TOANO, Va., June 4, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Lumber Liquidators (NYSE: LL), the largest specialty retailer of hardwood flooring in North America, is marking a major milestone of 400 stores with a grand opening celebration on June 9 at its new store in Elk Grove, California.
Lumber Liquidators' first store opened in West Roxbury, Massachusetts, in 1994. Today, the company has locations in 46 states and in Ontario, Canada, and employs more than 2,000 people.
"We are grateful to our customers who have supported Lumber Liquidators over the years to contribute to our progress and growth," said Dennis Knowles, Chief Executive Officer. "Having 400 stores is a testament to the company's success in offering great quality and value, and this milestone underscores the excellent customer service and innovative styles that Lumber Liquidators provides in delivering flooring solutions for every room."
Lumber Liquidators brings a low-cost, no-middleman flooring approach to homeowners and professionals alike. The company offers a vast selection of more than 400 floors in the latest styles and trends, including its cornerstone Bellawood hardwood brand — now with an expanded artisan line designed to capture timeworn charm and character. Other leading brands include CoreLuxe rigid vinyl plank and Avella wood-look porcelain tile, both offering waterproof protection, and the Dream Home Ultra X20 laminate is two times more water-resistant than standard laminate flooring. The company's Morning Star brand is the number-one selling brand of bamboo in the country.
"From inspiration to installation, Lumber Liquidators is proud to stay true to the company's original value proposition of price, selection, quality, availability, and service," said Knowles. "Our customers consistently find beautiful flooring at the lowest prices, and we are excited to continue to offer leading brands and innovative styles as we celebrate 400 stores nationwide and look toward the future."
Lumber Liquidators further supports customers with its Install+ service, which provides the simplest and most convenient way to get new floors installed, while its Pro+ service team provides assistance to professionals for projects of any size.
The company has demonstrated its dedication to safety, sustainability, and environmental stewardship by earning GREENGAURD Gold and FloorScore certifications for indoor air quality.

Laying It Forward for the 400th

This principle also inspires the lasting quality and sustainability of Lumber Liquidators' products.
