Joe's wife Anne has been with the store from Day One. She's also the one that keeps us all on our toes! She has done it all at The Floor Store. For the last ten years, she has worked full time at Riverbrook Residence in Stockbridge, mostly because she loves the work and all the women who live there, and she had volunteered there for many years before joining the staff there. But she's still starts and ends her days at The Floor Store. She still oversees the books, pays the bills, and spends all day Saturday here to help keep us all in line.
From Left To Right: Joe (Son), Mary, Anne and Joe (Dad)
Joe Roy (The Dad) has been in the business for over 40 years and is still involved in many of the jobs at The Floor Store. He can help you in the store with your selection; and can be the one who will come to your home to size up the work you need to have done (but you might also get son Joe...)
Son Joe has been working full time at The Floor Store for many years now. He can do everything that Dad does, plus a few very specific things that only he does best. He has become amazing in the sales department. He attends seminars, installation schools, mill trips, and is as well versed on flooring product knowledge and installation techniques as anyone can be. Since he has an extensive background and a degree in computer repair and networking, the computers at the store have never been so seamlessly integrated. He works with Anne with the bookkeeping and data entry as well. He receives all deliveries and prepares shipping; does most of the delivering, much of the custom binding; and maintains the warehouse inventory. He handles many of the store customers. He knows the products very well and understands the various installations because he started helping his Dad when he was a small boy. He had also worked with the installing teams through many summers when he was in school. He truly started on the ground floor of the business and knows how it works.
Son Joe's wife Mary has picked up the slack since Anne can't be here on weekdays. She also helps her husband when he has too much to do. Beside taking orders directly from her sons Alex and Zac, she maintains and updates samples and price lists in the store, pulls drops and adds new samples, keeps track and posts sale signs, updates the samples borrowed list, sorts and inserts invoices, and designs most of our advertisements.
Main Street - West Stockbridge, MA
The Floor Store has been selling and installing quality floor covering from Main Street in West Stockbridge, Massachusetts for over thirty five years. We've been "flooring people" since 1983! When we built our building, we named it ''The Phoenix Building'' because it had burned down a year or two before we bought the space (some of you may remember it as ''Miss Ruby's Restaurant'').
At the Floor Store . . .We specialize in custom floors of all kinds: ceramic tile, prefinished wood floors (nailed, glued, and floating installations), vinyl sheet and tile floors of all types, carpeting, rugs, laminates, and commercial floors such as radial rubber tiles, sheet rubber, inlaid vinyls, and custom vinyl tiles for the discriminating taste. Since we especially like custom ceramic work, we also do walls as well as floors: showers, bathrooms, kitchen countertops and backsplashes with things like glass mosaics, tumbled marble, and intricate inserts both factory made and custom built to your specifications right in our workshop. Wood stove heat shields, hearths, multiple-surface combinations like ceramic tile with polished marble feature strips. Ask for the extraordinary... please!
At The Floor Store, we pride ourselves in showing and offering things out of the ordinary. If you've seen something somewhere that has really caught your eye, try to take a picture of it (at least a mental picture anyway) and bring it to us. If you saw something amazing in Manhattan or Boston …Oregon or Seattle, even Italy, Spain, Japan or India... if it's available on the market, we can probably track it down.
Our store is directly opposite the Old Town Hall on Main Street in West Stockbridge - next door to The Public Market. We are open Tuesday through Saturday, from 9AM to 4PM. Come by on a warm summer day, sit on the balcony overlooking the peaceful Williams River and watch the trout go by. We're in the heart of the beautiful Berkshires. Many people come for a weekend and want to stay forever. And many do. They keep us busy and we're grateful for it..
Two generations of family providing, dependable, honest and affordable flooring in West Stockbridge, since 1983!
