ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- Lonnie’s Carpet Max, located at 6551 E. Riverside Blvd., in Rockford is opening a new location across state lines in Janesville, Wisconsin.
The new location is at 2834 Pontiac Drive, Janesville. Lonnie’s is known as Rockford’s premier flooring retailer and with so much success, owner Lonnie Presson decided it was time to expand and open Lonnie’s Flooring Outlet reaching across the state-line into Wisconsin.
“When we have excess inventory, it just sits in our Rockford warehouse. We decided it made more sense to open an outlet so we can move the product, while at the same time, Janesville shoppers can get a great deal,” says Presson.
Lonnie Presson has a long history in the flooring business. He started in the industry as a carpet installer in 1971 and in 1986 opened Lonnie’s Carpet Max in Rockford.
The new store, Lonnie’s Flooring Outlet, will feature revolutionary flooring products for at-cost prices. Some of the inventory that will be available includes carpet, ceramic tile, hardwood, area rugs and laminates.
Lonnie’s Flooring Outlet has just opened its doors for business as of February 20th with an advertising and grand opening sale planned for late February, March and April.
