Giving Back To The Community

Arthur Lee Cherry, founder of Cherry Rug Inc. (later Cherry Carpet Inc. and currently Cherry Carpet & Flooring) lived and worked by the philosophy that you give back to your community through personal involvement and philanthropic endeavors and saw that as his true measure of success. He instilled this in his son, Brad L. Cherry (former President), and grandson, B. Ross Cherry (current President). Both have carried this legacy forward in their personal lives and the family business. Cherry Carpet & Flooring is proud to “pay it forward” with our partners shown below and many other entities in the community. You can feel proud that when you put your trust in Cherry Carpet & Flooring, you are helping us build our community here in Hampton Roads.
