Myers Carpet Co. has purchased the assets of Nashville Carpet Center, and will be merging the two businesses.

“Our current plans are to relocate both Nashville Carpet Center and Myers Flooring of Nashville into a much larger and newly renovated facility off Sidco Drive in Nashville,” according to owners Ray and Rick Myers. “The Myers family and staff will be working closely with Nashville Carpet Center president, Van Gilmore to make these combined carpet businesses the premiere floor covering destination in Nashville.”

Nashville Carpet Center has been a resource to the Nashville, Tenn., area for more than 40 years for carpet, rugs and flooring—providing a wide selection of products in all price ranges.

“I am very pleased that our companies are coming together in the Nashville market,” said Gilmore. “Each company has products and services that complement the other. So, our customers will enjoy greater selections and stronger services than ever before.”nerMyers Carpet Co. was the first and remains the oldest carpet outlet in Dalton. The company was founded in 1957 by Gene Myers, who started buying scraps of carpet from local mills and reworking them into stair treads and small rugs, which he then sold through area chenille stores on “Peacock Alley” along Georgia Highway 41. With the help of his wife Evelyn, and later sons Rick and Ray, Gene opened Dalton’s first carpet store and began offering carpet from Dalton’s local mills. In 1987, Myers Carpet opened a 3,000-square-foot showroom on Peachtree Street in Atlanta and six years later, moved into a 35,000 square-foot showroom and warehouse in Atlanta. In 1998, Myers Flooring was opened in Nashville, followed by the purchase in 2001 of the showroom and warehouse of Division Street Carpets in downtown Nashville.
