Vancouver’s BuildDirect to Launch New Chocolate Flooring

BUILDDIRECT - April 1 Alert: BuildDirect takes a bite

Vancouver’s online building materials merchant BuildDirect is about to “take a bite” out of home improvement, with the launch of its new chocolate flooring.

The company’s Chocolate Sensation Handscraped Classic Collection is hand poured and will be available on April 1st in dark, milk chocolate and white. Consumers can even get their hands on the tasty new building supplies, by ordering free samples at http://www.builddirect.com/chocolateflooring.

“We know consumers will be sweet on our new chocolate flooring,” said BuildDirect’s CEO Jeff Booth. “You can literally taste the quality.”

The company said its new chocolate floors are “stylish, warm and come with an intricate, wood patterned surface.” No other flooring on the market is as easy to install, with customers encouraged to break the planks with their fingers. “Our advanced analytical and forecasting tools identified chocolate floors as a new product trend,” said Booth. “And by leveraging technology as our platform, we’re building a simpler and friendlier home improvement industry. Chocolate flooring is just another way to show customers how much we care.”
