Danny Flooring & Interiors on the South Loop across the road from Grump’s is a Stephenville fixture, with owner and Tarleton State grad, Danny Karnes having opened up in 1972.

Karnes, wasn’t available on the day of this interview, but we spoke with store manager Nick Robinson to find out more about Danny’s.

He explains, “Danny’s original store was on the square briefly, then near Gifford’s, and in the early 80s, he built this showroom.

“It’s the largest, most complete floor-covering and window-treatment showroom in the area,” he adds.

Danny’s is a truly spacious, well-appointed showroom, with high quality products; the people who work at Danny’s are extremely knowledgeable professionals – you’ll see why in a moment − and they’re also friendly and funny.

To list what they offer in broad categories, think carpet, ceramic tile, hardwood, laminate, and luxury vinyl. Now about the pros that work at Danny’s:

“The people who do our installations are true professionals. We are constantly training and retraining with companies in the industry. It never stops, so we’re always state of the art in terms of installation, no matter what the product being installed may be,” Robinson says.

Services include flooring installations, blinds and window treatments, tub surrounds and showers, and design advice. They’re also the only Hunter-Douglas window treatment dealer in the area and that’s saying something because, according to the Hunter-Douglas website, all their window treatments are guaranteed for life.

And equally-impressive − as the website points out − “Danny's Flooring & Interiors is a locally-owned store that is dedicated to serving a wide variety of interior decor needs. Our store has been selected by Mohawk to represent its best and most complete product lines. Introduced in 1999, Mohawk Floorscapes dealers offer a unique, comfortable shopping environment by salespeople trained by Mohawk's premier training academy, Mohawk University.

“In addition, these retailers can take advantage of Mohawk technical training, partnership programs with other flooring manufacturers and special warranties.”

Robinson says that their sales and specials are continuously ongoing.

“We just about always have some kind of special going on. People can look for the deals in our ads and they’ll usually find them," he said. “This is a very special community and we want to be a positive influence on whatever people are trying to accomplish in their homes and offices.”

An excerpt from the Danny’s Flooring & Interiors Mission Statement underscores that: “Locally owned-and-operated means that we are in your community to help whenever the need arises. Our goal is to provide a quality shopping experience the first time every time."
