About Kennedy’s Tile Inc.:

When Joseph R. Kennedy returned home from World War II, his mother encouraged him to open a floor-covering specialty store. At the time, limited inventories of tile and linoleum were sold exclusively at furniture and department stores like Guggenheimers, where Joe’s mother Agnes Rosenberger Kennedy worked. The two agreed that there was an opportunity to compete by offering customers a greater selection and better service at an affordable price.
