I did get a phone measure yesterday from a woman who wants to have a carpet installation. She let me know that she put the same carpet in her condo on Florida, a cheap pattern with a 5 year warranty. She's also selling the condo in Florida, in fact she and her husband are going to be going down for the closing next week. There's a fly in the ointment, though. We're running a special that expires on July 30, and they drive down, and this Friday she's out of town for a business meeting, and they're leaving on Monday. I know that's a lot of "ands," and unfortunately there is one more: and the first measure date available in July 17, when they're in Florida. Measure services has been contacted and they will update her if an earlier date becomes available.
