Kemper Carpet and Flooring opens in Stonewall Shops near Lake Manassas
A new, locally owned carpet and flooring store is now located in the Wegmans plaza in Gainesville. Kemper Carpet began in 1972 as a carpet cleaning company that quickly grew to a successful, full service flooring company in Fairfax. Tammy Titus worked for the original owner for 15 years as a flooring consultant, finding her passion in design and working with color.

The business was sold in the late ’90s. It was purchased and sold several times.
Tammy moved to Haymarket and started her own company, Piedmont Flooring & Design and employed three from the original Kemper team. In 2007, after three successful years of business, Tammy purchased Kemper Carpet and its assets. “We loved our original roots and wanted to restore and bring back the Kemper name,” says Tammy.
