We often greet customers coming through the doors and discover that they think of Carpet One as either a single large corporation or individual franchises. That is actually not the case. As an independent and family owned business for over 35 years, we joined the Carpet One co-op for numerous reasons.
- Substantial group buying power to offer better values for our customers.
- Ability to learn from each of the other Carpet One members.
- Product Innovations such as H2O carpet and Healthy Living install that would not have been cost effective to develop as a single store.
- Ability to maintain our own identity and roots.
While there is nothing wrong with franchises or large corporations, we are proud to be able to maintain our own brand identity, serve our local community and run the business in the best interest of our customers. However, being part of the Carpet One co-op gives us much better pricing and more innovative products to offer. This truly is a win-win situation for us and customers.
Carpet One has a short statement about this that we are including here that describes this very well.
