Flooring expert  

David Iles Jr. - Store Owner/President


Never meets a stranger, hardworking, and devoted to the flooring business. David has been in business since 1984, and is a sales professional highly trained in the flooring industry. He loves working with customers and helping them make great selections. David opened The Floor Store & More, Inc. back in 1984. It merged with Carpet One a few years back, adding to the many other stores already in the Carpet One co-op. We’re now celebrating over 25 years in the business.


When David started out, he was the sales person, bookkeeper, installation manager, and installer. These days, he has a full crew, that help him with his business. However, he still has some of the same customers that got him started years ago. He is a good honest hard working father who believes you should always give 100%, which is why he has so many repeat customers.

Expertise is what we offer you on so many levels.

Connie came to us from a natural stone company in January of 2004. She now works the sales floor along with the office. While she's never worked on the installation end, Connie offers extensive knowledge when it comes to our products and services.




Lana Chandler - Bookkeeping Dept.


Lana joined the Floor Store team in 2006 and has always enjoyed the challenge of working with numbers. Her position gives her the opportunity to do this daily, and with 34 years of bookkeeping experience under her belt, she is a huge asset to the company. Lana graduated from Dunham Springs High School and attended Southeastern Louisiana University majoring in accounting. In her spare time, Lana loves to be with her family, especially her two grandkids. She also enjoys crafting projects and woodworking as a pastime.
