About Us in Erie, PA

Company History

In 1948, Wellie Yaple Sr. started with the Hoover Company, selling vacuums door to door. Yaple's Vacuum was born in 1957 when this family-owned business opened their doors on 23rd and French Streets to the first customer. Just five years later, it became Yaple's Sewing and Vacuum Center as the wonderful world of sewing machines was added.

Making a Move

The business moved to West 26th and Liberty Street in 1976 due to a major, devastating fire at the original location. Bigger and expanded—the business now carries many trusted brands, such as:
  • Pfaff™
  • Brother™
  • Simplicity™
  • Panasonic™
  • Hoover
  • Sebo™
  • Dyson
  • Miele™
  • Royal™
  • Sanitaire™
  • Husqvarna Viking™

The Business Today

Now owned by the third generation, Yaple's Vacuum Cleaner & Sewing Machine Center carries the same brands and offers the same pricing as the chain stores, but we deliver excellence in customer service. Being the tri-state area's warranty center for sewing machines and vacuums, our knowledgeable staff is always ready to assist you when you're making a purchase.

Offering vacuum and sewing machine repair and a stocked parts department, we also offer free assembly on any products sold. Even with the latest technology, our center still delivers that old-fashioned, hometown touch that the big chain stores just can't match.
