Dealers react to Lowe’s Stainmaster buy

Thanks for the memories

Many flooring retailers have a history with the Stainmaster brand going back more than 30 years and enjoying great success. For example, McSwain Carpet & Floors in Cincinnati had conducted a financial analysis of soft surface sales for 2019 and found that a proprietary Stainmaster product line delivered 6.5% more gross profit points.

Others also enjoyed positive numbers. “We have had 35 successful years with the Stainmaster brand – in their initial launch and the years since as SFC,” said Molina of Star Lumber. “Together we shared ideas, created enthusiasm for the products, promoted through private sales, benefited from product and sales training, and leveraged their experience remodeling our showrooms. It was a great run. “

Raffi Sarmazian, general manager of Sarmazian Bros., Cambridge, Ontario, Canada, also paid tribute. “Stainmaster has supported us over the years with great training programs for our RSAs,” he said. “We had a great run with products like PetProtect, implementing promos like private sales and $ 99 carpet installation events, which were the brainchild of [former Invista executive] Pami Bhullar, who has been instrumental in making the brand a success in our stores. “
