• Roy Putra is the new store manager at Stone Mountain Flooring Outlet of Auburn.

He was the sales manager at the sister store in Tacoma for 18 months prior to his promotion.

“I love the fast pace of this business,” Putra said. “When I was the sales manager at the Tacoma store, I had a full sales staff and warehouse personnel reporting to me, and things were always hopping.”

Mike Paulson, president of Stone Mountain Flooring Outlets in Auburn, added: “Roy was looking around our Tacoma store a year and a half ago. We found out that he had just sold his own floor covering business that he had for 12 years in Phoenix, Arizona. My partner and I thought Roy would be the perfect fit in our organization, and we were right.”

Putra’s new responsibilities at the Auburn store include store management with sales staff reporting to him, marketing, sales, managing independent installers, and overall customer satisfaction for the store.

Located at 1604 15th Street Southwest, Suite 104, Auburn, WA 98001, Stone Mountain Flooring Outlet provides a full-service experience to its clients with a vast selection of flooring products and professional installation. Serving the Puget Sound area since 1921, the Paulson family operates several floor covering stores, including the Stone Mountain Flooring Outlet chain.

Stone Mountain Flooring Outlet of Auburn can be reached at 253-394-5000. Hours are Monday-Friday from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m., Saturday from 9 to 5, and Sunday from 11 to 5.
