Hi, I am Larry Lyday, owner of One Stop Flooring America, Inc. in Mt. Vernon, Illinois. I look forward to the opportunity to personally meet you and show you our 5,000 square foot showroom that is sure to get you in the decorating mood. It has been a pleasure to service the people in Southern Illinois for the past 30 years. Living in a small community gives me a chance to become involved in the growth of this area. I have served on the Habitat for Humanity Board and enjoyed helping area residents obtain their first home. I love sports and besides writing an area sports column for 3 years, I have served on the JCSA Youth Board, coached baseball, and love going to Mt. Vernon Rams football and basketball games. I serve on the Jefferson County Chamber of Commerce small business council and believe in supporting our local merchants and programs as much as possible. I have a beautiful granddaughter Blakely, one son, Eric, my daughter-in-law Adrienne, and my wife, Karen, and I are getting ready to celebrate our 36th anniversary this July.
Our continued commitment to provide quality flooring, compatible pricing and lifetime guarantees on installation has motivated us to receive the "Best Flooring Store" award 10 years running in the Mt. Vernon Register-News reader survey.
When I am asked what has been the most rewarding thing I have noticed over my career, it has to be the privilege to get to work on customer's homes more than once! Statistics show that people change flooring on average from 8 to 12 years. We are now redoing clients homes for the second and third time and that is the ultimate compliment a business should strive to obtain.
