Donna Dwyre, Co-Owner - Cove Carpet One Floor & Home.

SUMMIT, NJ - As 'Small Business Saturday' -- a day created to celebrate the local businesses that make communities special -- is set to arrive, Summit's very own Cove Carpet One Floor & Home is as an example of the merchants Hilltop City customers can find in 'their own back yard' that offer the many advantages they receive when they 'shop local'.

Locally-owned and operated and a member of North America’s largest flooring cooperative, Cove Carpet One Floor & Home benefits from economies of scale and collective knowhow, providing customers with the best prices, leading expertise, and the most innovative products the flooring industry has to offer. These advantages are combined with Cove's community-driven, customer-centric values typical of a small, locally-owned retailer.

“Being a part of both our industry’s largest cooperative and the smaller Summit community, allows us to offer our customers the best of both worlds – great value and personalized service,” said Donna Dwyre of Cove Carpet One Floor & Home. “That’s something we’re extremely proud of.”
