A St. Louis advertising legend, often laughable, sometimes annoying, but always memorable, Becky the Queen of Carpet has closed all 6 of the Carpet and Tile Superstores.
Is there anyone in the St. Louis metro area who can't bring up a mental image of Becky standing up in the air on a piece of carpet touting her business? For years she stood swaying while dressed in a long ball gown and wearing a crown on her head. Long overweight, Becky underwent some sort of gastrointestinal by-pass surgery to lose the weight a few years ago.
Well suddenly it's over as employees were told they would lose their jobs and the question of whether the money customers paid for unfilled orders will be refunded remains unclear. Seems the economy hit the company hard.
