New office furniture company
Fargo-based InterOffice is opening a Bismarck location.
Kyle Hellman, who is handling sales and design for InterOffice, said the new showroom will open June 1 at 920 E. Front Ave. in Bismarck.
Hellman has worked in furniture sales for 29 years for a number of other Bismarck companies. When InterOffice became the sole company selling Herman Miller Systems Furniture and Seating, Hellman joined the company to continue selling the furniture line, which he said was “pretty popular here in Bismarck.”
Hours for the new showroom are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Friday, as well as by appointment.
In addition to Herman Miller, the store will carry a number of other lines, offer space-planning and design, and service for the furniture it sells. The Bismarck location will employ up to four people, Hellman said.
