Our History

We began as Arcade Linoleum Company in 1936.  We were located in the Arcade Theater Building in the Hamilton area of Baltimore MD.  By 1939, we outgrew that location and moved to a new building on Harford Road near Broadway.  From 1939 to 1961 we occupied more and more of that new building until once again we ran out of space.  In 1961, we moved to our current location on Loch Raven Boulevard in Towson.  As we continued to grow, we added an addition to the building for office space and more warehousing and took over the second of the three stores in the building.

When we moved to the Towson location, we changed the name to Arcade Floors because vinyl was replacing linoleum as the hard surface flooring of choice.  In the early 1960’s when tufting made carpet more affordable, we added carpet  to our offering and added “& Carpets” to our name.  From the outset, we had a very strong relationship with Armstrong.  Arcade Floors & Carpets was Armstrong’s first Floor Fashion Center in the country and a few years later, the first Armstrong Carpet Studio.

In addition to our residential work, we were doing a substantial quantity of work for Baltimore area home builders.  Prefinished hardwood floors were becoming popular with builders and naturally we expanded into hardwood floor installations.


flooring showroom baltimore md Our Showroom, Circa 1940  The Baltimore Gas & Electric Company (Now BGE Home) went into the home improvement business in the 1980’s.  Arcade Floors & Carpets was selected as their floor contractor.  At their insistence, we entered the ceramic tile arena. By the 1990’s, we were offering one of the most outstanding selections of vinyl floors, carpet, hardwood floors, and ceramic tile in Baltimore Maryland.

In 1992, we were invited to join Carpet One.  Carpet One is a co-operative of fine flooring retailers.  To be invited was an honor.  It meant you had to be in the top 3% of flooring retailers in the country.  We were judged on volume, credit worthiness, and reputation among suppliers, customers, and existing Carpet One members.  As part of Carpet One, we can offer our customers vast selections of all kinds of flooring products at the best prices with warranties that far exceed any in the industry.  To express our pride in being part of Carpet One, the largest flooring retail group in the world, we changed our name again. We became Arcade Floors Carpet One.
