About Callahan's Carpet One


50 Years of Integrity

Third generation owner Larry Callahan and his family proudly continue the tradition of service and honest expertise begun by his grandfather in 1960. In a time when big box stores promise the moon (and then under-deliver), Callahan's understands that fair prices and quality craftsmanship outshine the big guys every time. Callahan's strives for your satisfaction today, tomorrow and a decade from now. With strong community roots, Callahan's intends to provide exceptional service to customers in Summit county for generations to come.

A Legacy of Innovation

When Lawrence "Cal" Callahan opened Callahan's Carpet One on South Water Street in Kent, Ohio in March, 1960, he was the first independent carpeting retailer in Portage County. With the invention of tufted carpet, home owners were drawn to the new concept of 'wall to wall carpeting', which became significantly more affordable in the sixties. Providing exceptional service at fair prices, Cal outlasted even the big box stores of the time (Polskis & O'Neils) and his original 600 square foot store grew to encompass a 10,000 square foot showroom, with offices and a warehouse. No longer just a carpet store, the latest hard surface products continued to be introduced every year.

Hudson's Flooring Experts

Callahan's Carpet One storefront

Cal's son James assumed leadership of the business in 1984, and after enjoying a long term relationship with the families and businesses of Hudson, James and his son Larry opened a showroom in Hudson in the fall of 2002. By 2008, it was time to update the showroom, so Larry moved the original Hudson showroom just a bit north on Darrow Road into its current location at Orchard Plaza. The showroom is much better suited for customers to appreciate the design and aesthetic of new flooring for their homes.
