1 comment 1000's of consumers we were taken in by Empire Today's easy plan of having a sales rep come to the home, pick out your carpet and have it installed the next day. Ideal yes...but in the long run it would have been a wiser choice to hop in the car drive to a bone fide carpet store and pick out our own and talk with someone who KNOWS about the product s/he is selling.

The sales rep we dealt with at Empire was very nice, seemed to know what he was talking about, told us that we had made an excellent choice in carpet, wrote out the contract, signed and carpet was installed the next promised. However, one glitch in all this (w/sale our carpet was close to $5000.00)...when the installers arrived they immediately asked for payment. We told them after installation then they would be their check. WOUld they accept a, had to be either cash or money order. My husband went round and round with the installer before he called the sales manager...when he finally agreed to accept a check. (Who has that much cash in the house? Why weren't we told what the terms of payment were...shady if you ask me) Well, we've had the carpet in for a year...looks like it's been in for 100 yrs...flat, dirty, looks like a rag. My husband and I are now looking to get new carpet installed.

Oh, and the carpet we picked out...wasn't the same carpet that was installed. Color is whoever reads this, please be aware of what you choose..make sure it is what is delivered. Or...better yet, do not waste your good hard earned money. Go elsewhere.

The carpet is a lower grade than apartment quality. Worse of the worse.

Empire asks for $25 to hold their quote for 3 days. You can cancel in the interim.

We canceled and they told us they would send us the check for $25. Two years later we have not seen the check.

They have phoned 5 times to tell us they owe us the $25 and to check the mailing address - still nothing. They are a bunch of sharks.
