Surroundings Furniture and Design is moving down Tilton Road in Northfield to a larger store to accommodate its growth and its customers' desire for more products.

Co-owner David Schwartz said the store will more than double in size, from the current 4,400 square feet to 11,500 square feet in the new location.

"We're transforming that building into what we hope will be one of the nicest buildings on Tilton Road," Schwartz said.

Christine Borchardt, his wife, started Surroundings 11 years ago in Egg Harbor City and soon moved it to Northfield, focusing mostly on American-made furniture and accessories.

Schwartz said the new location will offer a wider range of products, including such American makers as Stanley Furniture, American Leather and Lee Industries.
