Outlet Carpet & Flooring, is a family owned and operated second generation business that has been serving the carpet and hardsurface needs of our WNY neighbors, friends and families for over 55 years, however, under the current government order, we, like many other local businesses, are not considered an "essential businesses". National home centers, however, have been allowed to continue selling floorcovering, appliances, lighting, garden furniture, plants, etc. with very little or no restrictions, while locally-based stores like ours, that specialize in these items, have been mandated to close.
Installation houses that perform floorcovering installations for these national home centers have reported orders coming in at 10X more than normal activity. Any chance good local companies have of a post pandemic recovery, by complying with the rules, is being severely jeopardized by these stores being allowed to operate normally, under an arbitrary exemption that they are "hardware" stores.
The reality is that as long as this exemption remains in place, the national conglomerate home centers are being handed a license to print money while creating a recovery vacuum for NYS businesses from which many may never recover from.
We have been serving WNY's floorcovering needs since 1965. We were BORN in WNY. We LIVE in WNY. We're your neighbors and we're your family. All of our profits STAY HERE.
While this inequality exists, we are asking our loyal customers to band together and wait to make your floorcovering purchases until after we are allowed to open our showrooms again. Not JUST our business--but ALL LOCAL BUSINESSES that are an integral part of our what makes our community the special place it is.
It's a pretty simple process. Just print out the Buy Local Savings Coupon below. Bring the coupon into our store after we're opened again, and we'll GIVE you the first $100.00 of your purchase, including sale prices or closeout items. A few minor restrictions may apply but this is our way of saying "Thank You" for your business and to thank you for waiting for us.
Please Note: This coupon will be removed from our site as soon as we reopen. Be Safe. We WILL Get Through This TOGETHER.
