I *was* in the market for a new vacuum cleaner after borrowing my friend's Dyson dc17 animal. After doing plenty of research online I decided that that was the vacuum for me-I have a large, shedding black lab.
I started my search online to get an idea of what the vacuums cost. Then I searched for vacuum shops in Batavia. I was shocked that there was a locally owned, independant vacuum shop right in Batavia!
I gave the Corner Vacuum Shop a visit this morning and came out a happy man. I got a factory reconditioned (which saved me about 25%) Dyson dc17-which I was assured is as good as new. The owner of the shop gave me great information about other vacuums and said his shop would take care of the vacuum if I had any problems with it, even beyond the Dyson warranty. He even threw in an extra $20 filter for free!
If you're in the market for a Dyson specifically, or a vacuum in general, stop at the Corner Vacuum Shop before going to Walmart, Target, Sears, etc. You won't be disappointed in the good ole fashioned service/price (the chains don't carry factory reconditioned models).
FYI - I am in no way affiliated with this store-I just wanted to pay them a well deserved compliment!
