I can't always help them, but sometimes I can refer someone

Home Builder with The Flooring Girl


Over the weekend, I got many email requests on my website, and one of them was for someone moving to Ulster County, looking for a recommendation on a trusted flooring store.  Well Floor Coverings International is nationwide, so, I recommended my trusted friends in Orange County to help him.  http://orangecountyny.floorcoveringsinternational.com/

We are nation-wide (and in Canada, too) and we continue to grow and add new locations every quarter. There over 100 of us across the US and Canada.  If you're looking for an expert in flooring, see if there is a Floor Coverings International near you.

We recently added locations to Cleveland OH, Dayton OH and New Foundland and Saskatchewan, Canada

I hope this is helpful for you and your clients.

Not that it matters??  Or does it?  John Henson has located his store in North Carolina, Shallotte.

Not sure if he still has one in Myrtle Beach??

Wow Debbie. I had no idea. Are you each individually owned and operated?

Frank & Karen - Thx for the heads up...I'll have to find out.

Connie - Yes, we are all individually owned.  We try to operate in a similar fashion, but we each have our own ways of marketing and optimizing.

All - this is cool...Another Active Rainer called me today and was able to refer her client to one of my friends.


All - just to be clear..there are no referral fees here.  I'm just trying to help you and help them.  I know they will take good care of your clients.  I know most of them...there are a few that just started this year and I'll meet them in Jan, but I know everyone else.
