Barry looks back to January 1991, when he began doing business as Today’s Vacuum Systems, Inc., selling and installing central vacuum systems through builders, home shows, advertising in local newspapers and referrals by satisfied customers.
The business was growing significantly when in 1994 he opened the first showroom in the Windsor Park Shopping Center in Mechanicsburg.
To supplement the Central Vacuum business, Barry added Miele portable vacuums and repairs in addition to premium charcoal, gas and specialty grills from Weber and shortly thereafter Napoleon Grills.
In 1998, Barry changed the name to Today’s Home & Leisure Products, to better describe the business after adding home theater, distributed audio and other low voltage products to the lineup.
Today’s Home & Leisure has evolved into a very successful full service one stop low voltage integrator unlike any other in the area concentrating on service with all work being performed by well qualified and trained employees.
Being in business for over 30 years, Today’s Home & Leisure has come a long way with Michael taking over the estimating and designing of all home theater and home automation projects in addition to many other aspects of this second generation business.
These days you will find Michael’s wife Jennifer in the office taking care of administrative matters and learning all the different aspects of the family business as our administrative assistant.
Their children, Hailey and Braden can sometimes be found lending their assistance in any way that they can.
It is great seeing everyone working together during these times making Michele and I proud parents and grandparents while doing so.
