When you think about buying new floors for your home, what’s your first thought? Do you think about what type of flooring you want – hardwood or luxury vinyl plank (LVP), carpet or tile? Or are you looking for the best deal? Do you think the only options for buying flooring are the big box stores because they must have the biggest selection? Right? Wrong. It’s time to start thinking outside the “big box” and look to your local retailer. You might be surprised just how much you get when you step outside the box.
Selection, Selection, Selection
Flooring Depot of Panama City, a locally owned and operated retailer with the largest selection of flooring in Bay County, offers a number of top national brands including Mohawk, MSI, Florida Tile, Karastan, Armstrong, Engineered Floors, Southwind, Marquis and many others. The store is full of options, not just one small section, delegated to the back of a “big box.” Whether you are looking for hardwood, luxury vinyl flooring or carpet, the color options and brands are numerous. Flooring Depot even allows you to take home a sample so that you can see the color and style in your space before you order. Just check out the sample and bring it back when you are done.
Budget and Price
When you begin to look for floors make sure you know two things – approximately how much you are going to need and your budget. Don’t worry about getting your measurements exactly right. A member of our installation team will do more precise measurements once you select your product. But for the purpose of buying, knowing how much you need allows you to look at options that keep you in your desired budget.
Don’t be shy about sharing your budget with your salesperson. They can best help you if they know exactly what you are looking to do and how much you want to spend. Not only is our selection second to none, but our prices are competitive. We will meet or beat most box store quotes. Working one-on-one with a salesperson in a locally owned and operated business means there is flexibility in pricing to stay within your budget.
Knowledge and Customer Service
Purchasing flooring is a long-term investment. So, you want to choose a retailer that is both knowledgeable about the products they carry, but also provides prompt and expert customer service. Our professional sales staff is highly trained and only sells flooring. They aren’t stretched department to department. They are experts and can help you get the absolute best product for your money.
Do you think only big box stores offer in-store financing? Flooring Depot of Panama City offers a Direct to Device financing program through Synchrony Bank. If you are interested in pursuing this option, we will send you a code directly to your tablet or phone where you will apply for in-store credit. We don’t see your information, only Synchrony does. They work to approve your application quickly so that you can immediately begin shopping using your approval to purchase the product you want.
Are you a DIYer that’s comfortable installing a floor or are you one that wouldn’t know a level if it smacked you in the hand? Tons of customers fall into both categories. If you’re a DIYer, our sister store, Coastal Flooring Supplies, (located right next door to Flooring Depot) has all the items you need. The sales staff there can guide you in selecting the best supplies for your project.
If you’d rather have our experts do the heavy lifting, then we’ll schedule your installation once your products arrive. All you need to do is open your home, and we’ll take care of the rest. Our installations come with a one-year guarantee.
