    Dear Readers,

    With the upcoming holiday season speeding towards us at an alarming rate, I am reminded of why I love this time of year. Its not about shopping, and giving or getting presents. Its not about eating my way through the many parties and events that happen at this time of year. Its about the little moments - the smile on your familys faces when you sit down to Thanksgiving dinner and give thanks for another year that you are together, and for the triumphs and the struggles, because without the struggles we would never learn and grow. Its seeing a childs face light up as your decorate the Christmas tree, or make Christmas Cookies - as you make memories with them that will last a lifetime.

    I have seen a lot of posts about large box stores staying closed on Thanksgiving and giving their employees time with their families - when did that become the exception, not the rule. If you must shop on Black Friday, I challenge each of you to shop at small independent retailers both Friday and Saturday, and support those owners because they have kids in our schools, they go to our churches, they volunteer at our non-profi ts and they put their faith in a dream. Help make their dreams a reality and keep your dollars local, where they will do the most good.

    Until next month, Happy Thanksgiving!

    Majestic Floor CoveringBuilding Relationships ... One Floor at a Time!

    Majestic Floor Covering is growing by leaps and bounds, and they held an Asheboro/Randolph Chamber of Commerce ribbon cutting and Open House on October 1st. Owner Mike Key welcomed guests to the new location at 1495 South Main Street, Randleman and thanked his late friend and business partner, Dagoberto Robert Salazar for pushing him to go into business with him 12 years ago. Roberts family attended the Open House and his son, Robert Salazar, Jr. was on hand to cut the ribbon.

    The event was a huge success. They provided a sumptuous spread from Something Different Catering and tours of the new facility throughout the day. Mike and the staff of Majestic Floor Covering were pleased to see so many of the local community members come out in support of their new facility, and both past and present customers as well.

    Mike Key grew up in Asheboro and began his career working for Bostic Construction in Greensboro as a Flooring and Hardware Division Manager. He worked

    closely with Robert Salazar, who owned R & L Carpet and subcontracted with Bostic. When Bostic went out of business in 2003, Robert convinced Mike that they should start their own company and they created Majestic Floor Covering.

    In April, 2011 on his way to a job, Robert was killed in a truck accident. He was a great partner, friend and family man, leaving behind a wife and three beautiful children. His persistence paid off in pushing us to start this business. I wouldnt be where I am today without Robert and he will never be forgotten. Mike Key.

    The first two years in business they handled floor coverings carpet, tile, vinyl, hardwood, etc. By 2005 they expanded their business to include turnkey operations consisting of shelving, shower doors, signage, bath hardware, blinds, bath partitions, mirrors and faucets, fire extinguishers, and mailboxes for multi-family units in addition to flooring. This Turnkey Operation opened the market to fulfill both Flooring and Hardware needs to Contractors without them having to shop around

    and deal with multiple companies to complete a project. This marketing niche has allowed Majestic to gain a strong foothold in the industry. As that ability became known, Majestic expanded its services to not only North Carolina, its home base, but also spread to South Carolina, Virginia, Tennessee, West Virginia and Georgia.

    Construction on the new showroom and warehouse facility began in early 2015 and they relocated
