Owned by Michael Ganis, Action Flooring started out in 1972 in Miami but made its way to New Orleans in 2006. The store has experienced salespeople to assist in color and texture options. They also help customers make decisions about what kinds of materials work best based on both the applications and their lifestyles. Additionally, Action Flooring offers in-home measuring services and kitchen cabinet design. “We hire only licensed and insured installers for our installation jobs,” says Sally Smith, who serves as manager. “We have a huge network of suppliers for all material types so we can offer an extensive selection to meet any budget and style.” Ninety percent of the items are available within three to five days.
What are your goals as a retailer? We strive to have a full range of quality flooring products, cabinets and granite that are affordable and are available in a short time frame. We strive to have in stock a selection of all types of flooring materials that are bargain-priced and available today.
What are some of the latest trends? People are looking for “greener” products. Our industry is improving daily with the available selections of products at all price ranges. Carpets made from soda bottles or corn and hardwood flooring that is bonded with nonformaldehyde adhesives are a couple of the steps forward. Bamboo is far from being the only green choice.
What specials do you have this month? We have made some special purchases on tile, laminate, wood and carpet that are in stock and will be offered at fantastic discounts. Additionally, we will be offering 20 percent off all new cabinet orders placed during the month of August and 12 months with no payments and no interest for qualified buyers.
