There are a lot of people who walk in and out of our doors on a daily basis. Couples ready to pick out an awesome backsplash, loyal lifetime customers coming in for a new project, and first time homebuyers preparing to take on their first project! We’ve recently noticed that many of the wonderful people who walk through our doors are first time homebuyers. If this is you, let us be the first to welcome you, with open arms, to the world of home owning! We have just a few tips of places to explore, eat, and enjoy around Lancaster City. Here is a quick run down of the “need to know” places to go and events to attend…


Dining Options:

| Rachel’s Creperie

A little taste of a French staple with an American twist, perfect for breakfast. Who doesn’t love a good crêpe?


| Sprout: Rice & Noodles

Cute, delicious, and healthy! A perfect lunch and dinner spot. It’s a taste of Vietnamese food right here in Lancaster City!


| Annie Bailey’s

Grab a few drinks and some delicious food! Annie Bailey’s is a popular place to hang out during the day as well as evenings. 


| Penny’s

Because it’s summer and Carmen and David’s Ice Cream is a MUST!



Local Hang Outs:

| Long’s Park

A beautiful park featuring a pond right outside of the city! It’s the perfect place get away from the busy city life. 


| Lancaster Central Market

Open Tuesday, Friday, and Saturday, the Market is the place to get fresh produce and Lancaster county foods!


| Many Cafés

There is no shortage of places to casually meet up with friends or spend some time to yourself reading with a nice cup of coffee. Lancaster is full of cafes and coffee shops like Commonwealth on Queen and Prince St Cafe. 



Upcoming Events:

From concerts at Long’s Park to shows at the Fulton, Lancaster has a variety of fun events to attend! Here are a few links to get you started…

Ken Sprout, our senior sales associate with Indoor City, will sadly be leaving for retirement this week. Friday, May 31st will be his last day. We will miss him but are also happy that he can spend his time as he wishes. Ken has 40 years of experience in the floor covering industry. The last twelve years have been spent here at Indoor City. Ken has a vast knowledge of floor covering products as well as maintenance products and procedures. Ken maintains all of our sundries in the showroom and is our “resident hardwood expert.” We rely on Ken for addressing flooring issues as well as answering any questions we have about products and applications.

Ken is always willing to take on any type of project around the showroom (like helping assemble and put up our Christmas trees). He can put together and take apart displays in no time. When the designers need a floor move – Ken is there to help. Although a challenge for him, he managed to conquer our new computer system that was introduced 2 years ago. He has really kept up-to-date in the world of technology! He has also written information for our website. Some of our favorite memories are Ken’s funny stories and e-mails – he loves a good laugh!

Ken has been married for 54 years and has 2 daughters and 3 grandchildren. His hobbies include involvement in his church, fishing, and raising roses. Ken plans on doing more traveling and “spur of the moment” trips now that he doesn’t have to worry about his work schedule. We wish Ken well and hope his good health and happiness continue for years to come!

Farewell to Ken Sprout
