Commissioner McGloin visits Tom's Flooring in Childs

Tom’s Flooring Shop, a flooring design and installation company in Childs, has been in business since the 1990s. In 2023, new ownership took over the business and the Northeastern Pennsylvania Alliance (NEPA) provided a loan through the SBA 504 program to assist the borrowers with the purchase of the real estate. Tom’s Flooring has 3,000 square feet of space including a full showroom displaying the products they offer including tile, hardwood, vinyl and carpet. Fidelity Bank was the partnering lender on the project.

“Understanding small businesses’ highs, lows and struggles in Lackawanna County is very important. It’s paramount to get out and meet as many people and small businesses as possible,” said Lackawanna County Commissioner Matt McGloin.
