Carpet Plus Celebrates 30 Years!

In 1987, 24-year old Duane Cassis started Carpet Plus in a storage unit in Charlottesville. He had worked for a flooring supply store for just one year when he decided to go out on his own and provide flooring for the property management industry. 30 years later, Duane and his wife Cindy have grown Carpet Plus to be the area’s premier retail flooring store. Here’s a look at some major milestones from the last 30 years:
