An 'old-new' Robb & Stucky looks toward GROWTHFebruary 7, 2019
The featured style in Robb & Stucky’s glossy 2019 winter catalogue is called Modern Beach House. The luxury home furnishings and interior design company creates this contemporary style and others seamlessly, although individual pieces come from manufacturers across the U.S. as well as Asia.
Before each product is given a “white glove” inspection and finally shipped out to show- rooms in South Florida and to homeowners anywhere in the world, it all comes through the company’s new 125,000-square-foot distribution center and corporate headquarters off Lee Road in South Fort Myers. “It’s the whole kit and caboodle,” said distribution manager Keith Fraser one morning in late January, after solving an issue with a large glass table-top that had failed to fit in someone’s elevator. “Everything from the whole company rolls in to this building.”
The company that was started more than a century ago in downtown Fort Myers, hit hard by a global economic downtown, and came in to new ownership in 2011 after being forced in to bankruptcy, has grown steadily over the last seven years and is planning further stores in Florida and beyond.
