Meet the Flooring Experts at Eureka Floor Carpet One!
Mike Jurkovich, Owner
Mike says that Eureka Floor Carpet One’s beginnings date back to the 1920s in Eureka. The store, known as Eureka Hardwood Floors, was purchased by his father, Eli and two partners and changed its name to Eureka Floor Company in 1960. The new owners added carpet and linoleum to the store’s offerings and later opened the store in its current location in 1968. Mike worked summers while in high school and college in several capacities at the store. When Mike’s father retired in 1994, he took over ownership of the store. Mike’s role includes commercial flooring management and window coverings.
