Carpet Unlimited opened its North Branch store in early April at 6372 Main Street, site of the former bakery.
Store manager Desarae Doerr said the new location is the first to branch away from the original Pine City store, which has been meeting people’s flooring and home decor needs for three decades.
A Mohawk color center, Carpet Unlimited almost exclusively sells the Mohawk brand. This allows the store buying power in keeping costs low for the customer, Doerr explained.
Mohawk is known for its stain-proof Triexta carpet, which consists of a high performance fiber made, in part, with corn-based petroleum. “They haven’t found anything to stain it,” said Doerr, noting not even spaghetti sauce, red wine, paint or even pets can penetrate the carpet.
Carpet Unlimited offers more than just a wide selection of carpet styles. Customers in search of vinyl, tile, wood and laminate flooring won‘t be disappointed. You may also be pleased with the store’s selection of blinds, cabinets, granite countertops and Cambria countertops.
Looking for creative ideas along with the goods to complete your home project? Then call on Doerr and her years of experience in flooring and interior design. She knows what questions to ask; she’s willing to make home visits; she will measure, provide quotes and walk you through the installation process; and she could save you money along the way.
While a grand opening is in the works, customers can take advantage of a few specials. Get free installation when you purchase $35 per square yard or more, and enjoy $100 off per $1,000 spent. Contact the store for details.
