Sullivans Acquires Woodstock Chimes

Sept 7, 2021

To our Valued Woodstock Chimes Customers:

Today is an exciting but bittersweet day in the history of Woodstock Chimes.

After 42 years in business, my wife, Diane, and I have decided the time is right to sell Woodstock Chimes to the ideal partner who can take our special company to the next level. That partner is Sullivans, a market leader in seasonal and all-occasion home décor.

Effective immediately, we have joined forces with Sullivans. While we are sad to depart the business we founded, we couldn’t be more thrilled about the future of Woodstock Chimes. For over 50 years, Sullivans has built a reputation for world class customer service and unique, high quality products that enable their customers to offer true product differentiation and distinctive assortments.

Woodstock Chimes will continue under the leadership of Stacey Bowers, current president, and remain headquartered in New York’s picturesque Hudson Valley. By merging with Sullivans, we will pull from a larger team that is dedicated to serving the needs of customers across the globe. Our goal is to continue to design and produce quality products that will delight consumers and add value for our retail partners.

We have begun to work on integrating the best of both businesses. There are many details still to be determined, but we can provide the following guidance to help you through the transition:

  • For now, it’s business as usual. 
  • Your orders will continue to ship out of our Shokan, NY, location.
  • Please continue to remit payment in your standard manner. 
  • Work with your existing sales and customer service contacts for all current matters.
  • Should your contacts change in the future, we will communicate to you well in advance.

If you haven’t shopped with Sullivans before, we have good news! We’ve pre-registered you on their website. For access, simply head to, enter the email address you use to access the Woodstock Chimes website, and click “Activate.”

We are happy to answer any questions you might have. Our commitment to you is that we will provide best-in-class support through the integration process and into the future.

We want to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of you for putting your trust in us over the last 42 years. We appreciate your continued support and partnership. We look forward to achieving success together in the future.
