Floor and D�cor Outlets of America is cashing in on the home improvement craze. The hard-surface flooring and accessories retailer operates 20-plus stores in half a dozen states, including California, Florida, and Texas. The company stocks a selection of hardwood floors, flooring tiles (ceramic, granite, marble, porcelain, slate, travertine), decorative bathroom items (sinks, glass and wall tiles), and the tools necessary to perform flooring jobs (grout, mouldings, wet saws). By bypassing distributors, Floor and D�cor can offer its products at 20% to 50% less than its competition. Founded in 2001, the company has ambitious plans to equal the market share of big-box rivals Home Depot and Lowe's in its markets.
