Sherlock’s Carpet & Tile was founded in 1975 by Joe Sherlock. Originally named Medallion Carpets, the company sold mostly carpet and vinyl floors. In 1980, the company moved to its present location and soon became Sherlock’s Carpet Warehouse.
Specializing in great values and “stocking rolls” of carpet and vinyl, Sherlock’s prospered from the Orland and Tinley building boom throughout the 80’s. At the end of the 80’s and beginning of the 90’s, Sherlock’s entered into ceramic tile, wood flooring and laminate flooring, just in time for the hard surface boom.
Carrying on tradition of honesty and customer service, in 1993 Joe’s son, Marty Sherlock, became president. Soon after, Sherlock’s Carpet Warehouse had a new slogan, “Your Complete Floor Covering Store”.
In 1999 the showroom was extensively remodeled and began featuring Karastan Carpets with a much larger representation of hard surface products. In 2000, Sherlock’s Carpet Warehouse became Sherlock’s Carpet & Tile.
