Water Depot in Minden has moved to a new location.
Now pitched at the corner of Newcastle Street and Hwy. 35, where Spa in the Highlands used to be, the new store has been completely remodeled to better serve customers, says co-manager Krysta Neave.
“We’re super pumped to get into this new space. It’s a different layout than we had before, but we think this is the perfect place to expand the business,” Neave said. “Maintaining access off the highway was a big deal for us. We think we’ll have great visibility here.”
They took ownership of the space last September and have spent months renovating. Much of the work inside has been complete, with the space opening May 8.
A new six-tap water table has been installed, featuring both reverse osmosis and alkaline options, while Neave said there’s more space to showcase some of the water treatment equipment Water Depot stocks, such as ultraviolet systems, replacement bulbs and filters, iron reduction units, water softeners, reverse osmosis systems, and chlorine reduction units.
Neave said the store is maintaining its hot tub services, including sale of units, installation, and maintenance. A new addition is the Chilly Moose line of reusable water bottles and coolers.
Locals will be able to get water at all hours, with a new outdoor station installed May 9. Neave said the unit can be accessed 24 hours a day.
While securing the new space has been a sizeable investment and represents a change in business model – Neave noted the building has been purchased, while the previous location was rented – there’s more work to come. She said the siding on the building will be replaced later this year.
“We see this as securing our future [in Minden]. We now have a space to call our own, and we’ve made it really welcoming for customers. It’s much brighter when you walk in here. We couldn’t be more excited about the move,” she said.
