Local Businesses Emphasize Buying Local at Madison Home Show


MADISON, NJ — At the third annual Madison Chamber of Commerce Home Show Saturday, businesses encouraged residents to buy local for home improvements. Hosted at a new location this year in the Madison Junior School, the event featured 19 local contractors and home professionals who set up display tables to show passersby their products.

Many of the participating businesses had come back this year because the show “makes a difference,” said Karen Giambra, executive director for the Madison Chamber of Commerce. About 100 people attended, according to one participant.

“It’s always important to get your name out, especially to local people,” said Frank Phillips of Jaeger Lumber, who manned a table with Jerry Sue-Poi and Tom Mikla.

Ty Monk of Monk’s Kitchen & Bath Design & Home Improvements said he thinks citizens will benefit from the work of local contractors because they are more familiar with types of homes that are common in the area. Monk’s has participated in the Home Show for all three years, according to Giambra.

“You have to know the houses,” he said. “We love Madison. Without question it’s one of the better town in the state to work in. We have some of the absolute best customers, and they love to take care of their homes.”

Major sponsors for this event were PipeWorks Services, 33 River Rd., Chatham, Jaeger Lumber, 133 Main St., Madison Kitts & Co., 6 Main St. Madison, and Lakeland Bank, 265 Main St. Madison.

Other vendors that participated included: Monk's Kitchen & Bath Design & Home Improvements, 1095 Mt. Kemble Ave., Morristown; ReUpholstery & Restoration, 2 Central Ave., Cramers Carpet One Floor & Home, 73 Main St., The Oldendorp Group/Keller Williams, 488 Springfield Ave., Summit; Green House Solar, Madison, Power Home Remodeling Group and Renewal by Anderson.
