Al and Hope Bauman are the owners. Al graduated from Kiester High School and took business classes at Mankato University in Mankato, MN. for 2 years. Later he attended Riverland College in Austin, MN. and became certified as a floorcovering installer. Hope (Diaz) Bauman graduated from Bricelyn High school and then attended Lowthian College in Minneapolis and studied interior design. Al and Hope Bauman purchased the business in 1986 from Betty Halverson. It was named Mi-Tee Discount at that time. They decided to change the name and the rest is history! They are as excited today as they were then about helping you with all of the wonderful choices that are available in floor coverings .
