Try Home Depot or Lowes. We also used GCO Carpet Outlet in North Port on 41. We bought a remnant and had it bound and were very happy with their service. Not pushy, just helpful.

i wouldn't go to HD or Lowes for carpeting (or a roof, or window installation, etc). Has anyone used "Bob's Carpet Mart" I see there are a couple of locations nearby. How about "Chappie's" on Clark rd?

I used to buy carpet off the roll in NY, was able to negotiate good cash deals and get quick installation. That's all I'm looking for down here.

We have used Lowes and were more than satisfied, with the pricing & installation.

I feel comfortable that if it hadn't been done right they would be easy to work with in getting it right.

The guy I use works at Bob's Carpet but does side jobs for me. He's very good and reasonable.
