Owners of Everett Vacuum

Everett Vacuum Demonstration

Everett Vacuum is located in one of the oldest structures on Broadway in a historic house dating all the way back to 1896. In 1944, Ted Hagen moved both his vacuums and his family into the house, which had been expanded by the previous owner to include a showroom and work area.

Ted had been so successful selling Compact™ brand vacuum cleaners door-to-door that he needed a storefront to sell the trade-ins he was accumulating.

The space needed for storing and repairing the used vacuums continued to grow, and by 1963 (shortly after Ted's son Dan took over the store), the family was forced to make their home elsewhere. By 1998, Dan Hagen was ready to retire, and the most promising person to take over the business was someone who had been working at the shop since he was 14 years old.

Laurie Steinberg and his wife Mary were the third owners in the almost 60 years since Everett Vacuum started. Laurie passed away in September of 2011. He worked the Everett location for nearly 40 years. His son-in-law David Lane and his father Mike now own and run the store, and they are dedicated to continuing the same level of care and service that Laurie gave to the community.
