In April 2021, Paulson’s Floor Coverings purchased the former Dig Dog Hotel and Daycare located at 521 SE 9th Street in Bend for $2,100,000. Brokers Dan Kemp, CCIM and Peter May, CCIM represented the seller, Dig Dog Hotel, while Kemp also represented the buyer, Paulson’s Floor Coverings. The 8,984 SF industrial building on 0.79 acre will house Paulson’s second Bend location.
“Paulson’s Floor Coverings is extremely excited to continue to grow in Central Oregon,” Paulson’s owner Tyler Paulson stated. “Securing this building will allow Paulson’s to stock a wide variety of products that are specifically geared for the Central Oregon marketplace and allow us to serve our customers better.”
The former luxury dog daycare center will be transformed into a showroom and consultation center to display new product lines. Compass Commercial Construction Services was contracted to oversee the build-out for Paulson’s. One primary ticket item is the installation of new roll-up doors for the facility.
“The highly specialized industrial/retail building is much nicer than a traditional industrial building with significantly more interior build-out. There were some basic industrial building features, including the lack of roll-up delivery doors, that are in the process of being altered to accommodate the new use,” Kemp stated.
The central location around Wilson Avenue and 9th Street has drawn a variety of industrial companies to the area. Paulson’s Floor Coverings is one of the newest editions to the industrial epicenter.
“This building will help Paulson’s expand their Central Oregon footprint to serve their existing customer base better,” Kemp said. “It will also give them the ability to attract new customers. Being located next to Mutual Materials will create some potential synergies too.”
Paulson commented, “We hope to be open the summer of 2021. We look forward to seeing you very soon!”
