Our Flooring Consultants


Big Bob's Flooring Outlet

Our founder, David Elyachar began his floor covering career as a retail carpet salesman. He worked his way up to sales manager and eventually became a mill representative. This experience afforded him extensive knowledge in all areas of the floor covering business. In addition, David developed solid contacts and personal relationships throughout the industry that have aided him in the development of his venture. These contacts continue to play a vital role in the success of Big Bob’s Flooring Outlets.

In late 1983, David and his family decided to replace the “like new” carpet in their recently purchased home. The carpet did not match their furnishings but was nearly new. It seemed wasteful to simply discard it, so they opted to advertise the carpet in the Sunday classifieds. To their surprise, the entire house-full of carpet sold immediately and over 50 calls were received from that single advertisement. The overwhelming response sparked an idea. After checking the yellow pages for a “Used Carpet” listing and finding none, an opportunity was discovered. Nine days after that infamous ad, a business, marketing and operational plan had been written, forms printed, warehouse rented, and inventory purchased. The rest as they say... is history.

Big Bob’s Used Carpet has evolved into Big Bob’s Flooring Outlet and is now more than just a First Quality Flooring Outlet Franchise business. There are currently over 50 locations nationally, providing America’s customers with great value, quality products and outstanding service.

Thank you very much for spending 6 hours of your Sunday to put new carpet in the Denali Cabin. Your effort has dramatically improved the look and feel of the cabin. Thank you also for the loan of the staple gun. Perhaps we'll give it a try ourselves! The thing is, how do you make it look so good around the heaters? Thank you again, Pat. If you and your family would like to visit the camp and spend a night or so, just let me know. Gracias

Big Bob's Flooring,
Thank you very much for replacing my linoleum! I cannot put into words how much I appreciate you making this right. The cut was getting darker by the day as dust settled into it, and I could see it every time I sat on the "throne!" :) Now it looks great. Rob Steen and his partner did a wonderful job! Thank you!

Dear Pat,
Thank you for your help during our recent remodel o the Archangel Attic.  Your generosity facilitated the completion of this huge project in a timely manner.  With everyone pitching in and offering their expertise, we now have a first class store for our customers who so often have to settle for second best.  It is a wonderful feeling to see our regulars take pride in where they shop.

Thank you, Pat, for all of your help with our carpeting and linoleum for our store.  We appreciate how good of a deal you gave us on the total price.  We know there's no way we could have gotten such a good grade of carpeting on our limited budget, along with the excellent customer service you have and continue to show us.  You're always so gracious to us, thank you!  Without your help and support, this project could have been prolonged.  Instead it moved quickly and we were able to open in six weeks.

During our first hour weeks of being open, we have doubled and often tripled our daily intake.
Lumen Christi High School is the recipient of our financial profits and already we have increased our assistance to them.  This allows the school to continue to recruit high quality teachers and offer more diverse classes for our students.

As the pieces of this project fell into place, we knew God was answering our many prayers.  His timing, our helpers, and the many donations were God reassuring us of His Divine Plan.  You have been instrumental in following Jesus' commandment: "Do unto others as you would have them to do unto you." (Luke 6:31)

Thank you again,
In Christ,
Saint Benedict's Parish

Dear Big Bob's Carpet,
Thank you for cutting and bringing us carpet for our play. It made it really cool. We used it for the peach. It was just the right size. Everyone here appreciated it so much that we just wanted to thank you.
Thank you all so much for your kind generosity. It made a wonderful difference!!!

Big Bobs,
Thank you to all of you at Big Bob's for supporting our school and contributing to our 2004-2005 yearbook. Holy Rosary Academy greatly appreciates your generosity. We are very excited about our yearbook this year. Without the support of the community and businesses such as Big Bob's carpeting, we at Holy Rosary would not be able to undertake such tasks and projects as this.
Thank you,

Andrea H. (Yearbook Advisor)

Dear Donor,
Thank you for your generous donation to the Holy Rosary Auction held this February. It was our best action ever. The tables were sold out and the earnings in excess of 80,000.00. Thank you for your part in helping to make this event such as success.
Know that unless otherwise notified we acknowledged your name and your generous donation in our program to be sure that you received the proper notice for your efforts.
We hope that your contributions will become part of an annual tradition. We value your generosity and look forward to working with you again at our next action.

Mary Ann C. (Auction chair)

Thank you so much for being patient with us as we finally come to the end of our house project. We appreciate your holding on to our carpet for so long, as well as loaning us carpet last summer for our visitors. We'll be recommending you and Big Bob's to everyone.

Thanks a lot!
