Three Big Reasons to Shop With Our Small Business: Selection, Service, Style

Sep 29th, 2023

by Tile Wholesalers of Rochester

It’s been 51 years, 2 months, and 27 days since we opened our doors. Since then, we’ve met with hundreds of architects, construction professionals, designers, and homeowners. We’ve watched them shop through our showroom, consult with our specialists, and coordinate with our warehouse crew. From the early beginnings until the moment they leave with the materials they need to make it happen, it’s been our complete honor to watch each project come to life. 

At Tile Wholesalers, we believe great design is personal–whether you’re working on a multi-tenant office building or a small square of your own kitchen backsplash. For that reason, we pride ourselves on offering a completely personal shopping experience with dedicated consultants, a responsive operations team, and an owner always onsite. If you’re a Rochester-adjacent designer, architect, or DIY-er, here are three big reasons to shop with our small business. 


A cook is only as good as her ingredients! We’ve been grateful to establish close partnerships with incredible manufacturers over the years to bring internationally renowned tile to the Rochester community. We carry high-quality products across any category, from ceramics, porcelain, glass, and natural stone tile to handmade & specialty, mosaic, metal, and concrete tile. If you can dream it, we can source it through our vetted network of industry-leading providers.

We know that tile beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Our showroom is stacked with thousands of samples to help you in the brainstorming phase, and we’re here to consult with you and help you find the swatch, material, or size you’ll need. It’s a hands-on exploration in our Rochester showroom–and collaborating with our clients is one of our favorite things to do


Speaking of collaboration, we pride ourselves on a soup-to-nuts approach to customer service. Our team of experts is here to assist you from the moment you step inside to the day you can send us your before and after photo montage. We’re thrilled to be able to facilitate the full designer’s journey, sourcing samples, ordering materials, packing your car, and advising on the kinds of care products, trim, and installation materials you’ll need for a successful installation.


Being family-owned and operated has changed the way we do business. We understand that everything we do–from sourcing to staffing–is about the people, and we have a special affinity for our Rochester community. We’ve gone far and wide to help our clients stay local and have access to on-trend looks and timeless pieces.


For almost 20 years, we’ve been at our current location at 1136 East Ridge Road. This month, we made space for something even better. We moved our operations one door down the road and handed our showroom over for a complete and total makeover. Our new and improved showroom will employ the best things technology can offer to enhance the customer experience. Open spaces, beautiful lighting, and easy-to-navigate product displays will make for an inspiring visit. We can’t wait to welcome you into our new space. Like all good things, it will take some time–you’ll find us right down the road while we wait!
