BURLINGTON, Ontario, Feb. 2 /CNW/ -- Giant Carpet and Flooring Ltd.
recently closed all of its 12 stores in the area, presumably leaving a number
of customers without flooring on which they had already placed an order and
put down a deposit. As a small business owner himself, Jim Mathewson -- owner
of Floor Coverings International (FCI) in Burlington -- knows running a
business isn't easy right now and he sympathizes with the owners of Giant
Carpet and Flooring and to help any customers of Giant Carpet whose orders
were left unfilled, Floor Coverings International is offering a free
consultation as well as a price match of Giant's quote with an equivalent
product and an additional 15 percent off the quote.
"People just need to bring in their Giant Carpet order form and we will
take care of the rest," said Mathewson. "Combined with the new government
incentive which offers a 15 percent tax break on any home renovation up to
$10,000, this is a great deal."
Floor Coverings International will also offer Giant Carpet and Flooring
customers no interest and no payments for six months on all purchases so they
can get their flooring installed right away without having to outlay the cash,
allowing them to work on getting any lost money back from Giant Carpet. Other
FCI franchisees following Mathewson's lead include Jason Nicols in Mississauga
and Angus Cole in Ottawa.
Mathewson launched Floor Coverings International in June 2006. Floor
Coverings International is one of North America's leading floor-covering
retailers, offering more than 3,000 flooring options from the top brands in
flooring at competitive prices. In addition to professional design centers,
the company uses mobile showrooms to bring flooring samples to customers'
homes. Floor Coverings International products include carpet, hardwood,
laminates, luxury vinyl, ceramic tile and area rugs.
Floor Coverings International operates more than 80 franchises in about
30 states and Canada. Projections call for 30 franchises to be added in 2009.
