Buffalo’s First Woodshop, Retail Store & DIY Class Center to Open
Seven One Six Wood Design expands to its first commercial location, in Williamsville
Williamsville, NY: On Friday, May 28th and into Memorial Day weekend, Buffalo will welcome Seven One Six Wood Design, the first of its kind woodshop and retail showroom located in Williamsville. Found next door to the popular 12 Gates Brewing Company, Seven One Six Wood Design will be opening its doors to the public so they can shop its handcrafted wooden products. Plans are underway for DIY classes starting this summer. Ranging from Buffalo themed decor, floating shelves, custom plaques and signs, side tables, general furniture and more, this burgeoning small business has something to help make any house feel like home.
Owner Scott Erikson said of the company’s new expansion “Creating beautiful wooden pieces that bring joy and that feeling of home is what this business is all about. When my wife and I moved into our first home we couldn’t afford to buy all the decorations and furniture, so I thought I’d try and make it. Friends and family seemed to like what I was doing and wanted me to make them things too and from there things took off. This expansion allows to me extend my reach even further and grow locally with the storefront, as well as launch fun DIY classes where people can come in and handcraft their own piece, as well as the experience to go with it.”
The grand opening weekend kicks off on Friday 5/28 at 4 pm with a ribbon cutting ceremony where the Amherst Chamber of Commerce and local representatives will officially welcome the business. Starting on Saturday from 10am to 7pm, and Sunday from 12 to 6pm, the celebration continues with a number of local business and artisan pop ups on site that the public can support as well. In addition to storewide discounts, every 4thth paying customer will receive a voucher for a FREE BEER from 12 Gates Brewing Company!
