Carpeteria Genie

Field review by the editors.

Reno, Nevada

The Reno Carpeteria franchise opened in 1980, two decades after the discount flooring retailer's first store in California rolled out the welcome mat. The two-faced fiberglass genie on Reno's sign is a younger version of the signature Carpeteria Genie signs found at the corporation-owned stores. The genie is smaller, the grin less impish. Other Carpeterias went out of business, but this is one that has survived.
