Sixty-four years ago, Felix and Bluma Goldgerg immigrated to the United States after surviving the atrocities of the Holocaust. Felix found employment as a tile setter’s helper. In less than 10 years, through hard work and determination, Felix opened his own business: “The Tile and Carpet Center.” The business flourished! Today, the Goldberg family continues to own and operate “Tile Center, Inc.,” employing the same traditional values and work ethics that Felix and Bluma exemplified.
Tile Center boasts the largest ceramic, porcelain and stone showroom in the Midlands. The large in-stock selection provides a variety of options for immediate purchase. In addition, through Tile Center’s many vendors, special orders may be supplied within days. The Tile Center staff prides themselves on their individualized customer service. Their experienced and talented design staff will bring your space to life from start to finish, while working within your budget.
“Today’s market is tough for small business owners. We have to offer something that ‘big box’ stores and Internet companies can’t provide. That ‘something’ is the special one-on-one customer service and attention to detail that we provide to each person that walks into our showroom — no matter their budget. We could not have survived for almost 60 years without this goal,” says owner, Karl Goldberg.
Tile Center, Inc. has two locations to serve you. The flagship store in Columbia is located at 2517 Two Notch Rd., the same location since its incorporation in 1959. The other location is in Florence, S.C., serving the Pee Dee area for more than 20 years, at 3203 W. Palmetto St.
Drop in for a visit (no appointment necessary) to see the expansive showroom and experience what true customer service is all about. You will never leave disappointed.
