Striglos Business Solutions Center

The new Striglos Business Solutions Center at 150 E. William St. provides shoppers the opportunity to see and touch some of the more popular chairs, desks and other office equipment. 

More than 30.

That's how many office chairs you can take for a quick test drive at the new Striglos Business Solutions Center at 150 E. William St. And that's a very small sampling of the many styles and colors the folks at Striglos can get for you. Their motto is, after all, Everything Office.

And no chair is off limits. Not even those being used by the staffers in the new showroom located in part of what used to be Haines & Essick, said Ryan Katt, director of sales.

You can check them out for yourself on Thursday, Nov. 15, when Striglos hosts a Greater Decatur Chamber of Commerce ribbon cutting and open house beginning at 5:30 p.m.

In business since 1960, the office equipment and technology portion of the company is well known among local businesses as a source for office furniture, products and services. But for years it was relegated to the upper floors of the William Street building, with just a sampling of the basic office items being displayed on the Haines & Essick sales floor.

Now, the sales floor includes a variety of desks, movable walls, shelving units, copiers and accessories giving casual shoppers and businesses looking to upgrade an opportunity to see some of the more popular office items in their natural habitat.

Katt said there has been a steady stream of people checking the showroom out since it open in July.

The showroom is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. For more about Striglos and the many services and products it provides, go to

As an aside, Katt noted the showroom should have some new neighbors in the near future, with businesses preparing to move into the two open storefronts along William Street.
