Trent and Candace Young have owned Trent's Floor Solutions, a mom-and-pop business, since 2003.
Even through the 2008 economy meltdown, they have had wonderful and loyal patrons to see them survive. But 2020 they have been truly blessed! They said that they have never slowed down and were considered an essential business.
Candace says, "In our endeavors with our customers, we not only get to talk about store business, but also about the personal things that were going on in their lives since this pandemic started. So, I guess you could say, we were an outlet for many people to be able to get out of their homes and just be able to talk about how they were being affected by this dreaded COVID or anything else that came to mind and we would always take the time to listen."
They had the pleasure of being part of the Support Spa City program, which helped them and many other surrounding small businesses by selling and receiving gift certificates to help boost the economy as it helped benefit many other businesses in the community, as well.
Trent says that, as the year 2021 has progressed, "the industry is still dealing with many obstacles, such as product availability, shipping, workforce, and escalating pricing. Everyone is dealing with these same issues but they feel very fortunate to still have the many new and reoccurring customers daily. Patients for all involved is truly a virtue that we all are learning together."
Trent and Candace wanted to share a special "Thank You to this community that we love so much. ... Just to hear that someone thought enough of us to nominate our store for small business of the year 2020, is truly humbling!"
