 I would to share my current e-mails regarding Empire Today, both there Corporate and local stores wll not respond, and noe Paul Cotter is trying to turn it all on me.

Empire Today must spend MILLONS on advertizing,they are on local and cable. Very difficult to get media support, any ideas? I need help.


Dear Ms. Stocker,

Thank you for your interest in Empire Today.

Mr Cotter,
Please break down pricing for each item you have listed as I requested yesterday. Please send copy of General Release you want me to sign as you said you would 08/20/2013. Please tell me where the product installed in my house was manufactured. I like the color of the molding and I never sent installers away on 08/20/2013, you refused to send them REMEMBER?

Ms. Stocker,


Per your request all of the services below are part of the $6,900 contract you signed with Empire Today. The field area we installed was approximately 860 square feet. This required the following product/services.


43 cartons of Easy Living Laminate

Underlayment for the 860 square feet

Removal of existing flooring

Haul away of existing flooring

Furniture and Appliance Moving

Transitions and shoe moldings

Removing and resetting toilet as needed by licensed plumber



Empire is agreeing to give Ms. Stocker a $1,000 Good Will Allowance upon receipt of a signed General Release.


Empire has been out to service her installation but due to Ms. Stocker’s concerns over pricing she had sent them away.

Empire will replace the boards which have damage that has occurred since the installation. Empire will remove the boards as needed in these areas and replace them. Empire will also fill two areas where a local dip creates a soft feeling in the floor, and reinstall the flooring and moldings.

In reviewing the pictures from the finished job I see that Ms. Stocker has coordinating shoe molding with white baseboard. If she would like white shoe molding (which comes either in a finished brilliant white unpaintable version or a primer white paintable version) it might give the job a more appealing transition from the white baseboard to the flooring. Empire would be happy to change these shoe moldings at no charge if she would like.

The home has significant height variations from one side of the home to the other due to the base floor, floor joists and floor jacks under these joists. Empire cannot change these issues.


If I can be of further assistance please do not hesitate to contact me at 877-588-5218 ext. 3563.

General Manager, Detroit
