Our founder, Frank Sterling Little, was born in Bonavista Newfoundland in 1928. At 16, he left home to find work in Niagara Falls, Canada. In Niagara, Frank meet Margie his wife and soon started a family. In 1962, tried of the cold weather Frank and Margie along with their son Dennis decided to move to Southern California.
Setting in Anaheim California was an exciting and challenging. Frank and Margie established themselves in the community, fairly quickly. They loved Southern California and knew that this was defiantly the place for them and a great place to raise their children Dennis and Linda. Frank and Margie started working in the property management business and soon were running their own carpet cleaning business. Their honest, sincere, and hard working approach propelled their person and business relationships. Their roots in the community are strong, having relationships that have lasted over 45 years.
Over the next 15 years, Frank rapidly expanded his knowledge and experiences in the carpet business from the meager beginnings as a carpet cleaner, carpet repairman and one room carpet installer. From 1965 until his retirement in 1981, he owned one of the largest carpet stores in Orange County, contracting 15 carpet crews a day from San Diego to Ventura.
In 1984, at the urging of his son Dennis, Frank came out of retirement and opened Carpets-4-U, Inc., with his wife, Margie and children, Dennis and Linda. Located at 4304 E. La Palma Avenue in Anaheim Hills. The new Business approach was modeled after Frank ‘s successful philosophy; retailing high quality carpets at wholesale prices for residential use, and purchasing seconds and roll specials for below wholesale prices for stock. For over 25 years now the family has worked together in the same location. They have raised their families here and have a well known name in the community. As most of Carpets-4-U’s customer are repeats and referrals, most customers can find something in common with the family.
Plenty has changed over the past 25 years, but the company’s mantra has remained intact. Now working at Carpet-4-U, is Dennis and his wife Mary, Linda and her husband Gary and Margie is still running the show. Frank has retired but does come around periodical to reiterate his thoughts,” Enjoy your job, enjoy the people you work with, enjoy your customers, and have your customers enjoy their experience with you.”

The lasting impression a customer will remember about a contractor is likely the last person they deal with. More often than not, this will be an installer. A customer can feel confident in their purchase, trust their sales person, and expect their business transaction to be successful. However, an installer can shatter that image in minutes simply by being late to the job, having a messy and unkempt appearance, or operating a disorganized work-site. Often, these issues make it very difficult for customers to regain confidence in their contractor.
Therefore, our experienced flooring installers and other craftsmen are highly motivated and skilled in their profession. They take great pride in their appearance, customer relations, job-site safety, and most importantly, their workmanship. They are our best representatives, and we are very proud of them!
