While mandated regulations are still requiring nonessential businesses to remain closed to the public, small business owners are getting creative with their newly freed-up schedules. At Steve's Flooring & Design in Morris, owner Steve Meyer is finding ways to keep certain operations functioning, all while completing a large renovation and expansion project in the store.
"We've taken advantage of the shelter-in-place directive by freshening up our showroom and expanding our displays," explained Meyer. "We're still receiving new samples of carpeting and Luxury Vinyl Tile and Planking, so there's a lot to see. We've added a nice color to our walls and installed new carpeting in our offices. Our entire showroom is being upgraded, and will even include a new shower display that highlights the Schluter Shower System, complete with different tile sizes and patterns and available shower doors." The Schluter Shower System is an integrated group of products that form a fully watertight and bonded assembly for tiled showers. It eliminates the risk of water and vapor penetration and overwhelmingly reduces total installation time.
In addition to the renovation, Steve's Flooring is broadening its display of Cambria quartz countertops, which feature new patterns and colors that will give customers more options for their new kitchen and bath designs. "Cambria is our bestselling quartz countertop manufacturer, so we're excited to roll out the new product line," said Meyer. "Cambria countertops are made in Minnesota; we're very proud to offer American-made products to the community."
Although the store is currently closed to the general public, some business transactions can be done by appointment. "Some of our services are still being performed," added Meyer. "We're still able to take measurements and install floor coverings. Customers can call or email us to set up an appointment. We're very flexible with our timing, and we are adhering to social distancing and other safety requirements during this crisis." For more information, please contact:
