I would say just about every store that sells home decor has a rug section. And I definitely have found some great finds while out and about shopping.

Tips When Rug Shopping
I have learned a lot of lessons when buying new rugs. Here are the most important ones I’ve learned over the years:
- Know the size, pile and style you are looking for before shopping.
- Sign up for the stores email and they will most likely send you a coupon code for your next purchase.
- Wait for big holiday site-wide sales such as Presidents Day, Memorial Day, and Labor Day.
- Shop around! Most sites carry the exact same rugs for different prices! You would be shocked at how much cheaper you can find the rug you want on a different site!
