New York -– Shaw Floors is restoring the Grand Central Terminal and is unveiling more than 14,000 square feet of its carpet, hardwood and resilient floors during a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the Grand Central Terminal Holiday Fair in Vanderbilt Hall today.
One million people pass through Grand Central Terminal each day of the holiday season, totaling tens of millions of steps on flooring from presenting sponsor Shaw Floors during the six-week fair.
“Just like our homes, the floors of Grand Central Terminal are put to the test each day with kids, messes and weather,” said Randy Merritt, president of Shaw Floors.
“Design and durability have been at the core of Shaw Floors and Grand Central Terminal for decades, setting a strong foundation for this year’s partnership in one of the busiest rooms in the world.”
Each piece of flooring installed throughout Vanderbilt Hall and at Terminal entrances was selected to complement the iconic architecture of the historic building.
