Established in 1982, Mr. Vacuum first opened its doors on Raleigh St. in Martinsburg, WV, by Ted Heverley. Mr. Vacuum’s main focus of business at this point were repairs and reconditioning of used vacuums. With almost 20 years experience in the vacuum industry upon opening Mr. Vacuum, the business quickly built a reputation for fast, honest, and dependable service. With the demand from customers for new merchandise, Mr. Vacuum brought in its first lines of new vacuum cleaners – Panasonic and Hoover.
With a growing customer base, the need to expand was evident. In 1984 Ted closed the doors of the Raleigh St. location and opened the doors at Meadow Lane Plaza on Williamsport Pike. Mr. Vacuum was building a bigger and better reputation in the area by maintaining honesty with our customers and quality in the products sold. Growing customer needs were met with the addition of Eureka and Simplicity vacuums.
In 1991, Mr. Vacuum relocated once again to Old Courthouse Square shopping center. Mr. Vacuum’s largest growth as a business took place here. The business maintained an extremely quick turnover rate for repairs, generally only 24-48 hours for most repairs, and our customers were continuously impressed with the quality of new vacuums we sold. The addition of Oreck and Miele vacuums contributed greatly to our success at this location.
Ten years later, Mr. Vacuum bid farwell to Old Courthouse Square and we made our new and current home on Foxcroft Avenue in the North Mall Plaza. Along with the most recent location change, we also added installation and repair of central vacuum systems to our ever-expanding repertoire. As a celebration of nearly 30 years in business, we maintain our philosophy on the products we sell; to provide our customer with the best quality vacuums from around the world and educate them on the changes in the vacuum industry over the last 30 years.
Today Mr. Vacuum is still growing, and currently under management by Ted’s son, Stephen Heverley, and we do not intend on slowing down any time soon. Mr. Vacuum truly does sell the best quality vacuums from around the world, such as – Oreck and Simplicity (USA), Panasonic and Sanyo (Japan), as well as Miele and Sebo (Germany).
So whatever your Vacuum needs may be, Mr. Vacuum will have you covered.
