Shopping with Job Youshaei Rug Company, Inc. is easy.  You can look at our rugs and then immediately order on-line, or you can call our store for information and support before you buy. 

The core of our philosophy for determining the value of a rug is defined by 5 factors that we strongly suggest you consider when evaluating a rug for purchase:

1.    Beauty
2.    Workmanship
3.    Material Quality 
4.    Condition
5.    Size

We set the prices for our rugs based on these 5 factors, taking into account fair market values.  Once our prices have been set, they rarely change, which means that we pass along the best values to our customers regardless of inflation. 

We hope that you enjoy your visit to our website.  We invite you to consult the site whenever you have questions about rugs.  If the answer you seek is not already contained in one of our pages, send us an e-mail through the site, and we’ll find you the answer.  And while we are not able to issue appraisals on-line, if you send us a picture of your rug, we may be able to tell you something about it that you didn’t know.
