City Floor Supply Commemorates the 1 Year Anniversary of the Fire that Destroyed their Headquarters and Distribution Center

May 17, 2016 — Today marks the 1 year anniversary of the fire that leveled City Floor Supply’s (formerly Philadelphia Floor Store) warehouse and distribution center. While thankfully no one was injured, the flooring distributor suffered immeasurable losses in terms of inventory and equipment. To commemorate the date, the City Floor Team put together a video log as a way to convey what they have been through this past year and to once again thank everyone — vendors, customers, employees, friends and family – for helping them get through the trials and tribulations this past year.

According to Mike Glavin, owner and founder of CFS, “Taking the time to reflect on this dynamic year of change, from the shock and sadness to the rebuild and expansion, really allowed us to see how far we’ve come and how much we’ve learned.”

The company began the rebuilding process almost immediately. While the building was still burning, management deployed a team to set up a temporary headquarters where they immediately began to execute their disaster recovery plan. Within days the distributor secured a temporary warehouse and resumed local and national delivery service. Online ordering resumed shortly thereafter.

In November 2015, after an extensive site search, the distributor secured a new warehouse and distribution center in King of Prussia, Pennsylvania – just 2 miles from their previous location. A rebrand soon followed. The rebrand effort involved a name change (Philadelphia Floor Store to City Floor Supply), new logo, and new website. The company took occupancy of their new building in late December 2015 and went to work on an extensive building renovation project. Counter service for hardwood floor contractors resumed in March 2016. The Machine Repair Shop is under construction and is set to open in a few short weeks. The final piece – the office and designer showroom is scheduled for completion in July 2015.

Glavin continued, “From day one we vowed to rise like a phoenix, and come back bigger, better and stronger than before and we’ve accomplished that task and then some! There are countless lessons we’ve learned along the way. From planning for the unexpected to understanding the importance of organization and commitment. We have become much stronger and smarter through this ordeal. We are most grateful to the people who offered their support, we would not be here today without their help.”
