DOVER-FOXCROFT – A Piscataquis Chamber of Commerce ribbon cutting welcomed At Home Furniture Appliance & Bedding to the community at its 16 Summer Street location in a ceremony early in the afternoon of November 18. The business is located in the former home of Dave’s World.

In June, after three and a half decades, Dave’s World announced the sale of the home and appliance portion of the business. Crossing the street at 27 Summer Street in the old Dover Auto Parts building, Dave’s World now focuses on its heat pump business.

“Thank you all for coming. We appreciate it and look forward to serving you in the future,” Schaefer told attendees as he held up scissors to cut the ceremonial ribbon.

“We’re very lucky to have you here and to have new owners who care about the community, want to be part of the community, aren’t just interested in running a business, but really getting in and being a part of it. what’s going on all around us,” said Denise Buzzelli, executive director of the Piscataquis Chamber of Commerce. “I think those are the most successful companies, the ones that have that point of view and don’t focus only on their own agenda.”

“We welcome you, know that you have the support of the Chamber, the Board of Directors, [and] I’m sure the support of other local businesses,” Buzzelli said. “It’s the kind of place we live in. Business owners support each other here.”

Shaefer and Dill met while working for Mainely Rent To Own in Lincoln in 2005 – the company also had a Dover-Foxcroft location opposite the home of At Home Furniture Appliance & Bedding.
