A new family-owned business has opened on 23rd Street.
The Richmond Vacuum and Sewing Center at 1152 23rd St., north of Rheem Avenue, offers new and used vacuum cleaners, bags, carpet cleaning supplies, used sewing machines, repairs, and basic sewing supplies such as needles and thread.
They have been open at the location for only a few weeks, but owner Wilson Soch has been in the industry for 14 years and prides himself as being a trained service technician.
He hopes his business can be a resource for the local community.
“It’s my profession,” he said, adding that he values the Richmond community as it supports local small businesses. “All are welcome to visit us anytime.”
