Randy Thornton, owner of Randy’s Carpet Plus, is getting ready to film another commercial for his 22-year old business and has a list of sales and specials ready to beam across the television cameras.
One thing that’s absent from the script, and has been for more than two decades, is a slogan.
Not only does the Rockdale and Newton serving carpet business not have a slogan, but there is no logo to go along with the community mainstay.
Thornton has run his company by his own slogan for the last 22 years, "We just do business."
Randy’s Carpet Plus makes available carpets, hardwood, laminate, ceramic tile and vinyl flooring at what Thornton says is below the prices of the big box stores.
"We’ve got 22 years of satisfied customers," Thornton said. "That’s pretty strong that we’re still here."
Some of the specials available for flooring are prices up to 60 percent off, 12-month interest-free financing, 50-year warranty on hardwoods and lifetime warranties on carpets and a shop-at-home service.
"We just treat our customers right," Thornton said.
The employees at Randy’s Carpet Plus have plenty of experience in treating their customers right, with a combined 100 years among the 12 person staff.
Thornton has been in the carpet business since his first job as an installer at the age of 15.
"All of our people are very knowledgeable," Thornton said. "Everybody is pretty experienced."
The store located on 2280 Dogwood Dr. is open from Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. until 5:30 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m.
