Kenny’s Floor Covering Inc is a family owned business and tradition since 1957. Kenny’s Floor Covering of Muncie, Indiana has been serving Muncie and surrounding areas for over 50 yearas. Kenny’s Floor Covering Inc. got started by Kenneth Stafford in the early 1950s. Kenneth was employed at Warner Gear and also did floor covering on the side. In 1957, Kenny opened a flooring store and named it Kenny’s Floor Covering Inc. To this day, the store is still ran by Kenny’s family members.
The family tradition got started as soon as the store opened. Kenny’s father, Arthur Stafford, helped Kenny in the store. Ronald Stafford, Kenny’s son, started working for his father in the store in his high school years and continued his career at Kenny’s’ Floor Covering. Ron became the manager in 1966 and retired in 2009. Pete Stafford, Ron’s oldest son, and Amy Jones, one of his daughters, took over the store when Ron retired. Here recently Pete’s daughter, Chelsea Stafford, has joined the family owned store.
Kenny’s Floor Covering Inc. did consist of two stores. There was a store on the south side of Muncie on 900 West and then the second store on the north side of Muncie on Enterprise Avenue. The south store closed and consolidated with the north store. There is only one store, but Kenny’s still uses the number from the south store. There are two numbers you can call to get ahold of any of the staff at Kenny’s Floor Covering. These numbers are (765) 289-2231 and (765) 289-1077.
Gary Nawodzinski has been with the store since 1987. Gary is one of the members who is always at the store to answer any questions a customer has about anything dealing with the store and its products.
Kenny’s Floor Covering Incorporated has been locally owned and operated out of Muncie for over 50 years. We, the staff and installers, take pride in offering personal customer service as well as quality products and installation. This is important in this time of age when good service can be hard to find.
Our previous owner Ron Stafford passed away on January 23 after a long battle with ALS and Progressive Supranuclear Palsy. He fought with determination and patience.
Ron was with Kenny’s Flooring for 52 years, retiring in 2009. He is survived by his family and his Kenny’s Flooring family.
A celebration of his life will be held on Friday, January 26 at 2 pm.
