Best Place to Buy Carpet / Flooring – Orange County Register

1st Marathon Triad Carpet Mill Outlet

1348 N. Santiago St., Santa Ana; 800-540-1859;

Marathon Triad has been family-owned for more than 30 years and is served by both private and commercial customers with carpets. The company’s huge warehouse in Santa Ana stocks a variety of carpets and scraps at great prices, with next day service.

Marathon Triad’s carpet selection includes commercial carpets that are tough enough to run a full office, as well as carpets for residential and rental purposes. Styles vary – new shipments arrive frequently – but both soft and patterned carpets are available. The store also sells leftovers, handy when you only need a piece of carpet for a project like a carpet.

While Marathon Triad is best known for carpets, it also wears hard surfaces. Options include both luxury vinyl tile and commercial luxury vinyl tile, with the latter becoming increasingly popular in high-traffic areas of the home. Other types of flooring, including tiles, vinyl panels, laminate, and luxury vinyl planks, are also available. Marathon Triad is an authorized seller of products from the solid carpet and flooring brand Mohawk.

You can email Marathon Triad through their website for a quote or drop by during business hours. Early bookers should note that the shop opens at 7:30 a.m. six days a week. The marathon triad is closed on Sundays.

2. Bockmans

1008 N. Tustin Ave., Anaheim; 714-630-4455;

It’s the individual touch that drives people to go to Bockman’s for interiors. “We do everything,” says owner Jon Bockman over the phone. “Everything is done here.”

It’s a family tradition. Bockman’s grandmother made curtains and his father was an upholsterer. When they retired, Bockman merged their businesses into his own. While its roots are in window coverings and upholstery, the Anaheim store is also a favorite for carpets.

Bockman’s offers a wide range of carpets and rugs. However, the store can also make carpets from their range of carpets to meet your specifications. “We can actually cut it and make it the exact size you want,” he says. This has become one of the most popular features at Bockman’s. Even with carpets, her talent is to create tailor-made products that delight customers.

3. Colonial Carpet Co.

7331 Garden Grove Blvd, Suite B, Garden Grove; 714-892-4495;

Rick Tessier’s first memory of the family’s carpet business was when he was 3 years old. Colonial Carpets has been family-owned since 1955. When Tessier finished college, his father suggested they try the business for six months. That was about 40 years ago.

“We have been in business for 65 years and have a large ledger, lots of regular customers and lots of recommendations,” says Tessier. Colonial Carpets has also repeatedly made the best of Orange County which he believes has spawned new generations of customers.

Over the decades, Colonial’s carpet has changed a lot, in a way that is not fully visible. “They’re much more dirt-repellent and animal-friendly,” says Tessier. In addition, the manufacturers also made softer carpets. “Some of it feels almost like silk now,” he explains. One thing that hasn’t changed that drastically is the staff. Colonial Carpet sellers have an average of 20 years’ experience.
