EAST PIKELAND - A new carpet and flooring store has opened in Tarrytown Plaza. Ches-Mont Carpet One, located on Schuylkill Road, started doing business on Jan. 2. This is the second location for owner Barry Peronteau.
"Phoenixville is a great location," said Peronteau, "Our Pottstown customers will drive out to see us, and we have new customers locally." The first location, CCW Carpet Warehouse in Parkerford, is now a warehouse outlet store that sells remnants and area rugs.
Phoenixville's Carpet One is a full-service showroom that provides set-up and installation services of wood, ceramic, vinyl, laminate and carpet.
Carpet One is an individually owned co-operative company with 1,400 stores nationwide.
"(The individual ownership) allows owners to adjust to suit their local market," said Barry Peronteau of Spring City. The Phoenixville location is staffed with three sales people, all of whom live in the area.
Barry, whose brother, Brad, also works in the Phoenixville store, enjoys working closely with customers in the community.
"I enjoy meeting new people and talking to families," said Barry, who works primarily out of the location in Parkerford.
The two Peronteau brothers have several years of experience in the flooring industry beginning with their father's business in 1972. Barry took over after his father's retirement and his own return from college.
"I saw an opportunity, so I took it," said Peronteau.
