Our Story

The story of Jordans Flooring is one focused on a commitment to quality in both product and service. It is this simple yet passionate commitment that began with our business years ago and still guides and sustains us today. Our success, longevity, and reputation are achievements we take pride in. 

Today, Jordans Flooring is known as a retailer that provides a broad range of products and services across the Home Furnishings and Flooring industries. Yet there is one product that characterizes us more than any other and it is what our business was founded upon, the hand-knotted carpet. Our founder, Edwin Jordan-Knox, had a passion for this exotic and enchanting art form. Functional, historical, and artistic, the hand-knotted carpet is a thing of undeniable value and beauty. 

Unraveling the Legacy: A Journey Through Jordans Flooring's Past

Edwin saw an opportunity out West and set upon realizing his vision of bringing the finest works from the Orient and showcasing them in the most beautiful surroundings. This vision was fulfilled with the opening of the first Jordans Rugs store at 2536 Granville Street in the up-and-coming South Granville area of Vancouver in 1929. Although this was not the best of times to start a new business, Edwin and Jordans prospered and began to set the standard for the rug business in Vancouver.

The uncertainty of World War II forced many changes upon the business. The concern that the war would potentially disrupt our ability to import products from the Middle and Far East led Edwin and his two sons, Charles and Trevor, to seriously consider what Jordans would be without a ready supply of hand-knotted carpets. At the time, it was a great risk, but the decision was made to commit to broadloom and set in motion an amazing success where Jordans has now sold more wall-to-wall carpets than anyone else in Canada.

Jordans was, in fact, the first company to bring broadloom into Canada. But it was not until after World War II, alongside the development of the North American broadloom industry, that it became a central part of our business and facilitated new growth and new opportunities. The growth in wall-to-wall carpeting facilitated Jordans' expansion in the post-war period throughout Western Canada from Victoria to Winnipeg. Carpeting also led to Jordans entering the Commercial Flooring business in the early 1970s, and this has contributed greatly to the scope and nature of our company.

Jordans launched a new era with the launch of the new flagship store at 1470 West Broadway in November of 1980. With the vision of the next generation of leadership, David Jordan-Knox, (grandson of the founder), this was to be a store of scope and ambition that had never been seen before in Canada. The size and beauty of the showcase and the first-class merchandise made the statement that Jordans was truly one of Canada's premiere retailers. This original Canada concept of fine furnishings, rugs, and flooring proved itself a success and has since been repeated in Victoria, Coquitlam, and Kelowna.

The company has continued to invest deeper in the Home Decor industry with the Jordans Warehouse Outlet stores that offer our customers the best prices on flooring available with the confidence that comes with purchasing from Jordans.
