Ian McCloskey points out the features on three styles of vacuums available in the new store.

Great Lakes Vacuum has opened in the Promenade Shops at 5577 Monroe St. “Two years ago, Jay Hahl opened Great Lakes Vacuum in Maumee, which has been very successful. He saw a need for a second store in the Sylvania/West Toledo area,” noted Paul Greene, manager of the Sylvania store.
“This space had recently become available and was exactly what we had been looking for,” Greene added. “This is a great location in a busy shopping center with our end cap facing Monroe Street.”
The new store features a variety of vacuum cleaners, including the American-made Oreck, Riccar and Simplicity along with Vacuflow, made in Canton, Ohio, and German-made Miele and Sebo to name a few. “We offer higher quality products at competitive prices,” Greene pointed out. “We like to think that we solve problems and have vacuums that meet the needs of our customers.”
According to Greene, some brands are more focused on the needs of pet owners, whose concerns are centered on pet hair, dander and other issues. Other vacuums would be recommended for those who suffer from asthma or other breathing difficulties and select brands are more appropriate for those budget-minded customers.
In addition to upright and canister vacuum cleaner models and detailing tools, a line of hard surface appliances, including scrubbers, polishers and buffers are also available. Included in the selection are cordless models of both vacuum cleaners and hard surface appliances.
A large selection of accessories, including a variety of bags to capture debris along with sweeper bags for older models, are available for sale, as well.
As a warranted center, Great Lakes Vacuum technicians offer service on all the machines sold and also on any vacuums made.
“A vacuum cleaner is the only appliance that can do multiple things,” Greene noted. “Today’s vacuum plays a key role in maintaining good indoor air quality.”
The new store is open from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Monday and Thursday; from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday; and from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. on Saturday.
