Our story is a family story....
Our story began in March 1990 in a tiny boutique style carpet and vinyl showroom in the Ngaio shopping centre. This store was very unusual as it was the era of the huge carpet warehousebarn type stores.
Founded by Malcolm Patterson and Donald Devon, the Ngaio days were very good. Our focus was on giving great pricing and service, and so the business flourished with the surrounding, supportive community who were very loyal to our little business.
Donald Devon left the company in 1996and now lives in Australia with his wife and seven children, butDevon + Patterson Flooring lived in Ngaio for ten happy years.
Opening of our Johnsonville Store
In March 2000 an opportunity arose to move to the old Brigidine Convent in Johnsonville (straight opposite the Johnsonville railway station) using the original churchchapel as our showroom. This gave us a larger showroom, yet still boutique, cosy, welcoming and unique. That store is managed and owned by Malcolm and Gail Patterson.
Opening of our Tawa Store
The day to day business flourished but we found there was a strong market for carpet and vinyl short ends and roll stock of both carpets and vinyls, including quality carpet seconds. In 2004 we opened our warehouse outlet division. The speed in which this business has grown confirmed the need for a discount flooring warehouse in north Wellington selling quality discountedcarpet and vinylin top fashion colours. This store is managed by our daughter Rachel (Patterson) Alderson.
