Grigsby’s Carpet, Tile & Rug Gallery has a goal of providing each customer with the highest quality carpet products that will beautify their home, meet specific performance and budget needs, provide easy care, and stand the test of time. To this end, Grigsby’s is joining in the 25th anniversary celebration of Stainmaster® Carpets. Grigsby’s is featuring specials on Stainmaster that kicked off in July and will run through the end of 2011.
According to Grigsby’s director of operations, Penny Carnino, “Stainmaster Ultra Life Carpets have a proven track record with designed-in technology supporting their complete line of stain-resistant products and their ability to last longer. Claims without the track record may not be true.” As the saying goes, Stainmaster Carpets are always stylish and always beautiful. And it’s nice to know that Stainmaster Carpet’s limited warranties cover all food and beverage stains – with no exclusions whatsoever, including hot beverages. How’s that for peace of mind? You can learn all about Stainmaster Carpets, along with their countless features and benefits, by visiting the website at www.stainmaster.com.
Grigsby’s Stainmaster Flooring Center features Ultra Life Carpet with an extended warranty exclusive to Grigsby’s in this area. “When you consider this extra benefit,” says Carnino, “it really does make a difference where you buy your Stainmaster Carpet.”
If you’re considering new carpet for your home, you’ll want to visit the Grigsby’s state-of-the-art website, www.grigsbys.com, and learn how you can shoot a photo of any room in your home, download it to the designated program, and start designing to see how the selected room will look with varying colors, styles, and textures of Stainmaster Carpet. This is a really cool program that will also save you a lot of time when you’re ready to visit Grigsby’s. If you prefer not to photograph your own room, you can make a room selection from many pho- tographs featured on the website. Either way, once you head to the store you will already have a good idea of the Stainmaster Carpet styles you like, and you’ll be able to test them on various carpet pads. A special kiosk permits pads to be placed side by side with your carpet selection on top, and you can actually do a stand-on-and-wiggle-your- toes test.
When you’re shopping the right carpet for your home or office, Carnino suggests you pay close attention to the fiber makeup of the products you’re considering. Stainmaster Ultra Life Carpet features a superior fiber called nylon 6, 6. According to Stainmaster, this fiber has a molecular structure designed for strength and is one of the reasons their carpet lasts up to 50 percent longer than other carpets. (Results are based on testing of a statistically representative sample of carpets of comparable construction, styles and colors). Stainmaster products also boast several patented fiber shapes, each engineered with a specific performance or aesthetic goal in mind.
Grigsby’s Carpet, Tile & Rug Gallery wants to make sure you understand, learn about, and experience as much about carpet as you want to know. Carpet has long been the choice of many homeowners and, in fact, remains the most popular floor covering choice. You will have a feeling of assurance as you call upon the experience and knowledge of Grigsby’s outstanding sales and design staff. They are eager to listen, make suggestions, and help you reach a decision that will enable you to select the carpet that will satisfy all your comfort and design needs.
