ABK vacuum cleaner store moves to Bristol Street

ABK Vacuum Cleaner Sales and Service, displaced due to the looming Prarie Street overpass project, has relocated to 424 E. Bristol St. in Elkhart.

ELKHART — ABK Vacuum Cleaner Sales and Service has moved to a new location at 424 E. Bristol St., displaced from its original spot by the looming Prairie Street overpass project.

The store had been located at Prairie and Main streets south of the city center. Widening of Prairie on either side of the planned overpass just to the north, however, will require that space, hence the move.

The vacuum cleaner store moved on March 8 after finalizing the sale of the old property to the city of Elkhart, according to John Augustino, the store’s owner. The store’s telephone number remains the same, 294-1835.

The overpass will allow freer movement of autos on Prairie Street there, and Augustino said stoppages due to passing trains had been an issue at the old business location. Several homes and other properties are also to be abandoned due to the project.

ABK first opened in 1964 and Augustino, who took over from his father, has owned it since 1983.

The government has failed to inspect virtually all of the chemical facilities that it considers to be at high risk for a terror attack, numbering in the thousands, and has underestimated the threat to densely populated cities, congressional investigators say.
