location.  In our expansion, we'll offer customers
more selection, better pricing and centrally located in
Naperville.  More info to come.

5.5.08  Price Increase:  Recently, the 3 largest carpet
manufactures (Beaulieu, Shaw & Mohawk) raised
their carpet & padding costs due to the rise in
gasoline.  Unfortunately, our prices may reflect an
increase as well.
4.8.09  Hired:  Congrats out to our 2 newest
employees:  Steve has 39 years experience and

3.7.08  Addition:  We have fully integrated another
call station to our office in order to accommodate the
upcoming spring time rush.  We will be adding a 5th
phone line to help with the calls.  A sales staff will be
added this year to help with on-site new carpet sales
and estimates for carpet repairs.
3.5.08 Update:  Sales data has been compiled for
year to date (YTD). A growth of +102% increase over
last year has been logged, with individual department
sales increasing exponentially.  More and more of
our corporate accounts are trying to cut costs due to
this recession.  They realize it is more cost effective
to repair the carpet instead of replacing.  Since we
do both repairing OR replacing, our sales are
experiencing triple digit growth.
3.1.08  Announcement:  We welcome Lowe's Home
Center to our family. We will commence carpet
installation effective immediately and on a part-time
basis.  We currently install carpet for Home Depot
and Menards and local "mom & pop" stores.  
2.29.08  Leap Year day.  Why?  A calendar year is
365 days long.  It actually takes the earth 365 1/4
days to circle the sun.  Since we're not adding this
extra 1/4 day in our regular calendar, we need to
"make up" this 1/4 day in order to accurately track
the seasons, dates & time.  This 1/4 day is added
every 4 years (4 quarter days = 1 full day) to the
month of February making it 29 days instead of 28.  If
we didn't add this quarter day, every 40 years we
would be short 10 days OR every 120 years we
would be short 30 days; making our seasons, dates
& times incorrect.
2.4.08  Board members are all in favor of new pricing
specials for new carpet and padding.  "...As of today,
we are pleased to announce a new pricing plan for
our customers on new carpet and pad".  In a
unanimous vote and for immediate release, a
"Recession Special" will go into effect on all new
carpet & padding.  This is to counter the effects of
this 'recession' everyone is talking about.
