You wouldn’t want to order ribs at Rug Bones any more than you’d want to order a side of fries at Chubby Chickens, but if you’re looking for flooring materials at bare bones prices you’ll want to check out the Rug Bones warehouse on K-Beach Road. According to Rug Bones General Manager Mike Cole, carpet bones are basically the ribcage of a whole carpet roll, “Kind of like a beef rib the rug bone supports the whole roll of carpet, but our name came from our owner Frank Thomas who has been in the carpet business for more than 20 years and has owned many successful flooring companies with catchy names like Fast Freddy’s and Chubby Chickens,” said Cole.

Recently Rug Bones donated the floor coverings for the latest Habitat for Humanity house which is nearly finished in Kenai, “It was a heart felt thing. The family came in and selected what was needed to finish out her floors and we didn’t put any restrictions on her and let her browse through the entire warehouse and select anything she wanted. But of course many other people have donated to the Habitat house as well and we were happy to be a part of the project,” added Cole.

Cole says that he has been selling carpet himself for the last six years and truly enjoys helping customers match their flooring needs with the best products available, “Before I got into the retail part of the business six years ago I was an installer, so with all of us here collectively we have more than 50 years of experience to draw upon to know that you’re getting the best product. We carry a lot of stock because we buy a lot and that’s how we get low prices.” Rug Bones not only has a large warehouse of materials in stock, but they are also authorized dealers for major brand names and can special order whatever the customer is looking for including wood floors, laminate, and vinyl. Rug Bones Quality Flooring at Discount Prices is open Monday Friday 9:00am 6:00pm and Saturday 9:00am 5:00pm call Mike or Jacob for advice at 262-2137.
