Established in 1948, Central Vacuum Stores originally opened its doors to service the St. Petersburg, Florida community offering both vacuum sales and repairs. Founded by Chris Ambrose, the business grew to include his son, Roger, and an additional five storefronts.
As the retail world began to change, Roger decided to diversify and began installing and maintaining central vacuum and intercom systems in the Tampa Bay area. But by the mid 1990’s, Roger and his wife Renee noticed yet another shift in the market: the online shopper and “do-it-yourselfer.”
In 2000, CentralVacuumStores.com was born and the wheels were set in motion for a shift from storefront vacuum sales to online retailer. Still family owned and operated today, Central Vacuum Stores employs over thirty team members including grandchildren and great-grandchildren of Christopher Ambrose.
Central Vacuum Stores focuses on informing, assisting, and providing quality products to customers and has established a reputation for unmatched knowledge in the vacuum industry. Offering over 35,000 products and a 20,000 square foot warehouse, Central Vacuum Stores is ready to deliver exceptional customer service as well as the merchandise you need!
