“When you buy from a small business, you are not helping a CEO buy a third vacation home. You are helping a little girl get dance lessons, a little boy get his team jersey, a mom put food on the table, a dad pay a mortgage, or a student pay for college. Our customers are our shareholders – and they are the ones we strive to make happy. Thank you for supporting small business!”
Why Support Local Business Within You Community?
It Saves You Money
I’ve been selling and installing carpet all over Chicagoland for 35 years based on word of mouth. I don’t spend thousands of dollars on advertisements and gimmicks that promise “buy one room of carpet, get the second one free.” I assure you there is no such thing. Kevin Micks Carpet doesn’t have a Sales Team, so I don’t make a commission from selling you the most expensive product and I won’t try to sell you window treatments or anything else you haven’t asked for. It’s really simple, I’ll bring top industry carpet samples to your home and help you select the carpet that is best for your home or business. There is no rush. Keep the samples at your home and think it over. When you are ready, I will order your carpet direct from the mills in Georgia, where over 80% of carpet is made in the United States. I will personally install your carpet at our prescheduled time and ensure that you are satisfied. By taking away all the intermediaries, you save money. You will also receive personalized service that the corporate shops cannot match.
Real Customer Service
Nobody understands the importance of customer service like a small business owner because we actually live in the communities we serve and are small enough to know each individual customer and their particular needs. We know how to treat our customers like people, not a number. Our customers are also our best advertisers. No commercial campaign or marketing team can compete with the simple, yet powerful, personal recommendation from a friend or neighbor. New carpeting can be a large investment and you should expect to work with a knowledgable professional who listens to your needs and has your interests in mind. The reputation of Kevin Micks Carpet is important to me and I strive each day to ensure that my customers feel valued and well-informed.
Your Money Stays Here
The money I earn has been spent right here in the Chicago area economy. My work has supported my five children from pre-school all the way through university and the countless activities in between, all right here in Illinois. My tax dollars stay here too. While I sometimes wish the people in Springfield would be more careful in how they spend our money, I don’t play accounting games, like so many other companies, to dodge taxes. I believe in hard work and strong families. Strong families need strong communities to support them and small business owners are the people who live here and are truly invested in the well-being of Chicagoland. When you choose where to spend your hard-earned money, I hope you will choose local businesses that support family, integrity, and hard work because that is the backbone of Chicago and that is what made us who we are today.
