Our Business History
Grand Valley Tile & Carpet is a family business that was started by Bruce Goetz and Harold Hunt in 1959 in Kitchener, Ontario. The store’s main customers were local people from the German-based community of Kitchener. The success of the company encouraged the partners to open a satellite store in Hanover, Ontario in 1969. This store served the people of the rural community of Hanover, Mildmay, and Mount Forest.
Years later, Bruce and Harold sold the Hanover location and focused their efforts on the growing Kitchener-Waterloo area. Harold dealt primarily with customers that were building new homes or renovating their existing residence. Bruce dealt with commercial projects like restaurants, schools, apartment & office complexes.
In 2001, after Harold retired, Mark Goetz bought the business from his father, Bruce, and continues to service the Kitchener & Waterloo Region with pride and integrity. As an added bonus, Mark’s two sons are working in the business and have been an integral addition to the team.
At Grand Valley Tile, we pride ourselves on our ability to retain long-term relationships with our suppliers, customers, and employees. This means that we have access to multiple generations of skill and experience that will all contribute to informing you about products and helping you be successful in your flooring project.
We have a large Showroom and Warehouse facility at our location on 70 Alpine Court in Kitchener and have been here since 1980. You’ll find that we offer the latest trends in new and exciting broadloom carpet, vinyl, wood, laminates, marble, granite, and ceramic tile products.
