History

In the 1920’s Rutherford Reiter, my grandfather, worked for the Kirby company selling vacuum cleaners door to door. In 1936, he opened Regina Vacuum in St.Paul on University Ave. His son, Richard Reiter, started working for him as a teenager, attended college, and began working full time at the vacuum store. He took over ownership in the 1950’s. At 8 years old, I started to go to work with my dad in the summer. After high school I was working full time. In 1994, I took over ownership of the vacuum store. We are happy to serve every customer that calls or comes into our store. Thank you for visiting our site.
