Richland Carpet & Flooring -
Quality Sales & Service Since 1971
We are a family business that was founded by John & Jean Petrini. John was a New Jersey State Trooper at the time of our origin and Jean was a homemaker with 4 children. We started on a very small scale selling carpet ends that were left from rolls that were purchased at auction outside of Philadelphia to cover floors in the home front of Richland Carpet. The home is where John was born and raised. It was willed to John by his father who lived there since 1922. John's father had moved there from the coal mining region of Scranton, PA and started a very successful baby chick hatchery that was known throughout our surrounding areas. Anyone from this area knows the importance chicken and eggs were to South Jersey. The hatchery sat on the same location where the carpet store is now located.
In 1976, Phil Brunozzi joined Richland Carpet to form a team that has lasted for over 30 years now and still going strong. He joined us just after marrying his wife Jeanne Marie Colella. In January of 1977 the store burned to the ground and was rebuilt in May of the same year to the structure that we all see now, plus some expansions. The store enjoyed continuous growth in sales during the 70's, 80's and 90's and developed a charisma that is still enjoyed by our customers today!
After the fire we added other items besides carpet. They were sheet vinyl and vinyl tile. Our reputation grew as a store that provided a very nice atmosphere to shop at, with huge selection as well as the "friendliest" service provided by Phil and our knowledgeable staff. Plus we have always offered the best prices around and still pride ourselves on doing so!
On October 1, 2010, long time manager Phil Brunozzi and his wife Jeanne Marie took over the business. They are dedicated to maintaining the company's business philosophy and the stores reputation for outstanding customer service, by providing personal service and paying attention to what their customers want. They provide a family friendly business and the kind of service that you can't get at a big box store.
