About Us


J&R Vacuum & Sewing was established in 1977. From humble beginnings at the Patterson Hotel building in downtown Bismarck, we grew to become one of the largest vacuum & sewing stores in the Upper Midwest.

J&R now features a large variety of sewing & embroidery machines in all price ranges including Pfaff, Brother, Elna, Viking 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, ready to try before you buy. We feature Riccar vacuums, which are made in the U.S., as well as Miele, Oreck, Dyson, Hoover, Lindhaus, Royal, Dirt Devil, Carpet Pro, and more!

Over the years, J&R has earned many sales and service awards for both sewing and 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!

At J&R we believe in giving back to the community. We encourage our staff members to volunteer to help the community through charity events, missions, churches, and other volunteer opportunities. Our Help-Us/Help-Others Charity Vacuum Program has donated well over 2,500 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!
