Famous TN Home May Be Downed to Make Room for Car Wash 

If you are of a certain age, you will recall Elvis Presley, and if you were a fan, you will know that he made Tennessee his home. Many of his friends and family did the same, including his manager Col. Tom Parker. It is the Parker home that is in the news today, as there are plans to demolish the beloved place in order to make space for a car wash. Is this a good idea or a bad idea? You decide. Here is a bit of the story that reported this:

“MADISON, TN — A small stone house that was once the nerve center of the brain behind Elvis Presley's empire may be razed to make way for a car wash, but efforts to save it from the wrecking ball got a boost Thursday. If Elvis was The King, Col. Tom Parker was his Cardinal Richelieu and the house at 1215 Gallatin Pike in Madison, east of downtown Nashville, was his Palais-Cardinal.”

At Feel Good Floors in Lexington, TN, we believe in the free market, but sometimes we have to scratch our heads and wonder “what are they thinking?” Many of our customers come to us, because they know that they can get the right answers to their questions through the reliable flooring information, that we always provide for free. There is no substitute for knowledge, and, frankly, buying new flooring without knowing all there is to know about it, can lead future disappointment.

For instance, there are many kinds of stain-resistant carpeting systems on the market, but they are not all the same. Some carpets are good at resisting stains, which is fine for homes with adults who only occasionally spill liquids, while others are super resistant and even repel the liquid right off the fibers. This would be better option for homes that have active kids or pets. This is the kind of flooring information consumers need if they are to make the best buying decision for their individual needs.

Anyone who is thinking about new flooring is welcome to come by the Feel Good Floors showroom and ask us about our flooring options. We are always happy to provide the most accurate and honest flooring information to help you get your flooring needs right.
