The Floor Store Has Been Serving the Tipton Area for Nearly 30 Years
With many people working from home these days, many homeowners are looking around their houses and realizing they need new floor.
This makes Steve Swan, co-owner of The Floor Store in Tipton, very happy.
“There is really a lot of strong interest in waterproof vinyl flooring right now,” Swan says. “It’s really popular. It’s the hottest thing on the market. It doesn’t scratch easily. It’s dominating the flooring business.”
Swan says parents or kids using kitchen tables as workspaces need a good floor to handle the messes that can happen in the course of a day.
“The waterproof vinyl flooring is easy to maintain,” Swan says. “If kids spill something, or the dog makes a mess, it’s much easier to clean up.”
Swan says that when COVID-19 began to force people indoors more frequently, it also inspired many people to make some positive changes to their homes.
“People that were too busy to make a change to their home before realized that they wanted something new.” Swan says. “They want to make their home office, living room or kitchen a nicer area to relax in. They decided to get new floors, and that has kept us busy.”
Swan says loyal customers have kept The Floor Store moving in the right direction ever since they opened.
“My wife Carolyn and I started The Floor Store in 1992,” Swan says. “We have a really strong customer base. We have had different generations of families come to us, which is a nice feeling. They tell their family members and friends about us, and that has helped us grow. We also help people find the right floor that fits their budget.”
Swan’s knowledge of flooring has helped the store succeed.
“I have been installing floors since 1974,” he says. “I have a strong background in installation, and that gives me a unique perspective on what is good, quality flooring.”
Swan says The Floor Store also provides quality flooring installation service after customers make their purchase. He stresses that the people installing floors are the last key part of the flooring process.
“I always say they are the last salesmen,” Swan says. “I want the customers to know the installers did a great, high-quality job on their floors.”
Swan says The Floor Store has a wide selection of high-quality carpet, tile, hardwood, area rugs and more.
“We have great salesmen that will help you select the best flooring products that reflect your personal style,” Swan says. “We can help you with colors and finishes that will suit your taste and budget.”
Swan credits the Tipton community with helping The Floor Store become a fixture in the area.
“Carolyn and I just love it here,” Swan says. “You just can’t beat the friendly people in Tipton. Everyone here looks out for each other, and there is a real sense of community.”
