About Us

It’s All About You!

Started 37 years ago at the Patterson Hotel in downtown Bismarck, J&R Vacuum & Sewing has become one of the largest vacuum & sewing stores in the Upper Midwest.

J&R features a large variety of sewing & embroidery machines in all price ranges including Pfaff, Brother, Elna, Necchi and Singer. In addition, we carry a complete line of machine accessories, notions and quilt fabrics.

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 to try before you buy. We feature Riccar vacuums, which are made in the U.S., 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 and 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 through charity sewing and other community events.  Our Help-Us/Help-Others Charity Vacuum Program has donated well over 2,000 vacuums to needy families.

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

After all, it’s all about you!
