We thank our loyal customers for over 27 great years.
Carpet Express was founded in January 1991, when local businessman Murray Bandy purchased a mom-and-pop outlet store named Worth Carpet. During the early years, approximately 90% of our business was carpet and carpet accessories. The main objective of the store was to offer wholesale carpet prices to individuals across the country. Over the years, Carpet Express has grown to become a full service wholesale flooring center specializing in hardwood flooring,laminate flooring, discount carpet , area rugs, discount vinyl flooring , and other resilient flooring, such as ceramic tile and porcelain.
In 1995, Mike Jones joined Carpet Express as General Manager. Mike has a long history with all aspects of the floor covering industry, with a strong emphasis in hardwood flooring and vinyl. Over the past 15 years, Mike has helped establish Carpet Express as one of the Top 100 Floor Covering Stores in the country.
Carpet Express has experienced steady growth over the last 18 years. In 1998, we added a distribution center located at Connector 3 in Dalton. In 1999, we added a new showroom and offices to our original location, on Market Street. In 2003, we opened a new showroom and warehouse near our distribution center. In 2010, Carpet Express opened an additional showroom and warehouse at Connector 3.
Although we have grown tremendously, our sales philosophy has remained the same. Know your products, and treat your customers right. Treat them with the same respect and honesty that you would like to be treated.
