Happy 25th an­niver­sary to Shep­herd’s Car­pets

Serve Daily - - FOSTERING INNOVATION - By Ra­mona Hurst

Shep­herd’s Car­pets and Fur­ni­ture in Span­ish Fork opened its doors Fe­bru­ary 1990. They have been a sta­ple in the Utah and Juab county area for 25 years.

Kent Shep­herd worked for the pre­vi­ous owner as an in­staller. When the owner de­cided to close the store, Kent talked to his wife Kathie and af­ter some se­ri­ous con­tem­pla­tion, they de­cided to bite the bul­let and pur­chase the busi­ness.

It was an ex­cit­ing but also a fright­en­ing time. Kathie had an as­so­ciate’s de­gree in ac­count­ing, so here was the per­fect op­por­tu­nity to put her ed­u­ca­tion to work. With Kathie’s de­gree and Kent’s knowl­edge and abil­ity as an in­staller, they found their way through the ups and downs and ins and outs of own­ing a busi­ness.

The years slipped by at a crazy pace. They saw good growth and ex­panded the store, keep­ing up with the chang­ing times. There were some lean years as the econ­omy slowed. At one point Kent con­sid­ered sell­ing the busi­ness. Soon the busi­ness was grow­ing again and they re­al­ized they needed more space. They moved next door to 77 E. Industrial Park Drive, which has now changed to 1327 N. 200 East due to the new road con­struc­tion cre­at­ing a new free­way ac­cess.

This con­struc­tion has cre­ated some grief for Shep­herd’s. How­ever, due to their loyal cus­tomers, the busi­ness is do­ing won­der­fully. They are work­ing with Span­ish Fork City to cre­ate an eas­ier way to the store than the one now avail­able. Hope­fully they won’t have to wait too long.

Shep­herd’s Car­pets and Fur­ni­ture is known for its down-home ser­vice. Its own­ers want their cus­tomers to feel like fam­ily. When you come in to the store you can ex­pect a friendly, fam­ily-style ex­pe­ri­ence. Kathie, Christi, Jen­nifer, Robert and Con­nie are wait­ing to give you all the help you need to im­prove your home. They are well trained, friendly and ac­com­mo­dat­ing. Their in­stall­ers have been with Shep­herd’s for many years and of­fer out­stand­ing, qual­ity in­stal­la­tions.

Shep­herd’s does all types of floor­ing, from car­pet and tile to wood, lam­i­nate, LVT and vinyl. They are cur­rently chang­ing their in­ven­tory to car­ry­ing smaller fur­ni­ture items such as re­clin­ers, ta­bles, mat­tresses and an as­sort­ment of ac­ces­sories. They have de­cided to carry coun­ter­tops such as quartz, etc. They are al­ways in­ter­ested in what their clients want and they pro­vide a good va­ri­ety.

For their an­niver­sary, they are of­fer­ing $3 off short rolls and 20 per­cent off ac­ces­sories and chairs. So come down to Shep­herd’s Car­pets and Fur­ni­ture at 1327 N. 200 East in Span­ish Fork and ex­pe­ri­ence the un­hur­ried feel of shop­ping with peo­ple who will put you first and will help in ev­ery way pos­si­ble.

The An­niver­sary Sale will run through the sum­mer, so you have plenty of time to make plans and up­date your home.

Kathie and Kent Shep­herd are cel­e­brat­ing 25 years in busi­ness.
