Correction In Carruso's Floors Story

— Here is a corrected version of the Carruso's Floors story that appeared in last week's issue of How's Business.
Phil Carruso moved to Washington state in the 1930's and opened Spokane's first specialty flooring shop. The Linoleum Shop opened its doors on North Monroe in what had been his father's grocery store. Eighty years later, the Caruso family's flooring store continues to thrive in Spokane, providing full lines of flooring products with knowledgeable and friendly sales staff. Owned and operated by Phil's son Bill and grandson Mark, the Caruso's have continued to adapt and expand the business.

It is in this spirit that the Caruso's have decided to change the long standing name of the company from The Linoleum Shop to Caruso's Floors. As Mark put it, "We are grateful for the history and longevity of this business. However, with all the products available today, we feel the word linoleum doesn't reflect the scope of products we sell." Bill added that, "We've survived and thrived in the Spokane economy because we have learned to make the right changes at the right time, and now is the time for Caruso's Floors."

Along the way, then, they changed the spelling of their last name?
