Owners Wayne and Nancy Kirby

Carpet One Floor & Home has provided floor covering in the Midlands for 37 years. Nancy and Wayne Kirby are the owners of Carpet One and take great pride in customer service. From 1975-1986, Nancy was a business teacher in Richland School District 2. Wayne spent 14 years with Milliken and Co. working in manufacturing and selling floor covering. In 1987, Wayne joined the Carpet One Co-Op of America — which is now called CCA Global Partners — becoming the 86th dealer. Today the co-op has grown to more than 1,000 stores and is the largest purchaser of retail flooring in the world. Together, Nancy and Wayne form an experienced ownership team. Nancy says their sales associates are extensively trained and their installers are longtime employees who strive to make installation go smoothly.

With the unrivaled buying power of CCA Global, Wayne says they proudly offer the best selection of floor covering, the most competitive prices, and the best warranties in the industry. For example, they offer guaranteed lowest price on equal value products. The Beautiful Guarantee states: If, for any reason, customers do not like their chosen carpet or certain approved luxury vinyl plank, hardwoods, or vinyl, Carpet One will replace it free of charge for an equal value choice. And, in some cases, the installation charges are also covered. The Lifetime Installation Warranty on carpet provides: If a customer’s carpet wrinkles, or if seams come apart, Carpet One will fix the problem for free.

Carpet One is constantly searching to bring new and innovative floor covering products to the market. The latest is Regency Flooring, an exclusive Luxury Vinyl Plank flooring that Wayne says is the best he has ever seen. Regency Flooring is 100 percent waterproof and is guaranteed not to cup or buckle. Visit their revolutionary showroom on Candi Lane for a close-up view of their products.

“We are excited to continue serving the Midlands with two Columbia locations. And that is why we say, ‘With the best selection of flooring, the best prices, and the best guarantees in the industry, why go anywhere else?’”
