What a great resource Menlo Vacuum & Fix-it is to have in our community. A big thanks to Bill and so wonderful that the tradition will continue with George's ownership. In an age where everything is considered disposable and few things repairable they defy that mind set.
So glad it's staying around, a wonderful menlo Park shop! Best of luck to Bill and George.
so glad the shop will continue. Best of luck to all!
That place is such a gem. They've always figured things out (once Bill called out the problem and solution from the back when he had only heard my machine and not even seen it). I"m so glad the shop will remain a Menlo Park tradition. Lucky us...and good luck to them!
I totally agree with all the comments above. Hooray for a gem of a place! Have had several things fixed there over the years and they are still lasting. I hope it will stay here for a long, long time!
My sincere appreciation goes out to this wonderful community for supporting small businesses like Menlo Vacuum; I am so pleased that George will be carrying on the tradition. Best of luck, George!
Just by accident, I stopped in Monday for vacuum bags, not knowing about the change of ownership yet. The store was closed, but they opened up for me anyway. Thanks, guys! I'm happy to keep patronizing a neighborly shop.
