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



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.

Stan Hywet Hall and Gardens has worked with Callahan's for years to install commercial grade carpet in our buildings. This past winter, as part of a $1M restoration of the Manor House, the curatorial staff pursued the idea of replacing the service carpet on the main stairs and second floor hallways with a patterned runner that would replicate the original 1915 design but have the durability of a more commercial grade carpet. We are thrilled with the results. Larry and his team worked with us through the whole process from finding the right vendor to installation. Everyone was professional and courteous. We felt like Callahan's took genuine ownership of the project. Their attention to detail was superb.
