Why Your Local Flooring Store is Better Than Big Box Stores

Logo | Flowers Flooring

Shopping local is more than just a slick marketing campaign. It is a way to encourage shoppers to help support their local economy and community. The Small Business Administration reported that small businesses created 1.9 million net new jobs in 2015 and employed 58.9 million people.

In this blog post, Flowers Flooring will try to clear up some misconceptions that may prevent people from taking advantage of what small businesses have to offer. While big box stores in your area have more advertising and marketing dollars, they may not be the best choice for your latest home remodel or flooring project.

Better Selection

It is untrue that big box stores have a better selection of flooring than local flooring stores. In reality, big box stores only focus on a few types of flooring that give them the most bang for their profit. If you are looking for something unique, you’ll have much better luck checking out a local flooring sales and installation provider such as Flowers Flooring

If we don’t have exactly what you are looking for on our showroom floor, our sales associates are more than happy to special order samples for you to take home and view in your own lighting and with your décor. Local flooring stores offer personalized customer service that you simply will not find at a big box store.


Many homeowners decide to shop at big box stores because they assume it is where they will receive the lowest price. However, flooring prices are determined by vendors, not stores. The store is given a suggested price by the vendor and is discouraged from lowering the price unless the product does not sell.

Local flooring stores offer a wide selection of products at prices no more or less affordable than the big box stores. Small businesses like Flowers Flooring are also able to work with vendors to offer reduced prices during promotional events, just like the big box stores. Be sure to inquire about Flowers Flooring’s current promotional and financing offer when speaking with one of our experts.
