Retailers of the Year 2022: Treasure Coast, Bob Wagner’s Flooring America

shopkeeper of the yearSpecialty flooring retailers are the driving force behind this industry. Their success fuels every channel from residential retail to commercial. To honor these companies, FCNews publishes its inaugural Retailers of the Year edition. It is an attempt to draw attention to those retailers who excel or distinguish themselves in some aspect of their business. In this issue, suppliers and vendors nominated retailers they think deserve a mention and why they stand out from the crowd.

FCNewsThe 2022 edition of Retailers of the Year features some of the industry’s most experienced dealers from influential buying groups and smaller retailers without group membership. In other words, it reflects retail as a whole.

When choosing their top retailer partners, suppliers looked beyond sales volume to other key attributes such as communication skills, trust, corporate culture and even benevolence as differentiators. Suppliers/sellers nominated up to four retailers (or in some cases distributors) for consideration and explained why they stood out. FCNews then narrowed down the winners based on the scope of merit awarded to each.

Visit every day this week and next as a new winner of the Retailers of the Year edition will be presented. Today’s highlight is The Dixie Group nominations and winners: Treasure Coast Carpet and Interiors and Bob Wagner’s Flooring America.

What The Dixie Group had to say:

After running their family store in South Dakota, Jerry and Judy Hardin decided to move to South Florida. That’s where the Hardins started this company 33 years ago in 1989.

Fast forward to today, Treasure Coast Carpet and Interiors is a family business run by the Hardins and their three daughters: Jill, Julie and Joy along with their other team members. This family-owned flooring store sells a diverse selection of carefully curated high-quality products in a 4,000-square-foot showroom, complete with personal, one-on-one advice to ensure customers go home with the flooring option that’s ideal for them.

The multi-million dollar company also shared that more than 90% of its customers come from referrals from previous customers who have had a seamless, enjoyable experience and want to spread the word. In addition, the team completely redesigned their showroom in 2020, creating a beautiful and pleasant environment.

Treasure Coast handles all aspects of the job from production selection to installation. It also uses its own contractors. These expert installers specialize in different areas from wood, carpet and blinds. Treasure Coast Carpet and Interiors is the main dealer in the market and supports all brands of The Dixie Group: Dixie Home, Masland and Fabrica. In 2022, our business doubled from 2021 as the company continued to support our growth strategy by adding and driving the Fabrica Wood and LVF products, culminating in the XXL. In 2022, Treasure Coast Carpet and Interiors added the 1866 and Decor product lines to our main displays. This will only continue our growth strategy going forward.
