   McGrath Flooring Center in New Haven recently purchased Champlain Valley Floor Covering in Brandon.

   McGrath Flooring Center owners Mike and Sarah McGrath (pictured above) explained that the sale will be a win win situation for both stores and their current and future customers.

   “We were looking to expand our commercial carpeting business.  Pete Felkil and Mike Sweatt were doing a nice job building up their commercial flooring business at Champlain Valley Floor Covering in the Brandon area over the last five years,” Mike McGrath explained.  

   Felkil and Sweatt will remain with McGrath Flooring Center in New Haven bringing with them a wealth of commercial flooring installation and marketing skills.

   Both Mike and Sarah McGrath are familiar with running successful businesses over the years and enjoy working together in the business.

   “We’re excited about the possibilities this will create,” Sarah McGrath said when asked about the recent purchase of Champlain Valley Floor Covering.

   McGrath Flooring Center currently features several hundred thousand square feet of carpeting in stock at their New Haven showroom.

   Some of the best deals being offered are in their in-stock-styles-Cash & Carry selection.

   Professional delivery and expert installation however is always available as an popular option in this full service flooring business.

   The McGrath’s are keenly aware of consumer demands and they explained
that they will continue to meet those demands with a store policy to sell “only from the best manufacturers, with excellent warranties, and a hands-on approach that guarantees customer satisfaction.

   “Warehouse and pallet pricing guarantee great prices regardless of quantity,” they explain on their website,

   From helping residential do-it-yourselfers, to complete professional commercial installation, the McGrath’s feel confident that they can continue to meet the needs of customers in their service area well into the future.

   McGrath Flooring Center has evolved over a twenty-plus year period of time.  Mike’s father Jim opened the business as Upper Room Design.  Sarah and Mike renamed the business McGrath Flooring Center when they bought the business from Jim and they have been growing the business ever since adding many new products and services plus additional staff along the way.

   “We want to continue to add new things over time.  So don’t think that you’ve seen it all!” Mike says with a smile.
