WESTFIELD – After almost a decade of asking, Mark Henry decided it was time to come to Westfield.
So Henry, the owner of Mark’s Discount Flooring in North East, Pa., purchased an old church on Clinton Street and set up shop. The church had previously housed a flooring shop, and the former owners had been trying to get Henry to take over.
“Before I bought the one in North East, they’ve been asking me to buy this one,” Henry said. “They’ve been asking for about 9 years.”
Located at 33 Clinton Street, the store will feature a variety of flooring items and, in the future, also showcase furniture including recliners, mattresses and box springs.
“I’ll still have a catalogue you can order sofas and everything else through,” Henry said, “but a lot of people like to look at things first. Right now, it’s going to be hit and miss finding things to look at until I get things set up totally.”
While the business won’t hold its grand opening until January or February, Henry said customers are still able to stop in and check out what the business offers. The shop’s hours are Monday, Tuesday and Thursday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Friday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.; and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. Customers can also call 716-269-4273, 326-2116 or 814-725-6705 to set up an appointment to visit the store.
“I’ve already sold one job out of here,” Henry said.
Henry and his daughter, Kelly Pierce, who will manage the store, have been working to get the business ready, including removing mildew and mold and clearing out space.
“We hauled two dumpsters out of here and a whole dump truck full of stuff,” Henry said.
But it’s all the room that makes Henry’s Westfield location so much different than his North East shop.
“My place in North East, I have no storage. I only have show rooms,” Henry said. “I’ve got a lot of space and storage here.”
Mark’s Carpet Warehouse, located at 33 Clinton Street, Westfield, features a variety of flooring items. The owners hope to have furniture such as recliners and mattresses on display soon. The business can be reached by calling 716-269-4273, 326-2116 or 814-725-6705.
