Hi, I am Larry Lyday, owner of One Stop Flooring America, Inc. in Mt. Vernon, Illinois. I look forward to the opportunity to personally meet you and show you our 5,000 square foot showroom that is sure to get you in the decorating mood. It has been a pleasure to serve the people in Southern Illinois since 1986. Living in a small community gives me a chance to become involved in the growth of this area. I have served on the Habitat for Humanity Board and enjoyed helping area residents obtain their first home. I love sports and besides writing an area sports column for 3 years, I have served on the JCSA Youth Board, coached baseball, and love going to Mt. Vernon Rams football and basketball games. I serve on the Jefferson County Chamber of Commerce small business council and believe in supporting our local merchants and programs as much as possible. I was honored to be selected Small Business Person of the Year in 2015. My wife, Karen, and I are celebrating more than 40 years of marriage in July. We have one son, Eric and a daughter-in-law, Adrienne. I am "poppy" to two beautiful grandchildren, Blakely and Beau. 

Our continued commitment to providing quality flooring, competitive pricing and lifetime guarantees on installations has motivated us to receive the "Best Flooring Store" award 10 years running in the Mt. Vernon Register-News reader survey.

When I am asked what has been the most rewarding thing I have noticed over my career, it has to be the privilege to get to work on customer's homes more than once! Statistics show that people change flooring on average from 8 to 12 years. We are now redoing clients' homes for the second and third time and their children and grandchildren and that is the ultimate compliment a business should strive to obtain.
