Thank you for visiting Coastal Countertops, formerly That Granite Place.

We have exciting news to share. That Granite Place is changing. We are rebranding to Coastal Countertops. With this name change, we are rebranding our company’s image by changing our look and feel. Our goal is to become your destination for selecting exquisite surfaces used on residential and commercial projects. We expect to be fully transitioned with the name change over the next few months before moving into our new 85,000 sq. ft location in Greenwood.

Same ownership. Same great employees but a fresh new look and feel.
