More than a year after it originally planned to open, District Floor Depot has set a date for a ribbon-cutting ceremony to celebrate the launch of its new store in Herndon.
The hardwood flooring retailer had anticipated opening its new showroom at 1051 Elden Street back in April 2020, but the arrival of the COVID-19 pandemic derailed those plans, according to District Floor Depot Managing Partner Yusuf Mehmetoglu.
The new store has been welcoming customers since Oct. 12, when it had a soft opening, but the ribbon cutting was canceled to ensure the event would be in compliance with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s social distancing guidelines, Mehmetoglu says.
Now, District Floor Depot will finally get to introduce itself to downtown Herndon with a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 9 a.m. on June 24.
“We opened the District Floor Depot Herndon location to help customers make great design choices and to make the best flooring options accessible to them at a great price,” Mehmetoglu said.
This is District Floor Depot’s third store. The retailer opened its original location at 1600 Rhode Island Avenue in D.C. in April 2017, followed by a second spot in the District at 1306 Good Hope Road SE.
A fourth store in College Park, Maryland, is currently in the works, according to the company’s website.
In addition to selling various types of flooring, including hardwood, vinyl, and bamboo, District Floor Depot provides related accessories and services, such as restorations, stains and finishes, moldings, and cleaning products.
Refreshments will be served at the ribbon-cutting ceremony, and attendees will also be able to enter to win gift cards and floor cleaning kits, Mehmetoglu says, adding that he’s thankful for the Town of Herndon and all residents and businesses that have already stopped by the showroom.
“We offer top quality flooring including everything from hardwood to bamboo and reclaimed to vinyl,” Managing Partner Mani Pahlevanpour said in a press release. “We are committed to providing our customers with the best flooring options at the best prices, without compromising quality or customer service.”
