroom,” she says. “That’s why we’re doing this.”

When she opened the business three years ago, Edmundson had a warehouse, but the space couldn’t support a showroom.

She says she knew she eventually wanted a showroom, but she says, “It’s so hard to have a showroom because we sell so many different products.”

Generally, Edmundson takes displays to clients, but she says they told her they’d prefer to see a variety of displays at once.

The showroom basically will be “a solution center,” Edmundson says. She’ll have samples of flooring, fabrics, trusses and extrusions.

“Basically, the materials that we (use) to create exhibits for clients.”

Edmundson says she’ll be able to offer storage and custom designs for clients, who can browse displays at the space and go there to view their own custom designs and make modifications.

Currently, Red Door Three has an office at Terradyne Country Club. In a year, Edmundson says she’ll move her office next to her showroom when another tenant moves out, which will give her just over 4,000 square feet there.

Edmundson lives in Andover and says she “just believed in supporting the local community here.” She says the showroom will have easy access to highways.

Some customers and potential customers may not understand everything Red Door Three offers, Edmundson says, and she says she thinks the showroom will help with that.

“They don’t realize that we are a full custom house,” Edmundson says.

“It’ll give them a visual of a lot of things we can do that they didn’t think we could do,” she says. “We just want them to know our full capabilities.”
