What's a Cooperative... Really?
Here are some interesting statistics. 1500 Americans were surveyed and only 12% of them really knew what a cooperative is. The second statistic was more interesting. Once those surveyed were told what a cooperative was, 78% said they would prefer to buy from a cooperative than a big box store. Hey, Y'all. Guess what? We're a Cooperative. We're Carpet One.
Okay, so what is a cooperative and why is it good for you, the customer? A cooperative is a business form just as a corporation, a partnership, or a sole proprietor is. It is really a simple business form.
A cooperative is group of similar businesses, usually locally owned and operated and many times Mom and Pop companies, who own the company to which they belong? The cooperative. Why would a cooperative be good for the consumer? We buy our products from the manufacturers as a group at prices just as good as the biggest of the big box stores. We buy our supplies and services such as phone service, office supplies, waste removal, freight, financing, etc. as a group. We are able to negotiate with our manufacturers for warranties that are superior to those offered by the big box stores and even those offered by the manufacturers on their own products. What's the bottom line? The big boxes make all kinds of wild offers but when you add up all their extra charges and you compare their final price to ours, you will find our price is just as low, if not lower than the big box store.
Now you ask, if the price is about the same, what difference does it make if I buy from the big box or the cooperative? First is the personal service you receive from a locally owned and operated store. Our flooring consultants are far better trained than those at the big box stores. Most of them do know even know the basics such as the difference between nylon, polyester, or olefin. It's not their fault. Last week they were selling paint. Our consultants are professionals. Here are the big differences between a cooperative and the big box stores. Being locally owned, we are the ones who are hiring your friends, relatives and neighbors and our profits are being plowed back into our community instead of being sent to New York or Chicago.
Cooperatives have a unique advantage of having ideas not from just a few upper management people but from hundreds of business people. Carpet One's Beautiful Guarantee is a perfect example: If you don't love your new Carpet One floor or carpet, we'll replace it FREE including installation. Only Carpet One offers the Healthier Living Installation System that kills mold, mildew, dust mites, bacteria, and allergens.
Have a Choice!
In recent years, the retail flooring
industry has become extremely polarized. On one end are the large home centers
and the large shop at home companies that saturate your TV screens with incredible
installation offers. Most of those offers sound too good to be true and you know
what they say about things that sound too good to be true. Even the most sophisticated
consumer has to be impressed by the offers, Buy one room, get another room free;
Buy two rooms and get your whole house free.

The Carpet One Story
Carpet One is a cooperative of more than 1000 flooring
retailers nationwide. Only the very best retailers are selected
for membership in Carpet One. We purchase as a group and we market
as a group. As the largest flooring retail group in the world, our
buyers can negotiate the best prices and the best warranties from our
manufacturers. In fact, Carpet One warranties, which are backed
by the manufacturers, actually exceed the warranties manufacturers offer
on their own products. Because of our size, many of our products
are made exclusively for Carpet One. What is really unique about
Carpet One is that despite our size, each store is locally owned and operated,
many family owned and operated. You have the benefits achieved through
size but the service and caring of a neighbor. In addition to the
stores in the United States, there are Carpet One stores in Canada, Australia,
and New Zealand. During 2010, Carpet One is celebrating its 30th Anniversary.
Only Carpet One can offer the powerful Beautiful Guarantee.
Our number one commitment to you is that you will be happy with the floor
you purchase from us and if you are not, we’ll replace it – FREE.
It’s that simple. It’s that strong. Period!
