In 1953, Color Tile opened its first store in downtown Kankakee, Illinois. Calling it Color Tile, the owners committed to operate under one guiding idea: to provide the best flooring products available with friendly, professional service. That commitment to quality hasn’t changed for over 50 years. Today, Color Tile is the most recognized name in the flooring industry with stores located nationwide.
In January of 1997, John MacCheyne signed on to become CarpetsPlus’ first member. Founded in the Fall of 1996, CarpetsPlus began with a philosophy that emphasized independent store ownership backed by the buying power of a national chain. Since then, CarpetsPlus has become the fastest growing flooring resource group in America, boasting a membership of more than 400 stores.
In August of 1997, Dave & Chris Lee along with their daughter Alicia Self took over the local Salem, Oregon store.
In April of 2002, CarpetsPlus and Color Tile merged to create a united family of retailers. Industry experts hailed it as a winning combination. Pairing the historic strength of Color Tile with the national resources of CarpetsPlus has created a national chain of premier floor
covering design centers. Transcending the typical retail flooring model, CarpetsPlus Color Tile stores offer the most comprehensive product selection available with exemplary service and installation.
We are a “one stop shop” for all the flooring needs of today’s consumer. Quality, service, honesty and integrity are our guiding principles.
The values Color Tile &Carpet held for over 50 years remain the same today for CarpetsPlus Color Tile. We continually strive to offer the best value to our customers and our independent owners guarantee the best service available.
Color Tile & Carpet of Salem is a family owned and operated business. Our staff is fully trained and participates in ongoing training to stay up to speed with all of the latest innovations in the industry.
