We are under new ownership! Oh, it’s not a like a hostile takeover, bankruptcy or being bought by the Japanese. It’s just that Mrs. Merle Peratis is 95 years old now and it is time to hand over the reins to the next generation. I’m proud that Ms. Merle entrusted the business to me as the new owner and General Manager. We're looking forward to another 65 years!
New ownership doesn’t mean giving up our 65 years of heritage. The same team is here, with the exception that Jeri Peratis, Merle’s daughter, has retired. We have the same great service. The same great products are still here. All the things that you love about Capital Ceramics will stay.
What will improve will be the things that make it easier for our customers to do business with us. Things like:
- We are redecorating our store to better serve our friends here in Salt Lake City. Pardon our mess while we move some of the old fixtures out and replace them.
- Our new website and e-commerce system is about ready to launch. You’ll soon be able to order your favorite clay and never even leave your potter’s wheel.
- We will be expanding our product lines so look for more new and exciting products including gas fired kilns.
- Other surprises coming soon!
If there is a product or service that you would like us to add, be sure to let us know! Send us your email address and like us on Facebook so that we can keep you updated on our next changes. We love your creative ideas that will help make us better.
