The Story Behind The Floor Trader of Lawrence
Our founder, Bud Jennings, began selling flooring products in 1952 when he returned home from the Korean War. Over the past 70+ years, Bud and his family, have made professional flooring sales and installation a family trade. In 1987, Bud and the family made a 10,000 sg.ft. addition to the discount outlet warehouse at 3000 Iowa Street in Lawrence to support and increased business demand and offer a larger inventory of affordably priced flooring products. In 1994, Lawrence's Floor Trader Outlet joined the value/stocking division of the largest floor covering co-op in North America providing access to inventory from all the major brands. Basic/commodity products to high-end/designer styles. We have something for every flooring desire at The Floor Trader Outlet!
