The end of a journey for one company sparks a new beginning for another

(Seguin) -- The owner of a local remodeling company has picked up the baton for the owners of Campbell Floors. Carlos Moreno, of LoneStar Home Solutions, has recently purchased the business giving future customers more than just flooring. LoneStar last month took over the reigns from longtime flooring professionals Pete and Judy Campbell.

Moreno, who has owned and operated LoneStar Homes Solutions for nearly a decade, says the partnership is a win win for both companies and looks forward to integrating and continuing the Campbell legacy. 

"We are LoneStar Home Solutions and this is our flooring and design center but it is the same building, the same Campbell's -- the same type of flooring retail. That's really what we want to focus on  here while still doing our remodels but the names have changed but the same ethics, the hard work, the honesty and the integrity -- those kinds of values are still intact and quite frankly, I wouldn't have sought after this type of company to partner with if they didn't have the same work ethic or the same values that we had. So, that made it easier for us and I think she saw that in us and that's what made her feel a little bit better because she had a lot of questions for us and she wanted to make sure that we were going to be right not only for her employees but for the community of Seguin and man, that's when I knew it was going to be a good thing if I could just answer all of her questions openly and honestly," said Moreno.

Moreno says the timing for the new endeavor couldn't have been more perfect for LoneStar who continues to grow in assisting customers with design build, residential, commercial and outdoor spaces. However, he says you can't celebrate the future without honoring and recognizing the end of an era. 

"We had a building downtown but it was just hard for us to get there. The parking maybe wasn't going to be right and ideal for that kind of location. We needed more of storeroom and warehouse and so, by the grace of the good Lord was able to stop by and visited with Mrs. Campbell and it just so happened that she was ready to kind of move on. They've been a great staple of this community and we just wanted to be a part of something like that. I always felt like this building needed good people in it, a good company, a good business to continue on that type of legacy and so, just working with her was amazing. She's a blessing to us. We have eight of their employees still with us. They are great people. They know how to sell flooring. They know how to install flooring. We know how to remodel and we are just partnering together and we hope that we can be the best flooring company in this area," said Moreno.

As for the Campbell's, Judy tells the Seguin Daily News that she and Pete "had their run" and were "lucky enough to find a young man who already had a successful business" and who wanted to continue to offer the best products and services.

"We thought it was a perfect fit for our building. We encourage all of our past customers to support Carlos. He has promised to honor the warranties for our products and make good on them. We wish him all the luck. It was just time to move on," said Judy.

Judy shared that for health reasons, retirement was not only the next but obvious step for the couple. She says the family owned business this year would have completed 30 years of doing business in Seguin and thanks all the friends, family and contractors, who over those years, have walked alongside them in their journey. 

Moreno says the homework has just begun for the company who plans on better explaining what they can do for customers and encourages folks to stop by and experience the one stop shop experience in home remodel. He says with remodeling design and 3D rendering services, LoneStar Home Solutions is now a full design/build company with showroom and flooring center.

"We have our work cut out for us. We want to get people walking in these doors. We've got a story to tell. We've got a story that says 'hey, Campbell's is maybe no longer operating but people of the same values are operating it. They are selling flooring.' So, we've got a lot of work to do to get that message across to the people of Seguin along with the new message which is 'It's More Than a Design Center.' So, they'll see a lot of flooring in here. You will see countertops, you'll see shower vignettes, vanities (all) to make it more of a homier feel where you can sit here and do work," said Moreno. 

Moreno say expanding the business at the former Campbell Floors location is more than just personal success. He says it's about helping grow Seguin and investing in its future. 
 
"We are so grateful and thankful. This is a dream come true. I mean, I would never have thought that graduating from Seguin High School, leaving, coming back and working here and then leaving a good paying job at Continental to do remodeling would take us here. But as we get older, I'm 41-years-old now, being a part of this community is just something that excites me and us being involved in community events. You know my wife is with the school district. My mom has been with the school district. We were born and raised here and to be able to know that the next chapter of our lives are going to be solidified by having a place like this to call our own means a lot to us and we want to be good stewards of this building and be good stewards for this community so that we can give back to it, help out -- just do what we can to be good citizens for this community of Seguin," said Moreno.

The business is located just across from Seguin High School at 1225 E. College St. The business is open Mondays through Fridays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturdays by appointment. The business can be contacted by calling 830-865-1344 or by visiting www.lonestar-homesolutions.com.
