Benefits of Shopping Local Flooring

Benefits of Shopping Local Flooring

Posted on

Today’s flooring retailers are almost as varied as the number of flooring products, and choosing who to go to can be overwhelming. Luckily, the best option is often right around the corner at your locally owned flooring store! Here’s why you should choose to shop local for your flooring needs!


1. Support Local.

When you shop local, more of your money stays in your area. Local store owners generate more local taxes, provide more support for local nonprofit groups, create more jobs for local citizens and do more to encourage local entrepreneurship. When you personally know the people behind the business where you’re buying local products and services, you enjoy a connection you would not otherwise have. Local business owners often have incentive to support other local businesses, patronizing local establishments for both business and personal reasons. Did you know that The Tile Superstore & more has been a local business in Rochester for over 20 years?


2. Better Selection.

Most local flooring stores offer an even larger selection than their national counterparts. National chains focus on volume, selling a few of the most popular items in each category rather than offering a wide range. And local shops usually have access to even more products than those displayed. If you don’t see what you’re looking for, be sure to ask! At the Tile Superstore & more, we have over 600,000 sq ft. of tile in stock!


3. Better Customer Service.

The best part of shopping local is often the quality customer service. Local stores depend heavily on repeat sales and customer referrals, so they work harder to meet and exceed your expectations. When you shop local, the business owner is usually directly connected to every employee in the store. That leads to a personal approach that often means any problem you have is taken seriously. At the Tile Superstore & more, we even provide additional services such as free in-home consulting and measuring, interior design assistance and professional installation for a highly personalized shopping experience!


4. Better Pricing.

Shopping at a local flooring store does not mean you’ll pay more for the same product. Local retailers tend to focus on quality rather than volume, so they often carry a wider selection of higher grade products for customers who can afford it. However they also provide less expensive options for price-conscious shoppers. We price our tile at manufacturer prices to help you save money!


“Shop local” is more than just a slick marketing slogan. When you shop your local flooring store, you’ll save money, get to choose from a wider selection, and receive excellent customer service that will keep you coming back! When you support local business owners, you get a better level of service, as well as helping make your community a better place to live.
