Flooring Brand to Donate a Portion of Buyers' Savings Through Nov. 18

Burlington, USA, 11/04/2013 / SubmitMyPR /

For homeowners looking to spruce up their flooring in time for the holidays, Shaw Floors is offering a chance to save money on its products while supporting an important cause. Buyers can visit shawfloors.com/stjude2013coupon to print out a coupon worth up to $500 at participating Shaw flooring retailers through Nov. 18. Meanwhile, Shaw Floors will donate 10 percent of each coupon's face value to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, a world-class pediatric treatment and research facility in Memphis, Tenn., focused on cancer and other catastrophic diseases.

The Shaw Floors "You Save, We Give" coupon grants customers a $100 discount when they buy 50 square yards of a qualifying Shaw carpet, 500 square feet of a qualifying Shaw hard surface or spend a minimum of $599 on a qualifying Shaw area rug. Buyers of 100 square yards of carpet, 1,000 square feet of a hard surface or an area rug costing at least $999 will save $300. To receive the maximum $500 discount, Shaw customers must purchase 200 square yards of carpet, 2,000 square feet of hard surface or an area rug priced at $1,699 or greater.

"Shaw Floors recognizes that there are much more important things in life than your carpets, and its 'You Save, We Give' promotion allows buyers to make a purchase that has an impact on countless children with life-saving research," said Barry Greenberg, sales manager of A.J. Rose Carpets & Flooring, a Greater Boston carpet dealer. "We're proud to offer our customers those savings so that they can outfit their homes with high-quality flooring in time for the holiday season while getting into the giving mood early."

Even those who aren't planning a flooring upgrade in the near future can still support St. Jude Children's Research Hospital with Shaw Floors. The brand has posted several ABCs of Cancer drawings from pediatric-cancer patients at https://apps.facebook.com/shawstjude/, and it will donate $1 to the hospital each time someone shares a drawing on Facebook, with a maximum contribution of $20,000 through Nov. 18.

Shaw Floors is giving its customers yet another reason to feel good about their purchase, as the manufacturer is currently completing the installation of solar panels on the roof of its Cartersville, Ga., carpet tile plant. Generating about 1.4 million kilowatt hours each year, the solar-panel installation will create enough energy to power roughly 100 homes, and it will help supply electricity to the plant by connecting to the Georgia Power electric grid.

"With the brand's broad range of sustainable manufacturing practices, Shaw products are as environmentally friendly as they are kid or pet friendly," added Greenberg. "Whether it's the use of solar panels or recycled materials during production, Shaw Floors manages to ship products that are not only built to last, but also built to protect our planet."
