New Ownership at CJ’s Flooring
The Wells County Chamber of Commerce staff and Ambassadors celebrated a re-Grand Opening with new owners Paul and Rochelle Wickey of CJ’s Flooring on Friday, May 25 at 947 N Main Street, Bluffton.
Paul had been in the tool and die business for 21 years and decided he wanted to do something different. “I worked in sales for a while but was traveling all over and wanted to be home more,” explained Paul. In June 2017 Paul left his sales position and started working for previous CJ’s Flooring owners, Jeremy and Shannon Zimmer, to help with the day-to-day operations of the business.
Zimmer’s recently decided to sell the business and Paul and Rochelle Wickey, along with partners, Darin and Kim Ringger, bought CJ’s Flooring this year. “We prayed about this a lot and we didn’t want to do this on our own and the opportunity to partner together made sense,” said Paul. “This business provides a great service and quality to the community and we want to keep a hometown business running with the goal to uphold that same standards as it has done for the past 30 years.”
“We have approximately 7 installers and they do great work,” added Rochelle. “You can have a great product, but it doesn’t matter how good the product is unless you have quality installers.”
CJ’s Flooring offers a variety of products for the home and business such as carpet, hardwood, laminate, luxury vinyl tile, tile and stone.
