Marysville flooring store Flooring Direct opened their doors this month for their first retail location.
The new, locally owned Marysville business is located at 1347 State Ave., Marysville.
The store offers a variety of flooring options for homes.
“We offer pretty much everything you walk on,” said owner Dmitriy Kutsyy. That includes options such as carpet, hardwood, tile and laminate.
“We provide installation services and sell the material here,” said Kutsyy
Flooring Direct has been in business since 2010 but hasn’t had a retail storefront before now.
“We just had a warehouse out in Snohomish and this will be our first retail store,” said Kutsyy.
Kutsyy said he was aiming for Marysville to open the business’ first retail location.
“We love Marysville. We do most of our work in Marysville and we work with a lot of homeowners and realtors here, so we always had the plan to open our first store here because we fell in love with the city,” he said.
So far he said he has enjoyed being open in Marysville.
“It’s just been great here,” he said.
“We saw a lot of places when we were looking at places, but we wanted to be on State Avenue. It’s been great and busy. We are having a lot of fun meeting new people around here,” he said.
Kutsyy said he has enjoyed all of the new people who have come in to meet the business.
“Most of the people walking in here were saying that Marysville needed a fresh store in here,” he said.
Before starting his own business Kutsyy worked as an assistant, installing carpets himself.
He hopes that experience will improve the customer experience at his new retail location in Marysville.
“I’ve been an installer so I know what people are looking for when they’re getting their floors done,” he said.
Kutsyy said he looks forward to meeting Marysville residents and being a part of the community.
“All are welcome here and anything we can do we’ll do what we can,” he said.
“We’re excited to get in with the Marysville community and reach people we couldn’t reach before,” he said.
The store is open Mondays through Thursdays from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., Fridays from 8:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Saturdays from 9:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.
