Nov. 25 is Small Business Saturday and an opportunity for the community to show support by visiting and shopping at local businesses.
CB FOX, the large department store in the heart of downtown Los Alamos at 1735 Central Ave., has been in the Fox family since 1979. Co-owner Dave Fox arrived in Los Alamos in July of that year. He explained that his predecessor, Clement & Benner Department Store, was for sale and its relationship to the community was rock solid.
“Our uncommonly broad range of merchandise, plus non-stop dedication to creating more and more choice for Los Alamos, all selected with our Los Alamos-trained eye to fit the way we live, play, work, and travel, and for high-functionality, durability and lasting good looks for casual living, and we never forget special delights that frankly separate this store from nearly all others,” Fox said.
The store carries quality furniture at prices that beat the competition in Albuquerque and Santa Fe on brands such as Flexsteel, Omnia, Beautyrest, Serta, Tempurpedic, Whittier Wood, Simply Amish, Fusion Amish, Home Trend Designs and Fiezy Rugs. Simply Amish, La-Z-Boy, Flexsteel, Omnia, Tempurpedic, Beautyrest, ComfortPedic & Kincaid, Fox said.
“You’ll find everything you need to transform your home into a place where you can entertain family and friends or relax and unwind. It’s our combination of tasteful design, quality furnishings, and value that truly set us apart!” he said. “We also carry men’s, women’s clothing, footwear, gifts and jewelry, travel items, LANL workwear, Los Alamos T-shirts and souvenirs and Los Alamos history items and books.” Don’t forget CB Fox Kidz for hard to find toys and souvenirs not found at the big box stores,” he said.
CB Fox has grown over the years and now has 24 employees. Fox and “the girl he married,” Anne, have owned the store for 38 years. The store is now operated by their son, Andy Fox, and David Volk, general manager.
“The store is far bigger on the inside than it looks … 23,000-square-feet … big as half a football field … thus supports uncommon breadth of choice,” Fox said. “We offer dedicated community support from CB FOX itself and personally from the Andy Fox family, and Dave Fox family.”
