About Yates Flooring Center

Get to know your Lubbock, Midland, or Amarillo area flooring experts
Yates Flooring Center is a family owned business founded in 1976 under the leadership of Bobby and Becky Yates. The business has grown to become one of the largest flooring stores in America located at one address, yet it remains a family business that serves the West Texas/Eastern New Mexico area. Yates Flooring Center is a large volume purchaser which allows us to provide the very best products at the most aggressive pricing available in the marketplace.

We are a full service provider that can offer products in the latest designer styles for homes, multi-family properties and businesses. No project is too large or too small for our residential or commercial departments.

Yates Flooring Center has made the commitment to maintain a high in-store inventory in order to have products available for immediate purchase. If you need timely installation service, our team of skilled professionals is ready to help. We invite you to visit our showroom where our friendly staff members are waiting to assist you with the selection process.

In the community

Bobby and Becky Yates are lifetime residents of Lubbock and feel very strongly about supporting this community and area. We have been involved in the Komen Foundation, Women’s Protective Services, Homes for the Troops, Dream Center, Texas Tech Scholarship Fund, The Children’s Home, Children’s Miracle Network, Our Father’s House, area public schools and many other programs that need the support of the community. Through our work with the Santa Cops program, we made sure that 40 children have bicycles to ride and other presents that they would not have had otherwise.

We do not mention our involvement in these worthy causes for reasons of pride. We simply want to give back to the community that has supported us throughout the years. Yates is a local company with many employees that shop and spend their earnings locally. Keeping our resources circulating in the local economy is important to the ownership of Yates Flooring Center.
