Our Family's Story
The First Generation
Dad started in the vacuum business in the 1960’s he opened Clark Vacuum in 1971. Back when vacuums were only sold in vacuum stores. All of his children worked for him at one time or another. His father even worked with him for a while. Dad retired in the early 1990s. When Dad retired, he owned two stores that were taken over by his children.
My childhood was filled with visits to various vacuum stores with my dad. The old Clark Vacuum location (Raritan Road) use to have a basement that my siblings and I would play in. In 1982, I was in the 9th grade and got my working papers. I started working in the store part-time after school and on Saturdays. I took over Clark Vacuum over in 2002.I have been working in the vacuum business for 40+ years.
The Next Generation
My kids started visiting me at Clark Vacuum shortly after they were born.
