Floor and Decor Outlets of America has announced plans to expand its Midwest presence with the openings of two more stores in the Metropolitan Chicago area. The first will be in Arlington Heights, Ill., at 600 E. Rand Rd., on April 18, 2013. The grand opening of the store in Aurora, Ill., will follow this summer.
Like the company's store in Lombard, Ill., the Arlington Heights location will feature a 90,000-sq.-ft. showroom and will employ 50 to 75 people.
"We're thrilled with the success of our Lombard store, and we are so pleased to be expanding in the Chicago area," said Bryant Scott, president of Floor and Decor. "Floor and Decor offers contractors and do-it-yourselfers the chance to build and remodel on a budget while not compromising quality, beauty or durability. Plus, having all the materials in one place makes the experience easy and efficient."
