The Watson Experience

| James at James+James

We're excited to announce that we'll be opening a 'store + woodshop' experience in downtown Springdale, AR. Renovations are underway at the Watson building in downtown Springdale and we will be opening the new experience in early 2020.

We want to give our customers a chance to see our furniture being built and smell the saw dust, so the Watson Experience will include a full demonstration woodshop separated from a large retail store by glass windows (we're actually going to repurpose the original windows from upstairs to create 24 feet of viewing from the store into the woodshop).

The Watson building has a rich history in downtown Springdale and we're so honored to help bring such a special building back to life. The new store will honor and pay tribute to the building's history since the late 1940s.

James+James has been in Springdale since we left our garage in 2012 and we're so excited to be bringing this experience to downtown Springdale. For a company full of hardworking craftsmen and craftswomen, there's no better place for us to bring this experience. Springdale has a rich history of getting to work and making it happen and that's exactly what the hardworking men and women at James+James do everyday. We're very excited about what's happening in downtown Springdale and we hope this new retail experience will give families yet another reason to shop and dine in downtown Springdale.
