When looking to do home improvement projects like the purchase of any type of floor covering, it is important in these economic times to look at local family owned businesses. These local family businesses help build strong local economies which create environmental, economic, and cultural benefits.
Hemphill’s Rugs & Carpets is a local family business serving the Orange County area and should be first on your list when considering area rugs, carpet, wood floor, cork or leather planks and more. Our showroom offers more than 70 brands of great products for you to consider.
Local family businesses can offer sales on products that rival any mega store. Mega stores only offer a false sense of savings. Hemphill’s Rugs & Carpets has sales on products from companies like Masland, Karastan, Moda, Godfrey Hirst, Fabrica and others.
When you buy close to home you save money on transportation costs. You reduce your fossil fuel use and also your carbon impact.
Local businesses usually buy from other local businesses. So the money you spend at a local family business will stay in the community. It has been estimated that for every hundred dollars spent at local businesses, forty-two dollars will stay in California. For every hundred dollars spent at a national chain, only thirteen stays in the state.
Family businesses have a more unique experience and flavor than the large corporate mega stores. A local business like Hemphill’s Rugs & Carpets listens to their customers. It will offer unique products to beautify homes, offices, schools, and hotels.
The fact that it is a local family business means that it is more connected to the community. They live here too. The kids attend the schools and they use the library. The family is likely to be involved in community activities. Brett Hemphill has been active in the Newport Beach Chamber of Commerce as a member of the Commodore’s Club. He was skipper of the club which organizes and runs community events such as the Newport Beach Christmas Boat Paradewhich Brett has chaired three times. The group also honors the top high school scholars and athletes, has a beach BBQ for the fire fighters and more.
By shopping at local businesses you are making a commitment to the community. The town just wouldn’t be the same without this family business. Hemphill’s Rugs & Carpets has been committed to the Orange County area since 1995. In fact, our other family business, Hemphill’s Shoes, was a part of the Southern California landscape from the early 1930’s until 1988. Local family businesses help build thriving communities that people are proud to live in.
When you chose to shop at local family businesses, you are sending a statement, making a positive impact on the community and saving money. Local businesses, like Hemphill’s Rugs & Carpets, are the backbone to California’s economy.
