If you're in the market for a great looking rug look no further. Lynne helped me decide which rug would best compliment my dining room in regards to my wall paint, antique table etc. You won't find the same service or hospitality anywhere else. I always try to support locally owned family run businesses and you should too. Very satisfied customer! A++
A tremendous selection of rugs and carpets. Ownership is superb and very knowledgeable.
The Rug Merchant has beautiful rugs and extremely helpful and courteous employees. They are the best!!
Love this place staff very nice and helpful I found a really nice rug and I love the color they have so many styles and colors to choose from if you ever get a chance go check this amazing place out.
I was very pleased with the selection here. Usually I only find a handful of rugs I like at places and a lot of them aren't very high quality. Lynne showed me a wide variety of rugs from various regions and at all level of price, size and quality. I selected several for my new home and they delivered them when they said they would and on time and I couldn't have asked for a better experience.
