10 days ago Tom Swanson opened his doors after having them forcefully closed on 6/11 when a 5 Alarm Fire raged in the building housing his business on Wells Street this year. 2 months and a silent auction fund raiser organized by his wife later, Tom is just "trying to get the ball rolling again."
The business originally was comprised of Tom and his brother, Bud with Tom handling the keys and locks end of the business and Bud specializing in vacuum repair and maintenance, of which he has 28 years of experience. When the fire occurred, Bud thought to just retire. Now Bud will help out with any repair work that comes through the door and make sure to keep up on the warranties that were issued through the shop back when it was around the corner.
The location on South Third Street is a nice and central location, definitely helping fill out our blossoming downtown business sector. Open everyday except Sunday from 10 am to 6 pm, if you were a longtime client of Tom's or just in need of his services, now is the time to drop and say "Welcome Back."
