Norristown Tile & Marble Co. was founded in 1927 by Raymond R. McClennen of Sellersville, PA. Raymond hired my grandfather, Alexander Clark, as an apprentice. In March of 1937, Raymond gave the business to Alex in payment for back wages owed. Over the next three decades, the business thrived: installing tile in residences, schools and churches in the fast developing Norristown area.
In 1958, my grandfather hired his son-in -law, Robert Thorpe, as an apprentice. They opened a tile showroom on E. Lafayette Street in Norristown where my grandmother helped the customers make their tile selections. During the early 1960's the business expanded to the Main Line of the Philadelphia suburbs.
Robert Thorpe became the sole owner of the tile company in 1969. In 1984, after my graduation from Villanova University, my father turned the company over to me: his son, Todd. I continue to carry on the family business to this day.
