Our journey began with a passion for quality flooring and a commitment to providing exceptional service to our community, Murphy, NC.

Our Humble Beginnings

In the early 70s, Hoyt Palmer, Alice Cook Palmer, and Arvil Cook (Fred’s Uncle) established the first carpet and flooring store below Murphy Medical Center at Old Smithmont. Back then, a young Fred Cook, aged 14, lent his hands to flooring installations, unknowingly setting the stage for his future in the industry.

A Legacy Continues

Fred's dedication led him to take over the business in 1989. With a strong work ethic and a keen eye for excellence, Fred purchased Arvil Cook's store, laying the foundation for what we now know as Cook’s Carpet. Through hard work and determination, Fred honed his skills and even earned a Flooring-Craftsman-B Certificate from Dekalb Community College.

Expanding Horizons

As years passed, the Cook family's business flourished. The store expanded its reach, welcomed new family members (Chuck and Jill), and witnessed the emergence of the next generation. Chuck Cook (Fred’s son), following in his family's footsteps, ventured into the industry and established his own carpet and flooring store in Waynesville, NC in 2012. In 2016, the Waynesville location proudly joined the esteemed Carpet One Floor & Home Cooperative.


In 2023, an exciting transformation took place. Chuck and his wife, Barbara, acquired the Murphy, NC store from Fred and Wanda, marking a new chapter in the business. The showroom underwent an impressive remodel and joined Carpet One. This revamp embodies our dedication to providing the finest flooring solutions while embracing innovation.
