Ros is the driving force of Rustigian Rugs. She took over the business when her father died in 1980. She has brought the business into the 21st century continuing to adapt to the rapidly changing area rug business. The store has a full staff of employees (representing about 110 years of experience at Rustigian’s) with at least two teams of expert installers working out of the two locations at any given time. At Rustigian’s, local and global responsibility is emphasized, and the staff is encouraged to participate in local government and local charities. Rustigian Rugs also uses local professionals and vendors, to the extent possible, and keeps a “shop local” mentality in everything they do.
