Denver — Sloane’s Carpet Secret of Denver provided the Schauerhamer family of Castle Rock, Colo., with free carpet, pad and installation for winning the Denver retailer’s Best Stories Facebook contest.
“This was a good experience for the company,” said Sloane’s owner Scott Alban. “We’re considering doing more promotions like this in the future and we’re likely to focus increasingly on helping charities and nonprofits our community.”
The winning “story” submitted by the Schauerhamers provided a light, humorous and relatable focus on the inevitable wear and tear borne by carpet resting beneath the feet of a growing family:
“If any carpet has been put to the test, it is ours. For the last 10 years it has been beaten and abused by four kids. It has been through art projects, backyard muddy messes, ‘creative’ wall painting, potty training and sick kids. This carpet really deserves to be put out of its misery!”
The Schauerhamers are repeat Sloane’s Carpet Secret customers.
Sloan’s Carprt Secret has been a Denver retailer since 1979. “We are committed to helping people live better within a budget,” Alban said. “Carpet is a perfect place to start saving money while personalizing your home.”
