History


Gilbert’s is a family owned and operated business.  We  have been serving the community since 1979. From 1979 until 1992 our business was a floorcovering installation company, then in 1992 we opened our retail operation. Our store is built on property that was part of the original Gilbert Family Farm (see picture).

As the Big Rapids community grew the farmland was developed and became part of Ferris State University along with many other commercial businesses and the location of Gilbert’s CarpetsPlus COLORTILE
