"IN THE LAST ISSUE of Window & Door magazine, we took readers on a tour of some of the most impressive showrooms across the country to get excited and inspired for the Dream Showroom—a 4,400-square-foot pavilion at Window & Door Dealer Days at GlassBuild America that will feature residential windows and doors from the industry’s leading suppliers. Our exploration continues this month with a few snapshots from additional retail spaces that show how more and more dealers are truly livin’ the dream. 
Torrance LC Door" The scale of products on display, the art deco flavor, and wide-open ambience are just a few of the facets of Associated Building Supply Inc.’s 10 California showrooms. But what is truly unique is the company’s open-door policy. ABSi showrooms are accessible via key code by ABSi vendor partners, architects, builders, and designers."We strive to always be present, but there are situations where timing and privacy may play a significant role in the sales process,” explains Scott Thurber. This particular photo was taken at the ABSi Torrance Showroom featuring a 12' wide X 9" tall LaCantina Door. At this Showroom you'll find an array of over sized wood, aluminum, and steel doors systems. All door systems are 9' tall!
