Robert Foster- Owner      Lynette Lawson - Store Manager

My name is Bob Foster. I am 50 years old and I have been in the flooring business for 30 years. I started out as an installer helper working all over southern California. As I moved up, I started to specialize in hardwood and laminate flooring. By 2008, I obtained my contractors license and several certifications including moisture testing with IFTI International Certified Flooring Inspector, Mohawk Sales College in 2008, and FCI Estimation Certificate. In 2011, I purchased my first retail store and in 2015, I was able to purchase M&M Carpets. The previous owner had contacted me and offered the business. I was very honored to be the one that, Mike Tate, chose to carry on his legacy. In September of 2016, Mike lost his battle with cancer. With Mike no longer with us, it has been up to myself and Hunter Tate, Mike's oldest son to work as hard as we can and keep the honesty and integrity that this business has had since 1983. We have always been located in Yucaipa. In 2018, we opened a second location in Highland. We are a small family business that always looks to improve the community one room at a time. I thank all of our customers for their loyalty and always trusting in us.)
