Originally founded in October of 1970 by Jim Lombardo Sr. and his father Steve, Carpet One Port Dover began as a small store at the corner of Main & Water Street. Although wholesale suppliers warned that Port Dover was too small a town to support a carpet store, we’ve grown into a multi-generational family business focused on flooring and kitchen products. In 1971, Jim Sr. married Diane, and they ran the store together. Today, fourth generation owners, Jim Jr. and Chris Lombardo, have taken over running the business from their parents. Carpet One Port Dover was the first in Canada to be rated a Five Diamond store for its excellence in carpeting installation, and the first store in Haldimand-Norfolk to be government-certified for flooring installations.
Twenty-five years after opening, we joined Carpet One, the largest flooring co-op in North America. Being a part of the cooperative allows us to compete with big box stores that monopolize the market. That way we can bring you competitively low flooring prices while staying true to our local roots. In 2012, the Lombardo family built a new facility at 608 Hwy 6 Port Dover, expanding their business to 7000 square feet. At the same time, they opened a second division within the store, offering a full line of kitchen and bathroom cabinets, quartz countertops, and accessories. This addition was warmly welcomed by the community, with customers enjoying a one-stop-shop for all their home renovation needs. Carpet One Port Dover is proud to now carry window coverings and Canadian-made Cloverdale Paint.
Jim Jr. and Chris are committed to carrying on the store’s legacy of serving the community and people of our area. They are both volunteer firefighters, and they each played baseball and hockey for many years for Port Dover teams. Carpet One Port Dover still sponsors local teams in order to support future generations of youth athletes. Jim Jr. and Chris are also married and have two children each. Jim Jr. and family love to camp while Chris and his family enjoy boating.
Currently, there are 10 full-time staff members and 6 full-time installation crews – all working tirelessly to provide the best possible services and installations for you. It's been our pleasure to serve the flooring needs of the Norfolk County and Haldimand area for more than 53 years.
