Grand Opening Event this Thursday for New Naperville Design Center at
720 N. Washington Street, three blocks south of former store

Naperville, IL – On Thursday, January 31, Great Western Flooring is celebrating the A.R.T. of Flooring in an unprecedented way – the Grand Opening of its new flagship Naperville Design Center at The Washington – located at 720 North Washington Street. The event will kick off with a ribbon cutting at 4:30pm, and will continue into the evening. As part of the celebration, the company is offering its best-ever sale: 10% off all qualifying flooring orders starting January 28 and running through February 2, placed at any one of its three retail locations (Naperville, Oswego and St. Charles).

Present at the Grand Opening will be representatives from the company, including President Lauren Voit, and Vice President Dana Park; along with industry manufacturers, interior design VIPs, artists who work with flooring-related materials, local business representatives, and more. Naperville Mayor Steve Chirico will host the ribbon cutting, and members of the Naperville Chamber of Commerce as well as Naperville Development Partnership will be in attendance. Hugo’s Frog Bar will provide the catering. There will be special giveaways at the event, including a $250 gift certificate to every attendee.

Great Western Flooring is the primary occupant of The Washington, Naperville’s latest mixed-use development, located between 7th and 8th Avenues, at 720 North Washington Street. Conceived from the ground up, the new Naperville Design Center features a streamlined space that occupies the majority of the 8,000 square feet of the building’s street level retail space.

“Our Naperville Design Center was imagined to create a more intentional shopping experience,” said Mrs. Park. “Our focus was to provide a welcoming environment that takes the intimidation and stress out of home improvement. Our design consultants are experts in guiding a selection and design process for our customers’ projects,” she added. “We can’t wait to welcome everyone to our new home so that they can get to work on their homes!”

Great Western Flooring is pleased to offer a 10%-off sale as part of its week-long celebration. Sales and promotions come and go, but savings this big have never been offered in the company’s history.

Great Western Flooring is a family-owned and -operated business, with Lauren Voit, President, and Dana Park, Vice-President—daughters of the original owners and founders—now at the helm. Under their expert guidance, Great Western Flooring continues its longstanding tradition of providing quality products, excellent service and cutting-edge design options for all customers. The company serves homeowners as well as builders and other commercial development clients. The new Naperville Design Center will offer an expanded collection of forward-thinking finishes on display in its showroom.

Great Western Flooring is always striving to innovate, whether it be through product offerings, installation procedures or user experience. Working in this showroom, the design consultants at Great Western Flooring will be better able to elevate customer engagement with the products, especially when creating tile designs in bath or kitchen, and hardwood or composite flooring designs for other residential rooms or commercial spaces.

Great Western Flooring began in 1981 by serving residential customers as The Great Western Tile Company, but soon expanded to include other flooring materials and an expanded clientele. The company’s success has been built around the cornerstone of accountability, reliability and trust – what Great Western Flooring refers to as the “ART of flooring.” The company has three locations, Naperville, St. Charles and Oswego. Design Consultants are always available in each store to schedule a free consultation. For more information, visit
