FLINT — The team at Flint Carpet Company has a philosophy: No gimmicks, just great savings every day. This year, as the business enters its 70th year serving the Flint area, that philosophy is as present and prominent as ever. And, along with their 70th anniversary, Flint Carpet has a number of other new and exciting changes to report, including new ownership and a redesigned showroom with a whole lot more than just carpet.

Though the business may be experiencing some changes, new owner Tim Look assures his customers that the team at Flint Carpet will uphold their promise to work extremely hard to ensure the highest quality and timeliest service, all at your best value.

“I’ve been here at Flint Carpet a total of nearly 30 years over a couple different stints,” said Look, who maintains his commitment to serving the area in which he’s lived and worked for decades. “I was thrilled to be able to take over, because it’s such a great opportunity. The store itself started in 1948, and we have such a great history with Flint and the surrounding areas. We’ve built such a solid reputation for our customer service, for being fair and treating people right. That’s not going to change.”

The business, first opened on Saginaw St. in downtown Flint, moved to its current location in the 1970s and has seen substantial growth since. Over the years, the business decided to take on more flooring options besides just carpet. Now, along with hundreds of carpet options, customers can choose from a huge selection of name-brand luxury vinyl and designer flooring.

Flint Carpet is the home of premium flooring brands that will bring an unparalleled level of wonder to your home, including Karastan, Karndean Design Flooring, Mowhawk, Shaw Floors and Stainmaster Carpet. Their selection provides a plethora of options for all tastes and any room of your home.

The team at Flint Carpet also offers free in-home consultations, bringing the showroom right to you. “We pride ourselves on our customer service before, during and after the sale,” said Look. “Our professional installers are second to none, ensuring that your flooring is installed in the perfect and most timely fashion. The core values and principles instilled in us will remain the same. We’re customer-based, and we want to maintain that quality.”

“Also, we can offer things to our customers that big box stores just can’t,” continued Look. “Most people go to a big box store because of lower prices, but if you make any kind of mistake on a purchase that’s not the right fit, that’s going to cost you. A lot. We make sure that’s not going to happen. We offer the right product that will last longer and will save you even more money in the long run. Flint Carpet is the better way to buy. Big box stores may have flooring, but we are flooring. This is what we do.”

Flint Carpet is located at 4285 Miller Rd. in Flint. For more information, visit www.flintcarpetco.com or call 810-732-5210.
