About Our Carpet Store

Established in 1979.

We’re bigger than we look! Wholesale Carpets has been serving the McHenry County area since 1979 and since that time we have gained a reputation for excellence. We are owned and operated by a local family and we have helped support many local events, team, and clubs over the years.

Using the “Golden Rule” as the standard has given us the excellent repeat and referral business that we have today. Wholesale Carpets was nominated “Retailer of the Year” by the Chicago Floor Covering Association several times. We were also rated #1 by Consumer’s Checkbook (a non-profit consumer’s rating) for our “Superior Overall Quality”. Today we continue to have lower prices and better service then our competition.

Wholesale did the new floors in our fitness studio. They are gorgeous! The price was comparable to other quotes we received. But the customer service and quality workmanship are what really won us over. The owner, Steve, took extra time to make sure we had a floor that met our needs. The crew took pride in their work… making sure every detail was just right… even the parts that most people wouldn’t notice. They were friendly, but worked hard. Communication was fantastic, and we had a great experience from start to finish. They were, by far, the easiest of our contractors to work with. Highly recommended!- Jenni O.
