The Kirkwood family entered the vacuum business in 1969. Ron Kirkwood opened a direct sales office in Florence, KY that started in door-to-door sales, with a service department in-house. Mark Kirkwood, as a boy, worked with his father in the door-to-door sales from the very beginning. This business quickly evolved into a retail sales and service store, with the door-to-door sales disappearing. The original location, called Tricounty Sweeper, was opened in 1972 in Erlanger, KY. Mark Kirkwood opened the first Sweeper Shop in 1982 in Reading, Ohio, as well as additional stores during the 1980’s and 90’s.
Today, Kirkwood’s Sweeper Shop has a total of Six Authorized stores which are located around the Greater Cincinnati OH and Florence KY areas. With the continued support of our valuable team members, and loyal customers, we hope to serve you for many more years.
