Area Glass in St. John is under new ownership.

Area Glass in St. John is under new ownership after more than three decades of selling shower doors, mirrors, beveled tabletops and cabinet doors to homeowners across the Region.

Schaaf Window Company, of Tinley Park, acquired the "shower door and mirror studio" at 9250 Thiel St., in St. John, for an undisclosed sum. Area Glass has served Northwest Indiana and the Chicago area for 33 years.

"We are excited to announce that we have sold Area Glass to Schaaf Window, an exceptional family-owned business with 59 years of experience in the glass, shower door, millwork and window industries," Area Glass said in a news release. "Schaaf assures our clients a smooth transition by retaining the great skills and expertise of Area Glass' current employees, while providing new product offerings and services."

Area Glass operates the showroom just off Indianapolis Boulevard in St. John, repairs windows and does custom home installations of glass products like vanity mirrors, frameless shower doors, sliding shower doors and even wall-length dance studio mirrors.
