About Us

It’s All About You!

From it’s 1977 beginnings in the basement of the Patterson Hotel in downtown Bismarck to being one of the largest vacuum & sewing stores in the Upper Midwest, J & R Vacuum & Sewing has a long history of customer service.

Recently J & R has added the Brother brand of sewing & embroidery machines to compliment the Pfaff brand we have carried for many years. Within the last month the Miele brand of German made vacuums has been added to compliment our Riccar “Made in USA” vacuums. In addition, many other brands of vacuum & sewing products are carried including Oreck, Panasonic, Koala, Dirt Devil, Arrow, Carpet Pro, Lindhaus, Royal and Hoover.

Over the years, J & R has earned many sales & 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 has given back to the community thru charity sewing events and other community minded events. In addition, our Help-Us/Help-Others Charity Vacuum Program has donated well over 1,000 vacuums to needy families!
Owners Jim & Cindy Barnhardt, along with 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!”
