Stop in at Mill Creek Flooring Outlet and visit with Manager John Hutton.
Mill Creek first opened doors for business in 1934. Headquartered in Tulsa, the company is still family-owned with locations in Oklahoma, Texas and Kansas. “Mill Creek is the region’s largest and best known center for home improvement,” says Mill Creek Flooring Outlet Manager John Hutton. “The Flooring Outlet supplies carpet, engineered hardwood, laminate flooring, light fixtures, roll vinyl (linoleum), vinyl planks and squares. We also stock tile for floors and walls including ceramic and natural stone.” The Flooring Outlet sells to homeowners and commercial patrons and carries lots of brand-name products at very attractive prices.
“Basically, the Mill Creek Flooring Outlet functions to liquidate overages, remnants and overstocked products from our main retail stores,” said John, “and many of those items are name brands.” They have tons of carpet remnants that may be perfect for your home improvement project. “Many of our customers are putting new flooring in just one room. Some own rental properties,” said John, “and some buy and ‘flip’ homes. Many of our high quality products are sold at 50 percent off and some, available in limited quantities, are marked down up to 80 percent off.”
When you shop the Flooring Outlet, you’re going to find a lot of selection all under one roof. Just keep in mind that many of the products will be available only in remnants or smaller quantities.
John says inventories at the Mill Creek Flooring Outlet change weekly. Store personnel will help you load your materials, but you must provide the trailer or truck and tie-downs. “If you’re not a do-it-yourselfer, we can recommend a professional installer to get your project done,” said John. When you choose professional help for your project, they will generally pick up your materials, deliver them to the work site and do the installation.
Store hours for the Mill Creek Flooring Outlet are Monday through Thursday from 9 to 6 and Friday and Saturday from 9 to 5.
The Mill Creek Flooring Outlet takes pride in their knowledgeable, experienced showroom sales staff. They represent many years in the flooring business and are eager to assist you with qualified advice on your project and make recommendations they believe you will enjoy. “We love to assist area homeowners who are seeking a great value as they begin their home remodeling project to provide comfort, style and visual appeal to their home for many years to come,” said John.
