Take it for granite
Surprisingly for some, natural stone is “very affordable,” says Rachel Jones, office manager for Triton Stone Group of New Orleans, a wholesale natural stone yard that provides granite, marble, travertine, onyx and other natural stone products. “Our stone is imported from all around the world, with the majority coming in from Brazil, Italy, India and Spain.”

 Jones, who co-owns the business with Cindy Jensen, Christian Jensen and Katie Peralta, says “clients find our wide selections of sinks and faucets very convenient to purchase here.”

Triton Stone Group of New Orleans realizes that homeowners deal with a multitude of decisions and can easily become overwhelmed; Jones says their goal is to make the process of picking out stone as easy and seamless as possible. “We have a commitment to our customers to provide them with superior customer service,” she says. “We have a dedicated sales staff that personally assists each and everyone of our clients. Whether it’s for information or for advice, our staff is here to help.”
