( OVER 50 YEARS EXPERIENCE IN THE CARPET INDUSTRY )
My name is Jerrold Glick and I own J.A.G. Carpet Wholesalers, Inc. At the age of nineteen, I went to work for Martin Paint Stores, the largest retail chain of home decorating centers on the East Coast. The over one hundred stores serviced millions of consumers from New York to Illinois. Martin Paint Stores was a complete home-decorating center offering a multitude of products for the home. The third largest division of the company was floor coverings and I immediately developed a special interest in this area and a talent for sales.
After just a couple of years, I was promoted to Store Manager at one of Martin’s stores and from there, to stores of greater size and volume.
In 1966, I was promoted to Head of Merchandising in the chain’s floor covering division. In addition to purchasing, distribution, merchandise
pricing, warehousing and advertising of all floor-covering products, my responsibilities included sales training and development of District
Supervisors, Store Managers and all sales personnel.
In 1977, I decided to expand my career into the wholesale side of the business and joined Royal Ambassador Rugs, a national carpet and rug
sales agency. As their VP of Sales, I used my eleven years of experience in retail to successfully buy and private label merchandise, which
was sold by major retail chains throughout the United States.
After two years, I became a partner in Royal Ambassador acquiring fifty percent of the company and remained there for another fifteen years.
In 1993, I created J.A.G. Carpet & Rug Distributors Inc. a company servicing the northeast from Philadelphia to New England. Founded in a
ten thousand square foot warehouse in Brooklyn, NY, my operation wholesales to small retail chains, independent carpet stores,
home centers and floor covering contractors. In addition, we service the public directly, and in 2003 began to supply many NYC Public Schools
with bound area rugs for student reading and rest areas.
I have now ventured into the world of online sales through my new nationwide e-store. Please feel free to browse the online selections,
call with questions, or, if you’re in the area, stop by the store and say hello to me.
Presently as of April 2009 I have started a new company called J.A.G. Carpet Wholesalers, Inc. located at 182-04 Liberty Ave. in Saint Albans,
Queens, N.Y. which will be catering to the nationwide direct sales on the internet. Our internet business has been continually growing.
Also our product line will be expanded into a much larger selection of carpet runners, non-skid carpet & rug paddings, area rugs, & other related products.
This is an installation of one of our Woven runner designs, on 2 different type stairways with carpet to match on the sides of the steps and also the stringers which are the sidewall
section of the stairway. It’s one of the many ways to have a magnificent decorating installation looking like a million $$$$ for all your guests to rave about.
