Buyer Beware! Don’t fall for the gimmick! Recently, a friend of mine had me over to look at her kitchen and help choose kitchen cabinets. When I got there, she showed me the carpet she had chosen from a competitor of mine. She said they were offering her “Free Installation”. When I looked at what she had, I just about choked.
The carpet was marked $6.41/sf – Which supposedly included standard pad and free installation.
I have that EXACT piece of carpet in my store. When I add in standard pad and the cost of standard installation, my price is $5.04/sf *** So even with “free installation” I was $1.37/sf cheaper!
Think about it, if you had 600sf of carpet:
$6.41/sf = $3,846
$5.04/sf = $3,024
That’s a savings of $822 by shopping with me!! As the old saying goes, if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is!
