Denver, CO (PRWEB) October 9, 2006
Quite often major carpet mills accidentally manufacture carpet that does not quite meet their internal specifications. The industry terms these special goods “Grade-A Mill Irregulars,” and makes them available on a limited basis to industry professionals. These Grade-A Mill Irregulars have imperfections so slight they are almost undetectable and can often be “cut out” prior to installation. If consumers know where to find these hidden gems, they can purchase the same top quality, name brand carpet being offered at traditional retail stores for up to 70% off.
For 35 years Scott Alban owned a retail floor covering business in Denver. He began to see the Denver Carpet retail business format changing. He closed his retail store to focus on a new way to sell carpet. Scott now focuses exclusively on offering his loyal customers a larger selection of Grade-A Mill Irregulars and Special Purchases from a low overhead warehouse.
Scott said, “One day I realized that most of my customers came in on weekends and I was paying a lot of money to maintain a large retail location all week long. I also saw an opportunity to offer customers a tremendous deal on great quality carpet. Why should people pay full retail when they can purchase Grade-A Irregulars for so much less? That is when I got the idea for our weekend carpet events. It is truly a new way to buy carpet, and the deals are so good we are seeing customers driving from Colorado Springs and beyond. The word is spreading.”
In November of 2005, Scott opened Sloane’s Carpet Secret in Denver, Colorado, and the response has been phenomenal. Scott goes on special buying trips each month to hand select the best Grade-A Mill Irregulars and stocks them in a low cost warehouse off I-70 and Peoria. In order to keep overhead as low as possible, the warehouse is opened to consumers only on weekends. By combining the incredible deals offered by Grade-A Irregulars with extremely low overhead, Scott is able to sell top of the line carpet that would normally sell for $50.00 a square yard for about $20.00 per square yard or good quality name brand carpet that would normally retail for $30.00 per square yard for as little as $10.00 per square yard.
Sloane’s Carpet Secret offers Colorado carpet buyers a unique opportunity to purchase Grade-A Mill Irregulars at substantial savings. They offer top quality, name brand carpet, padding, and installation through a network of master carpet installers. More information can be found at: http://www.sloanescarpetsecret.com
