KMOX Radio reports that Becky's Carpet and Tile is shutting down all six stores. About 30 employees will lose their jobs. Some customer orders won't be filled. Owner Becky Rothman sent hand-written letters to those who have paid but not yet received their product, stating they will get refunds.
TV ads for years have featured Rothman on a magic carpet above the Gateway Arch, calling herself Becky the queen of carpet.
