About Us

What began in the 1930's as a hardware store on Flint's north end, has become one of the most trusted name in flooring throughout mid-Michigan.


Fogelsonger's Wallpaper and Paint Company became a household name in the early 1940's when Joseph Fogelsonger's two sons, Wallace and Lloyd took over the store. In 1945, Wallace got out of the wallpaper and paint business, and began Fogelsonger's Floorcovering in the adjoining building. Here, he specialized in pre-packaged room-size linoleum, rolls of 12-foot wide linoleum, floor tile and roll countertop material.  In the 1960's he also began offering carpet flooring. As time progressed, Fogelsonger's Floorcovering became a full-service flooring company, offering additional products and services, including installation.

In 1970,  Harold Fogelsonger purchased Fogelsonger's Floorcovering and re-located the store to 4918 Clio Rd. Then in, 2006 the business moved again to our current location of  3489 N. Linden Rd.

A new generation now manages the business. Joe Barbaretta, son of Ruth Fogelsonger, continues the tradition of providing quality and value flooring in Flint and the surrounding communities. His daughter, Tabatha also works in the store. 

For more than three decades the Fogelsonger family has brought the expertise, value and service that only a family-owned business can provide. Trust your next floor to us!
