House of Carpets Carpet One Celebrates Our 65th Anniversary
On April 5, 1950 Oscar Cowan and Peter W. Johansen held a grand opening in Downtown Moesto at the corner of 13th & J sts. For House of Carpets,“The home of distinctive carpeting.” With a population of 15,000, those were the days that you could call the operator to place your call and much of the town shared a single “party line” to make calls. But Modesto grew quickly, and so did House of Carpets. By 1965 House of Carpets relocated to 1120 McHenry Avenue at Roseburg and has remained there ever since. In their newly completed building, the company established a commercial flooring division and began offering all types of hard surface floor coverings. “We sold and installed millions of square feet of commercial flooring in valley businesses. Everything from professional office buildings and government offices to health care facilities, schools and even industrial plants,” said Jeff Cowan, owner and President of House of Carpets.
In 1991 House of Carpets joined the largest flooring cooperative, Carpet One, tying them into a network of over 2000 locations throughout the United States and Canada. Backed by the purchasing power of the co-op, House of Carpets was able to offer one of the most diverse selection of flooring and even give a guarantee to all customers that if they didn’t love their new floor that they would replace it for free. Long before social media, House of Carpets had a reputation for satisfied customers and with repeat and referral relationships as their hallmark. Customer reviews dating back to the 1970s hang proudly in their showroom as a testament to decades of finding the right flooring for their customers.
But ensuring customer satisfaction comes easily when a business is as involved in the community as the House of Carpets Family has been. Johansen was Mayor of Modesto in the mid 1960s and Cowan was active in business associations and the Modesto Rotary Club. In the early 1970s Cowan’s son, Jeff Cowan, acquired Johansen’s interest in the company and later the remaining shares. He continued the company’s commitment to Modesto by service as a board member and chairperson of the chamber of commerce, Memorial Hospital, Sutter Gould Medical Foundation, Community Hospice, Stanislaus Community Foundation, Modesto Rotary Club, and elected office on the MID Board. In 2003-06 Robert W. Kerr, Jr. acquired an interest in House of Carpets. He also continued the company’s focus on community service by serving on the boards of the Salvation Army’s Red Shield Youth Center and the Yosemite Council Boy Scouts of America.
Over the six plus decades the company has supported 100s of fund raisers for non-profits and had employees volunteer or serve on the boards of many local non-profits including: The Salvation Army, Boy Scouts of America, Haven Women’s Center of Stanislaus, Community Hospice, Center for Human Services, Modesto Symphony Orchestra, Townsend Opera, Central West Ballet, Gallo Center For the Arts, Modesto Rotary Foundation, Habitat for Humanity, Stanislaus Partners in Education, and Leadership Modesto.
