‘Customers are the best people you could meet!’

Twenty questions the People asked Gabriel Lynch as Lynch Flooring in Roscommon celebrates its first year in business!  Name: Gabriel Lynch.  Your family details: My partner Ann Marie and I have a beautiful daughter, Ella.  Your business: Lynch Flooring.  Where to find you? Golf Links Road, Roscommon.   What do you provide? We provide a wide range of carpets, timber flooring and vinyls.   Career to date? I previously worked with McNultys Furniture, Lighting & Flooring before opening my own business last year.  Size of property? About 6,000 sq. feet.  How has your first year in business been?

But I must say the public response has been very good. The economic downturn has not affected us, yet anyway. We do a lot of contract work and that’s been very positive for us. We do nursing homes, schools, businesses, etc. Just recently we were involved on the Abbeyfield Hotel project in Ballaghaderreen for instance.  What does the customer want in 2008? Customers are the best people you could meet! I believe they want to come into a clean, tidy premises and be met by nice, friendly staff. They want the job done properly – and on time. That is not a major ‘ask’ these days and we do our best to meet those needs. So far so good!  Carpet v wooden floors? It’s quite evenly divided between the two
