Best Locally-Owned Carpet & Flooring Stores Near Me?

Honest and Reputable locally-owned carpet stores are getting harder to find these days. Over the past 20 years, a few large corporate entities have moved in and started selling new carpet and flooring and advertising heavily. As a result, many well established family-run flooring shops could not compete and have closed their doors forever.

It was about fifteen years ago, when my website visitors started asking me “which local carpet stores do you recommend?” and “where’s the best place to buy new carpet and flooring?”

Sadly, with over 30 years in the business, I had already encountered so many scams in the flooring business that my initial response was just to tell them WHERE NOT TO BUY! That also included all the new corporately-owned retailers too.

And that’s how my nationwide list of reputable locally-owned carpet stores got started! It’s taken me over 15 years (so far) to compile my short list of trusted flooring stores to recommend to my readers.

Why so long? I am super picky about who I recommend. Maybe 1 out of every 10 carpet stores I investigate are qualified to be on my preferred list. In some areas, I am unable to find any locally-owned stores worth recommending.

Buying new flooring from a reputable locally-owned store helps protect your investment, supports your local community and provides you with the excellent customer service you deserve. If you ever have a problem with your new carpet or flooring, a reputable dealer will be there to answer your call and address your problem without hesitation.

Every dealer on my preferred list has earned a solid reputation for having quality products, expert installation, competitive pricing and excellent customer service before, during and after the sale.
