Local vacuum shop is excellent

On Broadway in Everett there is a small shop (Everett Vacuum Sales and Service) that has been there for at least 25 years. I know because they serviced my mom’s old Hoover when I first relocated here. It is a clean place and the guy there knows all there is to know about vacuums and then some. He has all kinds of parts as well as new vacuums.

I am glad to know, that, with the big box stores all around me, that I can support a local business that has competitive prices and excellent service. And more important, someone who knows about the product they service and sell.

Made my day.
