Thanks to Larry and Irene Bruning, Sam Gordon, Mom and Dad, Danny and Betty, Tony and Carolyn, and some other friends and relatives, I was able to make my dream come true. My Business. I opened NS&V February 1st, 1979. The 4 years of experience with the Singer Company proved crucial to my success. I was driven by a desire to offer superior products and service. Customers were asking questions and I was adding names to my roll-a-dex, mining industry leaders for answers and solutions to problems. My roll-a-dex grew, my business flourished.
Today the theme continues. We constantly review new innovations and select new products and brands. We study independent research and perform our own test. Our service department is the backbone of our research. Here we see every product available, where they succeed and where they fail. Our intention is to choose from the numerous brands and models available and supply the best choices to meet each customer's need. Some of our customers rely on our advise and we respectfully try to earn it.
We stock Commercial and Industrial Heavy Duty Sewing Machines for the Professional and Cottage industry customer. We supply needles, parts, presser feet and accessories. We provide repair and maintenance services on site and in the store.
We have access to carpet cleaning equipment of every description, household and commercial. Host Dry Carpet Cleaning Machines and product are available for sale and for rent. If we don't have it, we can get it.
In 1985, NS&V was the first California dealer to launch Miele Vacuum sales. We became the first distributor on the west coast and opened the first 15 dealers in Northern California. We are currently one of the few Diamond Dealers in Northern California. We were first to introduce cordless phones in 1981 and first with vapor cleaning systems in 1991. August 15th, 2015 we introduced the CoolZone Ultrasonic Mister Fan with Bluetooth and Speakers. NS&V has the Scalloping Shears you've been wanting for only $39.95.
Our business supports it's sales with a knowledgeable sales staff, an experienced repair department, a generous inventory and a money back guarantee. Our staff have a compiled 100 years of experience in the sewing and vacuum industry: Leo Slattery, David Rowan, Sergio Cohen and Steve Bearden (store manager). Sergio Se Habla Espanol. Our goal is to deliver more quality products so our customers can realize the benefits and value of doing business with a local independent dealer.
We can obtain financing for those needing extended terms and we have house accounts for local businesses, schools, city and county offices, hospitals and individuals needing the convenience of 30 day net accounts.
The beauty of being an Independent Dealer is in the freedom we can exercise. When I was a Singer store manager, I had only Singer. What a drag, especially when I knew there were other great products customers were consuming. As an Independent Dealer we are not connected at the hip with any Manufacturer. Selling one brand exclusively sounds great in theory: One product, one distributor, less inventory, less knowledge needed to operate. Unfortunately, the reality is "less business" and less opportunity. We work closely with our distributors to provide repair parts and services required to accommodate the machine inventory in our community.
