Garth Bigelow at Bigelow Flooring in Guelph, ON
Garth Bigelow
I have been involved with flooring for over 20 years. First, starting out as a young installer, then transitioned into opening our full-service flooring store with my brother Craig 15 years ago. Our number one goal is to service our customers like no other.

I was born and raised on Prince Edward Island along with my 3 brothers and sister. Our father is in the glass business. From a young age, he emphasized the importance of giving his customers great service. He also talked about the importance of being honest in both business and everyday life. We have a great team at Bigelow Flooring to ensure that you get the right product and care from the time you walk through our door to well beyond the completion of your installation.

We would like to offer you a warm welcome to our Bigelow Flooring Family, and look forward to meeting you and your family.

We all realize that there are many competitors for the same share in any marketplace, floor covering is no different. By using my 30+ years in the flooring industry, and by developing long-lasting relationships with clients, I want to be a part of your home or workplace floor covering project.

By listening and making suggestions based on individual needs, I will make the best recommendations based on the latest materials and installation practices.

To me good customer service is about making sure we go above an beyond for our clients from the moment they enter the store, to the moment the job has been completed. The best part about my position here is the fact that I get to see everyone working in sync to accomplish that goal.

Helping people is something I’ve always enjoyed doing. Bigelow Flooring is an extraordinary place to work as it allows me to do just that.

Having been in various construction and home improvement roles, I get a great sense of fulfilment from helping someone see their vision become reality. Keeping track of all the different bits and pieces of a project is something I find interesting and truly enjoy. Working at Bigelow Flooring has been as enjoyable as it has been rewarding for me. I have felt like family since first joining the team and I feel that very sentiment gets infused into the customer's experience. I believe this sort of energy is palpable to our customers and gives them the peace of mind to trust us with such a lasting impression such as their flooring. Having that confidence to recommend our services to family and friends is a privilege that is not always at one's disposal but it is truly the case here. I hope I grow up to be like Rui.
