Home Featured Post Retailers reveal the suppliers they win with

Strong retailers-supplier partnerships have always played a critical role in the success of flooring businesses. And that bond has only grown stronger as consumers spend less time in stores and want the selection process to be simple. As such, the retailer-supplier dynamic must be in sync on everything from product choice to installation and work together should any issues arise.
