About Us

Owners Tonja Summerlin and Nila Johnson would like to let you know a little of our history. Carpet Discount Barn was started in 1968 when our daddy, Frank Buie, began selling rugs from our basement. In about 1970, he purchased the old Dothan Livestock Auction building (hence the name “Barn”) and opened The Discount Barn.  For 6 years we sold rugs, carpet and vinyl flooring out of that old barn. Then in 1976, we had a major setback. A fire completely destroyed our building and everything in it. Thankfully, we had a warehouse in back with some carpet in it, so we continued to sell from our warehouse. We never closed our doors for one day! We conducted business from our warehouse while we built the metal building we continue to use today. In 1981, our name was changed from The Discount Barn to Carpet Discount Barn. We are thankful for God’s blessings over the years and hope to continue to serve the Wiregrass area for many more years to come. Contact us to see how we can help you today!
