Peter J. Magnotti, along with his partner, founded the stone and marble center in 1950. In 1963 Peters’ son William J. (Pat) Magnotti joined the company after graduating from The Citadel. In 1965 Peter J. Magnotti took over 100% of the company and it became known as Magnotti & Son, Inc. The company continued to supply stone, marble, granite and other unusual building material to the Tri-State area. In 1968 Magnotti & Son opened the first of its three “The Fireplace” stores. By 1972 there were three Fireplace stores in operation, and the company became a major source for fireplaces and fireplace accessories. In 1975 “The Fireplace“ became known as “The Fireplace & Patioplace” with the addition of the finest lines of patio furniture and patio accessories. In 1993 The Fireplace & Patioplace added barbecues to their list of fine products and now boasts one of the largest barbecue centers in the United States. In 2004 we relocated our East store in a 10,000sqft retail location on Rt. 22 in Murrysville. In 2004 we also expanded our north locations and added one in Cranberry. Today along with almost 50 employees The Fireplace and Patioplace specializes in installing Fireplaces, designing Outdoor Barbeque Kitchens and creating beautiful Outdoor Rooms furnished with gorgeous Patio Furniture.
Just wanted to thank this store personally for such wonderful service. My husband and I are in the market for a fireplace. We are putting an addition on our house, and the whole renovation project has been very stressful. When we walked in, a gentleman named Frank Dasta, greeted us with a smile. He was so professional, and so helpful. Having one portion of this project be stress free, was priceless. We will be back!!
My husband and I have been visiting several different stores looking for a new patio set. The service at this location far exceeded any other that we've had thus far. Frank took excellent care of us, and we had lots of laughs while we learned about the different products. We will be back to purchase as soon as my bouns arrives. Wonderful experience!!!!
Shout out to Brad and Marcy for working with us on our patio furniture purchase and delivery. It looks beautiful on the patio and we love the gliders!
The color turned out to be a winner as well. Thanks again! Excellent Service - Happy customer!
Just had our wood burning fireplace converted to gas. The installers Gary & Greg from South hills ran into some challenges, but they did not give up. They were professional, and kind and got the job done beautifully. We love our new fireplace. Thank you so much!
"It has totally updated the room. Thanks for helping me to find a solution to everything I was concerned about. Chad and Dan were great. Chad made sure I was comfortable with everything and that it was, above all else, safe."
What makes a fantastic store is more than selling good products, it is customer service when things are not right.
