The Ramsey Flooring story began in 1956 when Don Ramsey went to work as an apprentice for Spelman's Carpet in Los Angeles, CA. Don learned professional flooring installation by working alongside the best west coast flooring installers during the day and attending classes in the evening.
After serving several years with the military in Germany, Don returned to Minnesota to go into business for himself. In the early years Don partnered with his father, Melvin Ramsey, in home building. Using Don's skills, they were able to offer their new home clients custom flooring installation as well.
As the word spread about Don's skill as a flooring installer, area stores began to call on him to install carpet for their customers. He soon was the flooring installer for several Detroit Lakes stores and, as well, stores in area towns including Mahnomen, Frazee and Park Rapids in Minnesota..
Don's dad continued to work with him until his retirement. Don also trained his brother Dave Ramsey and they worked together for many years. For several years Don owned the Ramsey Carpet Store on Washington Avenue in Detroit Lakes in part of what is now the downtown mall.
The Vocational Training Center in Fargo, ND hired Don for several years to train their students in his flooring installation methods.
Don’s sons, Steve Ramsey and Brian Ramsey, continue to uphold the family tradition of providing the highest quality flooring and flooring installation across Minnesota, North Dakota, Anchorage-Alaska, and Arizona.
