Carpeteria stores date back half a century, the company founded in 1960 in Santa Clarita by two brothers, Harold and Ted Haserjian. The company sells and installs flooring for business and residential customers.
At it’s peak the company had almost 60 locations throughout California and Nevada, many of them franchised. By 1999, however, the company was on the brink of bankruptcy, and sold most of its franchises to their respective owners. Today, the company has 5 locations throughout the Northern California area, most of them in the greater San Francisco area.
Carpeteria is best known for the giant 3-D like giant fiberglass Genies perched on top of rooftops, holding a rolled up carpet. The company has two large warehouses for distribution in the Greater Bay area and headquarters located in San Leandro, California.
