SPOTLIGHT // Ottawa // Hubert's Fireplace Design & Consultation
Winter 2019 // Learn about what's hot from the trailblazers at Hubert's Fireplace Design & Consultation.
THE COMPANY: With community roots that extend back almost a century, Hubert’s Fireplace Consultation + Design started in Hintonburg as a family-run stove and heating company. In 2017, during their 95th anniversary year, they moved to their current location in Ottawa’s east end. This company has evolved over the years to reflect trends and to meet the needs of their growing client base. Hubert’s is now a specialized hearth retailer, with custom fireplaces and outdoor grills. They focus not only on personalized customer service (concept to completion all done by in-house staff including unit install, framing, tiling, custom mantels and cabinetry) but also emphasize customer education in order to ensure clients are choosing the best possible product or service for their needs. This is the only hearth store in Ottawa that is owned and operated by women, which is noteworthy in a mostly male industry. Owner Jodie Matthiesen is following in the footsteps of her trailblazing mother, who cleared a path for her into the industry a generation ago.
