Carolina Carpet
was established and co-founded by Joe Williamson and his brother in-law, James Young, in January of 1989, to fulfill a dream they both had. Carolina Carpet was first started in a small building on Wych Street in Henderson, NC. In 1992, James Young left Carolina Carpet to pursue other interests. Joe Williamson, and his wife Evelyn, continued serving the area, providing excellent customer service and a wide variety of flooring to meet the needs of all customers. Joe's son, Craig, soon joined the company. At this time, Craig assisted his mom and dad with professional carpet-cleaning, and binding of area rugs. As time progressed, Carolina Carpet moved to another location on Raleigh Road in Henderson, NC. It was not uncommon to come by Carolina Carpet and see Joe, Evelyn, and their small grandchildren in the store. Joe and Evelyn retired and closed Carolina Carpet in 2008. While enjoying retirement, Joe spent his time traveling and spending time with his wife and grandchildren. One day while playing golf, Joe met John Faucette. John began to persistently ask Joe if he was interested in re-birthing Carolina Carpet. After many attempts by John to convince Joe to re-open the carpet store, Joe finally agreed. John and Joe both felt that, even in slow economic times, Henderson needed a famly-owned flooring company. Being that John and Joe had reached an agreement, Carolina Carpet was re-opened at its present location of 634 Dabney Drive, Henderson, NC.
