This year marks CBL Floor’s fortieth year in business. It’s been a long, interesting, and enjoyable ride, that’s for sure. Back when itall started in 1979, we were located at 458
S. Robert St. in St. Paul – right where Ertel’sDrug Store stood. That was our home for 33 years. Frank would sell by day and install by night with his brother, Mike. As time went on, we added installers and rented a warehouse to store our carpet and pad. Frank’s oldest brother, Al, joined the sales force for 13 years and retired in 2004. In 2004, we transitioned the company name from Carpets by Lindsey to CBL Floors (Creating Beautiful Living). We then moved our store to 1061 S. Robert St. in WSP for 4 years. We were fortunate to have Sherrill Patnode and Jeff Youngquist work 21 years with us. In 2015 we moved to 5456 So. Robert Trail in Inver Grove Heights, our present location.
I think it’s safe to say we are done moving. We love the accessibility this location offers our customers and the size of our showroom is just right. The love of providing quality flooring and exceptional service is something that spans generations in the Hanzal family. Frank’s father was in the flooring business as an installer many moons ago. Additionally, our son, Brandon, also has a
flooring business called, Buck’s Flooring. What an opportunity to have served our community “Creating Beautiful Living” for so many years.
We have been blessed!
