Bob Duke

Owner

Bob was born in Melrose Massachusetts and soon afterward the Duke family moved to Rockport Maine. Bob and his two brothers attended local schools and very much enjoyed living in a small town. Bob spent countless hours with friends on and around Rockport Harbor. As he was finishing high school and working full-time at the Camden IGA Foodliner Bob found himself at a crossroad; whether to go to college or possibly make a career in the grocery business. Trusting his gut, Bob staying in the business he already enjoyed and stayed there for fifteen years, working his way up to managing two grocery stores in Rockland and Camden.

Feeling the need to move on Bob moved to a new position as Multi-Store Supervisor for Maritime Energy/Maritime Farms Store. After a few years, Bob was promoted to Operations Manager, assuming the Senior Management Position overseeing the stores, retail, and wholesale fuel operations. In 2005 Bob and his wife Doreen purchased Floor Magic from Ralph and Susan Pilsbury, which at that time had just the Damariscotta Showroom. In 2007 Bob added a showroom in Rockport and in 2008 purchased the Damariscotta location and built a warehouse for both operations.

Personally Bob married Doreen Hall soon after high school and have raised two children; Jonathan (who is married to Joanna and has two boys; Carter and Will) and Gabrielle. Bob and Doreen are excited recently as they are building a new home, still in Rockport. Recreationally Bob enjoys golf, boating, home improvement projects, and serving the public in many roles over the last thirty years. Fireman, Town Budget Committeeperson, Town Selectperson, Town Moderator, County Budget Committeeperson, County Commissioner, and School Board Person are just some of the positions held.

Philosophically, Bob believes to work hard every day, treat everyone he has contact with well and their day a little bit better. Bob loves owning Floor Magic and working directly with as many client as he can in improving their homes.
