The Wells County Chamber of Commerce staff and Ambassadors surprised and congratulated Paul and Rochelle Wickey of CJ’s Flooring, located at 947 N Main St in Bluffton, as the December Member of the Month. CJ’s Flooring has been in Wells County for over 30 years.
Paul and Rochelle Wickey purchased CJ’s Flooring from the Zimmer family two years ago. Paul said he had been in the Tool & Die Business for 21 years and was looking for other opportunities. “I started working for Zimmer’s and learned a lot but had to learn a lot more when I purchased the business a couple of years ago,” explained Paul.
“I have a great crew that works for me, but my main focus is the customer; I want to do everything I possibly can to satisfy their needs,” Paul said. “I want to do what is best and make sure they are happy with the end result; if they are not, it is my goal to make it right.”
CJ’s Flooring offers products such as carpet, hardwood, laminate, luxury vinyl tile, and stone. “Pretty much anything that goes on the floor, we offer,” said Paul.
Giving back in the community is important for both Paul and Rochelle and they have helped many local organizations such as Helping Hands, local schools, Youth for Christ, Loving Shepherd Ministries, and Forgotten Children Worldwide.
“This business has given us the opportunity to help more people and we feel it is important to give back to the people and organizations that make up this community,” explained Rochelle. Rochelle mentors a group of young ladies through a program called MomLife and both Paul and Rochelle teach a re-engage class on marriage at the church.
“This honor means a lot to know that we have the support from the community and from the Chamber of Commerce. We love to support local businesses and serve the people we know and love in the community,” stated Rochelle.
“We are so appreciative of our awesome staff in the showroom and depend on them to be the face of the CJ’s Flooring and we think they represent us well,” Paul said.
“Being a member of the Chamber of Commerce and what they do for businesses has been a positive for our business,” concluded Paul.
