Even though it’s a small town, Dalton, Ga., has a lot of institutions. One such institution is Carpets of Dalton, an operation that was launched in 1971. Carpets of Dalton is a large floor covering retailer with a facility that’s 207,000 square feet. According to the company’s advertisements, that is equivalent to about five football fields. And as you can imagine, this floor covering, furniture and appliance operation has a massive amount of inventory.
We had an opportunity to talk with Jerry Hennon, principal of Carpets of Dalton, at company headquarters, and take a tour of the massive facility, all of which you can watch here. The following are excerpts of that conversation.
