The store opened on McCulloch Blvd. with only 900 sq ft. It was soon apparent that this space was not going to be big enough. They expanded twice, but were still growing. In 2011, the family decided to purchase their own building. Now with 3,500 sq ft, the business has settled into where it’s supposed to be.

Being a smart, business-minded woman, Diane was sure to hire people who had positive demeanor’s and who could provide exceptional customer support. Now with six employees, her daughter Tracy included, Desert Rose is one store you know you can shop in and receive top notch treatment.
