We have heard that Quality Tile is THE place to purchase tile at a steep discount. It's not only cheaper than the boutiques on 5th Avenue, but it's also cheaper than Home Depot...
Quality Tile sells ceramic, marble tile and granite, so if you're looking to cut costs on your kitchen or bathroom remodel, they're a good place to start. They stock many name brands, and if they don't have it, they say they'll get it for you. They'll also quote prices on the phone as long as you know exactly what you want, preferably with manufacturer's name and item number, but it's also worth the trip up there to see what you can find. Be aware that the the store is a bit disorganized and overwhelming, and gets VERY crowded on the weekend, but if you have patience and stamina, you can find a great deal.
One AT reader said: Great recommendation! I made the trip up from Manhattan yesterday. They seemed understaffed and slightly disorganized, but the people I talked to were friendly, helpful and willing to negotiate on price. They even offer free delivery if the order is big enough.
