With the new year looming, Anthony’s World of Floors will celebrate 50 years of providing service in Port Washington.
The company was established in 1972 by Anthony Garofalo and his family. Nicole Garofalo is the third owner of the business and she couldn’t be any prouder.
“The store means a lot to me and the family. Every member of our family has worked here at some point because of what it means to us,” Garofalo said. “The ability to work together with my family is one of the best parts about this celebration.”
The company and family pride themselves on being active in the community. The “Make a Child Smile Toy Drive” is hosted by the Port Washington Chamber of Commerce and many businesses in the town take part.
Anthony’s World of Floors holds a raffle in which it encourages people to bring in new toys for the drive and be given a chance to win $500 toward any purchase at the store. The toy drive is under way and is available to enter until Dec. 15.
“We try to do a lot for the community, especially during holidays, because it’s just what we believe in, giving back to the community,” Garofola said. “It’s an honor being able to raise our families in the same community. It’s what has made this experience so special.”
