About Us

Our Mission

Here at Stove and Spa Center, we are committed to making your life more comfortable by reducing your stress. For centuries, fire has brought warmth and comfort to people. A family hearth creates a cozy gathering place that draws people in like a magnet. Similarly, hot water with massage releases endorphins, relieves pain and allows us to re-connect our fragmented lives. We feature only the best quality products in each category. To this we add our commitment to excellent customer service and trained sales professionals, assuring you that your product will be installed according to all building and safety requirements. To add confidence to your peace of mind, our installers and service professionals are trained and certified to properly install and keep these products working for years to come.

Our History

Stove and Spa Center began business in 1988 as Stove and Spa Shoppe, for the express purpose of providing a competitive retail outlet for stoves, inserts and fireplaces burning gas, wood or pellets. Other products sold included chimney systems, hearth accessories, spas and chemicals. At one time we had stores in both Paso Robles and Santa Maria, California. Since the inception of Stove & Spa Center we have evolved into a much larger business, necessitating a name change from Stove and Spa Shoppe to Stove and Spa Center. We currently have one large store (8000 square feet) in Atascadero, California. Our products are marketed from northern Santa Barbara County to southern Monterey County, but our primary market is San Luis Obispo County. We have always set a high value on the very best quality products backed by expert professionalism in sales, installation and service.

Our Staff

Stove and Spa Center is a family-owned business. Wesley and Lora Dawes are the owners and are involved in the day-to-day operations of the business. Our certified installers and service professionals can properly set up and maintain each and every product we carry. We offer free water analysis for your spa in our computerized testing lab. Our satisfied customers have helped us grow from a small fledgling business into a well-established multi-faceted retail outlet with the largest showroom of superb comfort products you can find in the Central Coast area.
