Our History

Kevin and Kathy Johnson came to Columbus in 1978 to manage what was then an expansion of a chain of carpet stores – Mr. Wize Buys Carpet Shop. In 1980, the Johnsons purchased the rights to the Columbus store and incorporated the business in 1983. The following year, they bought the building along with the warehouse in back.

Wize Buys joined Abbey Carpet, a buying group, in 1995 and continues to operate out of the same 2307 13th Street location.

Today, Wize Buys has grown into the largest floor covering store in the Columbus area and your one-stop floor covering showroom.
