About Carpet One Floor & HomeLocated in Ames, Carroll, Spirit Lake and Urbandale, IA
When we say “family owned since 1954,” that sums up a lot of years and a lot of hard work by a lot of good people. Here are a few of the highlights along the way…
In 1954, company founder Harold Bierl opened Bierl Supply Company in his hometown of Carroll, Iowa. The store initially offered hardware, paint and carpet, and operated mainly as a supplier to Harold’s other business, a construction company. The store quickly found its niche selling flooring, and began using the slogan “Bierl's Store of Floors.”
In 1968, the Carroll store was relocated to the new Parkway Plaza in the space just east of its current location. 1970-1982
Bierl Carpet & Furniture, as it was then called, thrived throughout the 1970’s and 80’s. In 1982, they expanded into the neighboring building to the west and added a new warehouse.
In 1991, a second store was added in Ames, Iowa. Originally located on North Grand near the mall, it later moved to its present location on South Duff.
In 1995, the Bierl’s Carpet & Furniture joined Carpet One, an international co-op of almost 1000 independently owned stores and became “Bierl Carpet One.”
In September of 2006, a third store was opened in Spirit Lake, Iowa.
In the winter of 2007, company founder Harold Bierl, passed away. By this time his sons, Todd and Randy, had taken over the day-to-day operation of the business.
In 2008, the Carroll store underwent a major facelift, with a new front façade and completely remodeled showroom. With over 25,000 sq ft of space, Carpet One's Carroll location is the largest flooring store in Iowa. Also in 2008, the Bierls expanded into the Des Moines market, when their forth store was opened in Urbandale.
In 2011 the Urbandale store moved to it’s current location on NW Urbandale Drive.
In 2012 the Spirit Lake store went through major changes with the addition of a new, much larger warehouse and additional showroom highlighting our Hunter Douglas window fashions.
In recent years, the Bierl name has been dropped and the stores are simply known as “Carpet One Floor & Home,” to put emphasis on the strength of the Carpet One brand. Today the focus is on the future. Todd Bierl’s two sons, Colin and Colby – the 3rd generation in this family business – are laying the groundwork for success well into the 21st century.
