Our story

When Carl and Ramona Kimbley first started Kimbley's, they wanted to make shopping for flooring a stress free experience. They believed in honesty, kindness, and care, treating their customers like family. Carl first started his career in floor covering by apprenticing for free through a good friend of his. Carl eagerly learned and used these newfound skills along with his high work ethic to start his own flooring business a year later, in 1968 out of his home garage in Selma, CA. During this time Carl did his best to make his own display boards that he could bring to customers' homes as city regulations would not allow customers to come to his home. Some years after, Carl found his way to leasing a storefront in charming downtown Kingsburg. From there Carl and Ramona have made countless friends and confidants in the community. Ramona started secretarial work for the business and continued working hard side by side with her husband until they both retired in 2013. Today, we at Kimbley's strive to emulate the example these two set.
