Scott & Cheryl Light

Owners Scott & Cheryl Light

A to Z Vacuum and Fan Store is one of the largest retail vacuum stores of its kind and has serviced the Berks County area since 1959. Our vacuum and ceiling fan retail store gives personalized care and knowledgeable service to its customers and provides exceptional service after the sale. Additional products sold include cleaning products, tiffany lighting, heaters, and air purifiers.

The first A to Z retail store was established by Scott’s father, Ronald M. Light in 1959. Ron Light started in the vacuum business selling Air Way vacuums door to door and found his niche. The first retail store was set up in Reading, PA and the business soon outgrew the space and relocated to 416 Penn Avenue, West Reading, PA in 1971 which was the store’s location until December 2012. In 2012, the store was relocated to the current location at 350 Park Road in Wyomissing, PA. At this time ownership transitioned from the owner and founder, Ronald M. Light, to his son Scott Light. Our store has maintained an excellent reputation and is a well-respected vacuum and ceiling fan store in the Berks County area. We have a very knowledgeable sales force and a dependable service department.

Scott grew up in the business and began working in the store at an early age. He started in the service department and then moved to customer sales. Scott has been involved in all aspects of the business throughout his 45 year career at the store.

Cheryl is a Certified Public Accountant and became involved with the business when the ownership transferred to Scott in 2012. She oversees the finances of the business and acts as the Treasurer/Secretary.

The Original A to Z store on Penn Avenue

A to Z’s niche comes from the variety of vacuums and fans we have available for our customers to see and demo. This is an advantage over our competition that have only a few select vacuums and fans available for comparison and purchase. Our service department offers a very valuable service to our customers which allows them to get service after the sale on the products we sell.

We pride ourselves on selling only quality products that have well documented customer satisfaction. Our service department is one-of-a-kind in the area and provides specialized service that other competitors cannot. We have an expertise in our field due to the exclusive products we sell, which allows us to concentrate on just a few products verses the wide variety of products sold in large department stores.

Our store is well respected as being the best place to buy vacuums and fans in the Berks County area. Our sales staff spends time with each customer to make sure they are purchasing the right product for their individualized needs. Repairs are done on the premises and loaner vacuums are available while customer vacuums are being repaired.

We hope you consider A to Z Vacuum & Fan when purchasing a vacuum or ceiling fan. If you’re already one of our customers, thank you for your business. If you are not, we would love to have you as a new customer. We’ll personally guarantee your satisfaction before and after the sale!
