Bob’s Carpet & Flooring serves the commercial and residential flooring community of Tampa Bay and the surrounding areas of Florida with the largest selection of flooring options from the most trusted manufacturers in the market. And it all began with Bob. The first of twelve children, Bob Butler was born in Virginia. Although his first job was on a farm, Bob proudly served in the United States Air Force before landing in retail. It was while selling carpet door-to-door that Bob discovered his passion for flooring. And in 1969, Bob opened his doors in Bradenton, Florida.
