Meet Hilary Repa, owner of the Rug Merchant in Rockland
What services does your business specialize in?
We predominantly sell and install carpets and rugs. We excel at wall-to-wall carpeting but are probably better known for our specialty work. Most people don’t notice a fantastically installed wall-to-wall, but a fantastic stair runner can stop them in their tracks!
What inspired you to pursue this line of work?
My background is in design. I have made jewelry since the age of 14 and I believe that my eye for color and proportion has been instrumental in the creative work that I do at The Rug Merchant.
What sets your company apart from the competition?
Our experienced sales staff cares about our customers and personal service is our trademark. Our goal is to stay one or two steps ahead by always delivering fresh, exciting options. Our showroom, fabrication rooms and warehouse occupy over 21,000 square feet of space, which allows us to offer customers an amazing selection of rug and carpet choices. We love discovering new trends and working with clients to incorporate that excitement into their homes. Our staff comes up with fresh ideas whenever new rugs or samples arrive at the showroom and that sense of energy and excitement is passed onto our customers.
What do you love most about your job?
It’s fashion—who doesn’t love fashion? I have the pleasure of helping customers create beautiful, happy spaces in their home. And a happy customer is a repeat customer.
