Happy 25th anniversary to Shepherd’s Carpets
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.
