Early's Carpet, Inc. was founded by John and Lorraine Early in 1966. Business was conducted from the basement office of their home in Amissville. 2015 marked the store's 49th anniversary. In the mid 60's only two furniture stores and one contruction business provided carpet to the area, and that was introduced to this rural area because there were no trained installers. John, having 12 years experience ventured into business with his wife, Lorraine, servicing Rappahannock, Fauquier, and Culpeper counties, where they grew up. In 1969, The Earlys built a store next door to their home, and by 1971 a warehouse was added to the back. The addition expanded the store from 3,200 sf to 11,400 sf. The huge facility now houses the stock flooring, an automatic Oriental rug rack that holds over 400 rugs, a large cutting machine, and hundreds of remnants. Later the store became the "One stop shop for all your home decorating needs", with the exception of wallpaper and paint, which were deleted in the late 70's. Lorraine and the sales staff helped customers with decorating selections, custom window treatments, blinds, shades, shutters, bedspreads, slip-covers, and re-upholstery of furniture. Everything was coordinated in one store, and it is still that way today. We are a company that is quality driven, customer service oriented, dedicated to providing our customers with the best values possible and the very best in craftsmanship.
