I always thought it would be a piece of cake to find a great carpet store, but when we ran into a disaster, and I saw that we would need some new carpet, I found that it was actually quite difficult to find a place that would be reasonably priced and have high quality carpet. Our awful disaster struck when our sewer drain backed up and overflowed, spewing more than a few inches of stinky water all over our basement floor.
The plumber fixed the problem, but we ended up with a lot of our belongings having to be trashed, and unfortunately, it seemed inevitable that we would have to replace the carpet. We had been so pleased with the carpet that we had had in the basement, so we figured that we would go back to the same store where we had gotten it many years ago, but we were disappointed to find that the store had closed and we would have to find a different one.
We didn’t think it would be too hard to find another carpet store, so we drove over to the closest carpet store, but we were not impressed with their selection and the salesperson we talked with was not helpful at all. We turned around and walked out, knowing that we would never go back there again, so we decided that we would have more luck if we looked on the Internet for a carpet store so that we could read some reviews and see which stores had a big selection and good prices.
After looking around a little bit, we found a website for a terrific store that carried some gorgeous carpet at really great prices, and all of their reviews were glowing. If anything, the reviews were too modest as when we walked in, we were treated to some outstanding service and customer care that really made us feel appreciated and helped remove the sting of having lost so much money on our backed up drain.
We found exactly what we were looking for and were thrilled that they could arrange to come in and install it soon after we had made our selection and had paid for it. Now, we are able to enjoy our basement again, and we appreciate being able to walk around barefoot on our soft new carpet and not have to worry about some disgusting water squishing out between our toes.
