Our History

A Flooring Store with a Real Story

Our first store was opened in 1958 in Avalon, New Jersey by John Millar, who led by example with his strong work ethic, a dedication to employee growth and retention, and an understanding that even small details can make a large impact. His commitment to the vitality of his employees fostered a devoted team, and created a tight knit Avalon Flooring ‘family’.

This legacy of culture and local community bond still continues to be a part of the organization…

even after Mr. Millar’s passing. He cared deeply about the company and its employees and wanted to ensure that Avalon would thrive and grow after he was gone. To that end, the company first became partially employee-owned in 2003 and then transitioned to be 100% employee-owned in 2018 so that Mr. Millar’s legacy could live on by giving back to the team while also strengthening the ties of Avalon Flooring within our growing showroom communities.

It’s why we treat your home like our home.

With 15 showrooms across New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Delaware, our company has remained dedicated to being an active member of our local communities, and staying connected to the people who make these places so very special. Our teams enjoy knowing their neighbors, growing these relationships, and being invited into homes and businesses through the various projects they undertake together.
