Meet Ralph and Julie Smothers, owners of Ralph’s Joy of Living, located at 33 N. Washington St. in Tiffin. This year, Ralph’s celebrated 65 years in business. With an emphasis on being a one-stop-shop, Ralph’s is also the only appliance store in the US with a wine and beer license. They carry more than 600 wine labels, a great selection of imported beer, fresh roasted coffee, all kinds of kitchen gadgets, cookware, appliances and televisions. This March, they will add a Serta mattress showroom so customers can “Eat, Drink, Sleep.”
“We love Tiffin, this is our home,” Ralph says. “We want to bring people in not only from Tiffin, but from a two hour radius. If I can bring people to Tiffin, it helps everyone. We believe in providing superior customer service; people love coming here because they know they’ll be looked after.”
You can “Escape From Grouchy” at Ralph’s Joy of Living Mon-Wed 9 a.m. – 6 p.m., Thurs-Fri 9 a.m. – 7 p.m. and Sat 9 a.m. – 5 p.m.
