GAINESVILLE - Gainesville Flooring is the new name for Budget Carpet & Flooring. <br />
Since its founding in 1992, the Everett family has grown their family owned and operated store to include three addresses; broadened their product offering; and increased their expertise in installation across all flooring categories. <br />
Company officials say the name Gainesville Flooring better conveys the broad range of flooring products offered and the spectrum of services provided in all flooring categories such as hardwood, tile, laminate, vinyl, rugs, backsplashes and renovation projects. <br />
""Budget Carpet & Flooring was a great name when my dad founded the store 22 years ago," said Jason Everett, owner of Gainesville Flooring. "It is still very much a part of us as it represents a rich foundation of core values, impeccable customer service and quality products we built our business around and reputation on, but it is just a name. At the end of the day, our people are what make us great, and all of us are still here. Gainesville Flooring is the same family, same values, same location and same principles
More than 20 people, including leaders in the African-American and Latino communities, gathered in a conference room at the Newtown Florist Club in Gainesville to discuss the city's at-large voting system.
