Carpet World Fargo Has Been Fargo’s Premier Flooring Outlet for Over 50 Years

Founded in 1968 by Jerry Kautzman, Carpet World was Fargo’s first carpet retailer. With few available flooring solutions locally, Kautzman realized an opportunity in the Fargo market, opening a store that would provide more flooring selections to customers than any department store or traveling salesman could offer.

The original vision was a new concept of only selling the best floor covering and offering full installation service on everything sold. Today, that product line has expanded in varieties, styles, and colors, but remains true in being the best flooring available in Fargo-Moorhead, paired with full professional installation.

Throughout its history, Carpet World Fargo has remained a locally owned enterprise, and is now owned and operated by Jerry Kautzman’s son, Bruce Kautzman, Terry Meyer, and Carpet World’s professional staff. Together, they are proud that the showroom is still locally owned and operated with “The Region’s Largest Selection of Floor Covering”—serving Fargo-Moorhead and surrounding areas including the Lakes area, Southeast North Dakota, and Northeast South Dakota,

Did You Know?
Carpet World has been in three different locations around Fargo over the past five decades. Its original location was on Main Ave, later moving to a larger facility on 13th Ave S, before building its current and largest showroom at 4601 17th Ave S.

Offering the Newest Products on the Market

Flooring purchases are generally considered on par with a person’s first home and any new vehicle purchases; it’s an investment. Homeowners expect their flooring to stand the test of time while remaining comfortable. Carpet World understands that flooring styles and trends are constantly changing, and equally important, each customer has a lifestyle and personal taste that is unique to them. That’s why as the flooring trends and product lines continue to improve and evolve, Carpet World is continually striving to make the newest, quality products available to customers in the region.

The Rug Shop

“One common question our customers ask us is, ‘Do you have the ability to create smaller area rugs or hallway runners to accent our larger flooring purchases?’ Carpet World has a subsidiary branch called The Rug Shop that can take smaller carpet remnants and add bordered seams or even trim them down into small accent pieces,” the Carpet World team said. “Perhaps you have an existing area rug that is damaged or frayed—The Rug Shop may be able to fix it up like new. Ask one of our Carpet World’s sales associates in the showroom for more information.”

A Trusted Team of Flooring Experts

With endless options available, Carpet World Fargo understands that homeowners need a team of true professionals who can guide them in product selections, educate them on applications, and ultimately be a trusted voice they can depend on. That’s why Carpet World’s sales associates function more like neighborhood design professionals who take the time to understand your home’s environment and suggest the various options that will provide the most satisfaction and durability.

“Current buzzwords like stain-resistant and waterproof are only as good as that particular environment will allow, it comes down to a trusted team,” the Carpet World team said. “You’ll find you are ‘on your own’ with most large home improvement stores in general, and that can leave you overwhelmed. Carpet World won’t let that happen.”
