Twenty-three years ago, Day’s Floor Company didn’t exist. We bought the business from a man named Weston Horst. He had grown a small floor-covering store on the far south side of Springfield. As a part of the sale of his business, Weston agreed to stay for a short time and offer his knowledge and expertise as a floor covering professional. During that time, we got to know him as a clever and light-hearted man, not to mention a sharp businessman.
Last month, Weston passed away. We owe him a good deal of respect, as it was his mentorship and guidance that helped get Day’s Floor Company started. We want to honor Weston, so we try to carry on those key lessons he preached in those early days: don’t be wasteful; treat your customers with respect; be fair with everyone in your dealings.
Our goal is that all of our customers and partners get to see a glimpse of the kind of fair and honest work that Weston Horst started in his store so many years ago.
