A little bit about Bare's Stove and Spa
Montie Bare of Livingston began his career in the stove business installing LaStoves that were being sold by Owenhouse Hardware Store.
In the spring of 1980, the first store, Bare’s Stove Cove and Grizzly Irrigation opened in a a 450 sq. ft. space in the 200 block of North 7th Avenue.
The first hearth product line offered was Blaze King Wood Stoves. These stoves were being built by Merlin Hickman and Merv Lefferts in nearby Fort Ellis. In 1981 Lopi was added to their product lineup.
The business expanded to the adjoining space doubling in size to a whopping 900 sq. ft. Just 3 short years later, Bare’s needed to expand yet again. Bare’s moved to the North Gate Shopping Center next to Van’s IGA. In 1984 the name was changed to Bare’s Stove & Spa with the additional product of hot tubs while retaining the stove and irrigation part of the business. Bare’s became the area’s only dealer of Sundance Spas in 1986. In 1990 the Grizzly Irrigation portion of the business was sold.
In 1996, Kathi Lytle Bare and Montie Bare began construction of their beautiful location at 301 Evergreen Drive. In April 1997, Bare’s Stove & Spa opened the doors to their new 3,000 sq. ft. showroom. The business was purchased by Anderson's Masonry Hearth and Home from Kathi and Montie in August of 2017.
