A long time ago Lisa, and Chris came to work with Art (that’s me) making us the original elders. In 1993 Chris was an installer looking for pallet pricing on tile.  In secret, he was a musician with a desire to play guitar like Van Halen. So I hired him.  After 25+ years he thinks he is a my partner so I allow him to join me  every night in our cigar room. (Like Denny Crane and Alan Shore from “Boston Legal”).  There we ponder the  problems of the day and counsel each other. He is part owner only because I want to golf more often. Lisa started work here in 1996. She was just a young girl teaching dance at Karla Pattavina’s Dance Academy out of Haverhill MA.  She is now married with two young girls. Good luck with that! We all know how tough marriage is.  I would say how old her girls are but then I will have to update this page every year. There is a strong Haverhill connection to Instock Flooring.  Both Lisa and Chris are from Haverhill.  Both my sons (Kenny and Sam) as well as my daughter (Hannah), are Haverhillites.   I am from the Cape and though I am reminded that  I have lived in Haverhill for 30+ years I remind them that I still have no clue as to where Lafayette Square is. Con thinks he is a professional softball player, as if that exist!  We let him deal with our retail customers because they like him so much.  Sam (son #2) works as an accountant,  20/20 designing cabinets, web designer, measures and quotes jobs,helps out in the warehouse and beats me in tetris 2 on SNES. Cat came from a cabinet background.  She acts so happy all the time that I suspect it is just a mask.  I do  not know what she is hiding but I am determined to find out.  Her daughter, Kitty?, helps out on Saturdays. Colin joined our gang at the beginning of 2019. He just showed up one day and someone said “look what Cat brought in”.  Well he is not only a cabinet aficionado (a person who is very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about an activiity, subject, or pastime) he also teaches the 20/20 cabinet program, is master designer and like Lisa is married and has two girls but to different persons. Kali is a young girl who is smart and has a tattoo... can you say oxymoron?  I do not like tattoos. The word “tattoo” is weird. If you have one does that make you a tattii? Tattoo aside, she is showing a lot of promise and can have a very bright future here. Drew is new.  He brings 30 years experience coming from a store that recently closed. We were told by all the installers that knew him that he was kind and everyone liked him.  So we were thrilled to bring him on board.  In the short time he has been here it is clear he belongs and offers Chris some much needed assistance in order for us to continue our growth. We are guided by 3 simple rules: 1.  Builders must be nice or they should pay on time. 2.  Unless ordained we are not allowed to bless each other….best not to sneeze! 3.  Stay out of politics!   When we first opened our store we had a sign that read “Republicans welcome”on one side and  “Democrats welcome” on the other. That was a big mistake!
