It was with a heavy heart that Neal and Paul Wright closed their father’s business, The Flying Carpet, in 2018. After the passing of Bill Wright in 2015 and with a continued decline in the profitability of an Oriental Rug store, the decision was made to have a Going Out of Business sale and then close the doors after almost fifty years of operations.
We understand that for a great many people The Flying Carpet was their expected place to go to, both to visit with Bill Wright and to shop for hand-knotted rugs. At this time we have no recommendations for places to replace The Flying Carpet as a rug shop. Neal Wright continues to offer rug cleaning, some repair services, and rug pads through his business, Wood and Wool, which at this time is available by appointment. Please call him with any questions!
There are always some unfinished business when a store closes. If you have any unfinished business with Paul or Neal please send us an email or call the Flying Carpet’s phone number 2567641852.
