Northport Flooring America

Northport Flooring America was originally founded in 1947 by Arthur J. Chamberlin. Our flooring store started as the State Road Laundromat. Over the years, Arthur expanded the store into the rug cleaning business, which ended up being the mainstay of our services. After years of growth and expansion, we’ve outgrown a few locations. We became Northport Carpet in 1974, which was derived from our building’s proximity to the intersection of Northhampton Road and Portage Trail. In 1993, we became part of the Flooring America family, naming our store Northport Flooring America and becoming a full-service flooring company. Now, the store is owned by Steve Walbolt and Derek Fay. 

With all of this flooring experience, we are your premier local flooring store. Our team is excited to get to know you and help you with all of your flooring needs.
