Color Tile Outlet Partners with Big Bob's

Chattanooga, TN, October 16, 2006--Alliance Flooring, Inc. announces its partnership with Big Bob’s Flooring Outlet, a franchise chain of approximately 40 locations throughout the U.S., as one of the first Color Tile Outlet licensees. Big Bob’s Flooring Outlet opened its doors in 1983 as Big Bob’s Used Carpet. Then, in 2003, the popular group changed its name to Big Bob’s Flooring Outlet, and since then has effectively evolved into a well-organized, large box outlet store featuring primarily cash and carry, discounted carpet. The partnership with Color Tile Outlet will bring a broad expansion of their cash and carry specials into hard surface offerings, backed by a strong list of core suppliers and the most recognized retail name in the flooring industry. “We are thrilled to announce that Big Bob’s Flooring Outlet is incorporating Color Tile Outlet as a store within a store to provide brand name hard surface products at discounted prices. Big Bob’s members are among the largest and most experienced retailers in the flooring industry. The Big Bob’s name has long been established as a recognized and respected cash and carry brand. Their stores are clean and orderly and they have hard-hitting advertising that drives traffic,” stated Ron Dunn, CO-President and CEO of Alliance Flooring. Big Bob’s integration with Color Tile Outlet is scheduled for early winter 2006. Both Big Bob’s and Alliance Flooring are very excited about this partnership and what it will mean in terms of overall revenue opportunities for members. David Elyachar, President of Big Bob’s Flooring Outlet, states, “Even though synergism was much over used in the 90's, this relationship will certainly be synergistic. Where we are the weakest, Color Tile Outlet will bring about our strengths”. Jon Logue, Co-President and CEO of Alliance Flooring added, “This is an ideal match. With Color Tile being the most recognized retail brand coast to coast, and Big Bob’s reputation in the cash and carry business, we are expecting a long and prosperous partnership. We have put together a very aggressive program that is ideally suited for discount stores based on the tremendous growth our industry has experienced in hard surface coupled with the support of our core suppliers. We look forward to a successful relationship with Big Bob’s and believe there will be numerous mutual benefits as we continue to expand Color Tile Outlet locations.” For more information on Color Tile Outlet licensing opportunities call Ryan Dunn, Vice President of Sales at 800-261-6456 or e-mail to HYPERLINK "" \o "" CarpetsPlus Color Tile, Carpetland Color Tile, Color Tile Outlet and Floorco are divisions of Alliance Flooring, Inc., a retail-licensing group representing more than 450 flooring retail locations across the United States.
