Value Center Market is just one of the ever-growing list of retail food stores around the country deciding to replace the traditional high-maintenance vinyl tile floors with the FGS PermaShine Polished Concrete Floor System.

"I've had stores with vinyl tile in the past. To keep them looking sharp was a maintenance nightmare," said Value Center Market owner Ron Farida. "I can really appreciate the fact that this no-wax FGS PermaShine floor is such low maintenance. All we do is dry-dust during the day and wet scrub the floor every night with a walk-behind scrubber. With a little effort the floor looks, and stays looking, absolutely great!"

Value Center Market decided to add visual appeal to their new FGS PermaShine floor by having the contractor add a colored, shake-on hardener in certain areas to provide a visual separation for shopper traffic. Farida also had the installer cut decorative control joints at 48" angled intervals and had them filled and trimmed with a color coordinated joint and crack filler. Farida said, "I just love my new floor... everything is perfect! I'm also planning to do the FGS PermaShine floor to another store this year and yet another store in 2007."

At the date of this Concrete News printing, Surface Dimensions of Michigan has recently completed another Value Center Market FGS PermaShine application in the Detroit, Michigan area.
