Wednesday afternoon, the Wilton Chamber of Commerce held a ribbon cutting to officially welcome Westwood Flooring and Design Center to Wilton. Located at 643 Danbury Rd., the spot is a showroom for customers to view an array of samples for wood flooring, laminate flooring, ceramic, porcelain and stone tile, carpet and stone slabs.
Manager Mike Paolello said he hopes Wilton residents will come to view the new business as a resource for all their design needs. “We’re pretty much a one-stop shop, because we do all finishes from tile, carpet, wood, countertop fabrication, vinyl and stone. We’re a second-generation business, and between me and my partner we have 35 years experience in this business.”
He said that customer service is a priority in their company philosophy. “Good service and quality installation. From kitchen and bath, to hardwood, laminate and everything in between. We do it all, from measuring to specifying products. My sales people have design background and we have full installation service. We also work with builders and contractors, so we do unfinished, new construction or small renovations. We can put a good plan together with all the finishes, all under one roof.”
Paolello said that part of the decision to open in the Wilton location was the fact that Calico Corners is right next door. “They’ve been their 38 years. They’ve given me seating and furniture [to use] and we’re going to be doing some wood floors in there. It’s been a great marriage so far, and they’re happy to have us too.”
The Wilton location is the company’s fourth location; the others are located in Ossining, NY; Cortland Manor, NY; and Old Greenwich, CT.
