U.S. Forgoes Plan to Raise Tariffs

From Floor Daily

Washington, DC October 12, 2019-In an initial step to reach a longer term trade agreement, the U.S. has delayed plans to increase tariffs on the $250 billion in annual imports that includes flooring products. 

The Trump administration will delay raising tariffs from 25% to 30%; the increase, originally slated for October 15, has been pushed back indefinitely. In exchange, China agreed to increase purchases of U.S. agricultural products. 

The news was announced following two days of trade talks in DC last week.

Dancing Stars of Dalton

Dalton_DS_logoRecently, Carpet Express sponsored the Dancing Stars of Dalton, which was an event held by the Alzheimer’s Association. They were one of many sponsors, who helped with such a great cause.
Dancing Stars of Dalton, which is a reinvention on the popular show “Dancing with the Stars,” was held at the North West GA Trade and Convention Center. Nine local celebrity dancers were paired with professional dancers, and the pairs raised funds for the Alzheimer’s Association by gaining votes. The dancing competition was a fun night, but the most important part was all of the funds raised will go to helping with Alzheimer’s care, support, and research.
We are proud to have sponsored such a wonderful event and a great cause!
