History & Meet the Team

RPS Carpet and Flooring Wholesalers is a family owned and operated business located in Baltimore, Maryland. We’ve served our community for over 25 years with beautiful carpet, hardwood flooring, luxury vinyl tile flooring, and commercial flooring solutions. Stop by our flooring showroom and now our most recent addition – our tile and stone showroom — to see our wide array of choices. We aim to provide superior products at competitive prices, give you the best customer service possible, and always have plenty of inventory for our in-stock items.

How are We Different from Other Wholesalers?

Quality Products at Competitive Prices

Flooring doesn’t have to be overpriced or underperforming! We stock high quality flooring products at very reasonable prices to give you the performance you need at the price you want. Many of our flooring products come with additional warranties to ensure that you are satisfied.

Fantastic Customer Service

We are a customer-centered business and strive to make sure that you are completely happy with your residential or commercial flooring. Our knowledgeable showroom staff can help guide you through the selection and buying process and our warehouse staff will quickly gather your order to take home the same day. Not sure how to install your flooring? We also offer residential and commercial flooring installation and removal.

Plenty of In-Stock Flooring and Tile & Stone Choices

Many showrooms place an order for flooring after you make a decision, but we already have hundreds of types and styles of flooring in stock. If you need flooring right away, we can meet your need quickly and professionally. If the flooring you want isn’t in stock or you need more square footage, we can place a special order to get it for you quickly.

Family Owned and Operated

We’re happy to be a family owned and operated business, and we treat all of our customers like they’re part of the family.
