How we chose each of our

Wholesale Stories

Arley Tile and Flooring

Explore is only interested in working with a small group of dedicated wholesalers that will be our exclusive suppliers. One of my primary concerns in choosing our wholesalers is their knowledge of our region, which is the reason Arley kept coming up as a leader in the industry and the top choice of potential tile and flooring suppliers.

The Arley story starts in 1935 in Scranton Pennsylvania when a man named Irving Levy opened a paint store. Soon linoleum flooring was a growing trend, and Irving saw the potential of adding a line of linoleum flooring to his offerings, so he took on a partner, Franklin Arndt and “Ar-Ley” wholesale were born.

Soon, the flooring business was far overshadowing their paint business, so Irving and Franklin dropped the paint and began to focus on flooring. With the addition of the second generation of partners, the company grew and expanded to cover most of New York and Pennsylvania. During the 1960s, the home decorator industry emerge and became one of their main sources of income, so Arley shifted focus again and became a strictly wholesale supplier.

Since 1999, Arley has focused solely on hard surface tiles and flooring options, rising to be the number one East Coast wholesaler of Tile, Stone, Glass, and Metal flooring options. Their success is attributed to strong family ties, willingness to promote key leaders from within and adhering to these three principles, which represent my philosophy as well.

With those principles, a long history in our region, and dedication to their business partners, I knew that I could count on Arley to have my customer’s backs. I was ready to sign them up, even before I took a look at their products but was equally impressed by their staggering array of tile and flooring options, with products for sale across all of their brands. The average home improvement center will have fewer than 500 tile samples on hand, to give you an idea of how vast this is.
