About Us

It all started in 1964 when Al Bedard recognised the need for a sewing machine and vacuum repair centre in Sarnia. Al was formally trained by the Singer Company and opened his first shop in the Mitton Village of Sarnia. Al’s Vacuum has always been in high demand for quality products and service so there was always work to be done around the shop. That’s when Al’s youngest son Rob came into the picture. Starting part-time on weekends and after school Rob was introduced at an early age. His love for the business became his passion as he learned every aspect and was always eager to know more. As time went on the business was continually growing and more help was needed. This is when Rob’s older brother Mike stepped into the picture. Mike played a vital role along side Rob as the leaders of the company and future directors. Their succession plan was a huge success as they facilitated their third move into their current location. As with their previous moves they were in desperate need of a larger location to keep up with the demand.

Al’s Vacuum and Sewing Centre is now Sarnia and Lambton County’s trusted business for top quality and affordable vacuum cleaners, sewing machines, quilting supplies, parts, accessories and expert service. Through the years Al’s Vacuum has evolved into experts in Central Vacuum sales and installation, commercial cleaning equipment, as well as professional scissor sharpening.

For the sewers of Sarnia you can rely on Al’s to exceed your needs of quilting supplies, notions, top quality specialty scissors, accessory feet, Reliable steam irons and ironing boards. Al’s also boasts a huge selection of over 300 colours of Metler and Janome embroidery thread.

I had great service here today. The staff was very friendly and found the specific part I was looking for. They have a great selection of vacuums and sewing machines.

Darryl Campbell

Love this store, I love to sew and Al’s have a great selection of sewing machines. But what is even better is they have knowledgable staff. They know the machines they sell and enjoy showing what they can do. They even shate their knowledge and give you classes so you know how to use your machine. Not all stores do that. The staff is helpful and friendly.

Ann McInnis

Our son loves vacuums, and every time we have gone there, Rob has been fantastic taking the time to show him all of the different vacuum cleaners the store has. What an awesome store to have in our community. If you’re looking for a vacuum, make sure you check in here. Rob knows his stuff.
