300 Stores Strong
“My vision for Lumber Liquidators has always been to offer customers a better quality floor at a lower price,” commented Tom Sullivan, Chairman and Founder. “That sounds simple but required a lot of hard work to get right. We removed the middleman from our business model, went direct to mills to source our flooring, and today are able to offer our customers a product assortment of more than 300 flooring varieties. I am humbled by what Lumber Liquidators has become and thank every one of our employees who have helped the Company grow into the business it is today and who continue to be focused on delivering the best service and product possible to our customers.”
Robert M. Lynch, President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, “Tom’s vision is the foundation for our value proposition of price, selection, quality, and availability, delivered by experienced professionals in our stores and support centers. From the launch of the business almost 20 years ago in a warehouse in West Roxbury, Massachusetts, we have grown to become the industry leader in hardwood flooring, satisfying over 1.3 million customers in just the last three years. Our direct sourcing from mills around the world, where we purchase the majority of the mills’ output, enables us to set strict standards for quality while providing the widest assortment of products at the lowest prices.”
A Bright Future
Mr. Lynch continued, “Lumber Liquidators was started by Tom buying excess wood from other companies and reselling it from the back of a trucking yard. Looking back makes me even more excited about what lies ahead for Lumber Liquidators. Our new ‘store of the future’ format is resonating extremely well with our customers, and more consumers are discovering that we are the leader in the hardwood flooring market. I am confident that our best days are ahead, and I am looking forward to the opening of the next 300 stores.”
To date in 2013, Lumber Liquidators has opened 12 new stores and expects to open a total of 25 to 35 stores by year-end, all in its “store of the future” format. The store of the future design enhances the shopping experience for customers with an expanded store showroom of approximately 1,600 square feet, including an expanded assortment of flooring options, moldings and accessories.
