The Amesbury Chamber of Commerce celebrated the opening of the new Gordon Rug Company store, with a ribbon cutting ceremony attended by Amesbury Mayor Ken Gray, and Chamber president Paul Gagliardi.

The new store sells rugs and carpets and offers on-the-spot custom binding and installation services. Owner Jeff Gordon has worked in the carpet industry for 17 years, and works with several local designers and stores throughout Massachusetts, Maine, and New Hampshire. Custom binding is achieved thanks to a large in-store air table that can easily lift a 350-pound carpet.
