A few facts about us

Leicester Carpet Sales

Proud to Sell Only American-Made Flooring 

Leicester Carpet is is a family-owned flooring company celebrating it's 40th year in business. J.B. Snelson and his wife Alma started the business from their home in the Leicester Community in 1971.  It has grown to include two major flooring centers in Asheville and Hendersonville NC.

For many years Leicester Carpet was a "mom and pop" operation with Mrs. Snelson handling sales in the office while her husband supervised installation.  The couple's integrity and attention to customer service made Leicester Carpet the preferred choice of builders and "WNC's most trusted name in floor covering."

Their son Brad grew up in the business and took over at the ripe age of 21 when his parents retired.  Since then Brad has grown the company while keeping the core values that have made it a 40-year success story!

The "Leicester difference" that keeps customers coming back despite competition from chain stores and big box retailers is really quite simple. We have the best selection, the best installers, and the best warranty in the business.  Combine these with our low pricing and you get the best value for your money.

Visit either of our spacious showrooms and see all the latest offerings - as well as timeless favorites - in wood, carpet, vinyl and tile.  There are no cookie cutter solutions here - just plenty of selection for you to express your own taste and style.  Our friendly, non-commision sales staff really know their flooring and can advise you on the best products for every taste and budget.

We never forget that our business was built on our skilled installers, most of whom have worked for us for many years.  They treat each customer's home with respect, doing their job expertly and neatly, and we back up their work with our exclusive lifetime warranty on installation, which helps keep us an A-plus rating with the Better Business Bureau.
