Do yourself a favor don't believe you are getting a deal with empire carpet, even if it is 50% off, you will be paying for lies and problems, namely; carpet that comes apart from the wall, rips apart from the seams, and disintergrates under foot.
Google: "complaints against empire carpet" you will get plenty of information to read and think about it long and hard before you sign with empire. Empire today's own personal web-site is bogus, think smart, they're not going to tell you the truth there either.
People who have settled with them have to sign a no-disclosure contract so their scam cannot be readily uncovered.
They sub-contract everything, salesmen, installers, carpet manufactures. Be warned. Sorry if you are reading this too late as not to get burned, all you can do then is try and warn others.
