In the late 1920’s, Lewistown Floor Company was founded by Wally Barber, operating out of his home at 520 West Fourth St. While Wally focused on the installation of the flooring, his wife operated the retail side. The Barbers operated the business for 40 years until retirement.
In 1968 the business and home was purchased by Melvin Messerman who continued the business model by taking care of the installation side of the business while his wife Thelma cared for the retail side from their home. The business became more of a family business in the early 80’s as Melvin’s son, Dan, began working with his dad on the installation side.
In 1990 the current showroom and warehouse was built beside the home at 518 West Fourth St. greatly expanding the showroom space and selection of flooring. With the expanded showroom Melvin’s daughter, Mary, became involved in the business, becoming office manager for the showroom. In January 1996 Melvin retired and Dan took over ownership of the business. At this time, some 27 years later, Mary is still serving as the office manager and Dan is still doing the installation. And Melvin, he’s still next door, offering his assistance and experience whenever needed.
We have purposely kept our business small so that we can give our customers the personal interest they deserve, from the purchase through the installation. Flooring has changed dramatically down through the years but our commitment to give our customers the best product at the best price with the best service has not. If you’re in the market for new flooring, stop in and see us, we think you’ll be glad you did!
