About Us

Our History

In 1957, The Carpet Shop was founded in the Augusta, GA, market just as wall-to-wall carpeting was on the cutting edge of interior design. Over the years, the expansion of styles and services – including hardwoods, tile, luxury vinyl, and more – also brought about a change in the company's name to Merit. As the business has evolved, several specialty businesses have developed under the Merit brand: The flagship location on Wrightsboro Road in Augusta, GA, is home to Merit Commercial, which focuses on commercial, builder, and multi-family projects. The Merit Home location in Aiken, SC, concentrates on the design-build side of the residential market. From flooring and cabinets to countertops and plumbing fixtures, Merit Home is a one-stop solution for your renovation project. In the winter of 2023, the Evans, GA, location of Merit welcomed Carpet One to their family of businesses to serve the residential retail division as Merit Carpet One. With this acquisition, we're still a locally-owned, independently operated store but now part of a worldwide cooperative with more than 1,000 stores. This means you, the flooring customer, benefit from dealing with a company you know and trust while receiving the savings and selection of a national chain at our Evans location.
