Guy Williams has got you(r floor) covered


PAWTUCKET — After years of selling carpeting for others, including the Armstrong Carpet Co., Guy Williams, with his brother, started The Carpet Store in 1987. They later changed its name to Factory Carpet Outlet and Guy took over in 1999.

Factory Carpet Outlet has grown in size and reputation. They now have a 10,000 square foot showroom, a 5,000 square foot warehouse and workroom and have become an excellent source of floor covering in the area. They cover all of Rhode Island, said owner Williams, and they “easily service clients within an hour’s drive in all directions from Pawtucket.” They’re easy to get to – their showroom is right off Route 95.

Factory Carpet Outlet stocks all types of flooring products, including carpet, wood, tile and stone, and provides installation services for them as well. Williams’ company also offers complete fabrication services. They can bind, serge (a specialized style of binding a rug’s edge) and customize almost any carpet and area rug and the sales staff is well informed of all the new products and trends.

“We try to help the consumer select the best product for their needs. A long-lasting floor is a longtime happy customer,” says Williams.

What do customers need to do before visiting the showroom? Williams says, “When walking into our showroom, customers only have to open their minds to the vast number of floor covering choices.” Factory Carpet Outlet gives free estimates, regardless of the size of the job. Williams sums up his philosophy, “I believe we should earn your business with service, value and selection.”

Factory Carpet Outlet ( is located at 26 Esten Avenue in Pawtucket. They can be reached at 723-6996.
