About Us

It’s All About You!

Starting 37 years ago at the Patterson Hotel in downtown Bismarck to today being one of the largest vacuum & sewing stores in the Upper Midwest, J&R Vacuum & Sewing has a long history of dependable customer service.

J & R features a large variety of sewing & embroidery machines in all price ranges.  Brand names include Pfaff, Brother, Elna, Necchi and Singer. In addition, we carry a complete line of machine accessories, notions and quilt fabrics. Customers love our free machine owner’s lessons.

When it comes to a clean home or business J & R also features the most complete line of vacuums in the region with over 100 models on display and ready for you to try-before-you buy. We feature “Made in USA”, Riccar vacuums as well as Miele, Oreck, Hoover, Lindhaus, Royal, Dirt Devil, Carpet Pro and more!

Over the years, J&R has earned many sales and service awards, including Diamond Club awards from both Pfaff sewing machines & Riccar vacuums.  This is in addition to the Small Business Person of the Year award from the Bismarck/Mandan Chamber of Commerce.  We are serious about being not only the best in our community, but striving to be the best anywhere!

J & R continues to give back to the community thru charity sewing events and other community minded events.  Our Help-Us/Help-Others Charity Vacuum Program has donated well over 2,000 vacuums to needy families.

Owners Jim & Cindy Barnhardt, and the entire J & R staff want to thank the many customers who, over the years, have chosen to do business with J & R.  We also invite new customers to give us a try.

After all, “It’s All About You!”
