Founded by Dale Pearce in 1970, The Carpet Shoppe is proud to be Springfield, MO's most trusted local carpet store offering high-quality flooring of all kinds. From our iconic striped awnings to our 30,000 square foot facility—one of the largest in the region—our local presence and dedication to exceptional service is impossible to miss.

The Carpet Shoppe is a two-time recipient of Springfield HBA's Associate of the Year award, is one of few recipients of SBJ's Economic Impact Award, and has been voted best flooring store in the Springfield News-Leader’s Best of the Ozarks on several occasions.

Our Heart

We're passionate about giving back to our community.

We're fortunate to call Springfield, Mo. home. That's why we do what we can to give back to organizations in our area that work to enrich our community. In 2017, we donated $27,000 to several of those entities, including Missouri State University, Habitat for Humanity, The Kitchen, Breast Cancer Foundation of the Ozarks, and the Price Cutter Charity Gold Tournament.

Featured image is the 2018 HBA Build My Future event where The Carpet Shoppe team visited with students about what it's like to work in the construction industry.

“I had excellent service and my floor sample was exactly like the flooring I selected. The installers were efficient and installed everything as promised. I love my new flooring!”
