Nybakke Vacuum Shop April 1982
Nybakke is currently celebrating its 85th anniversary, making it one of the oldest family-owned businesses in Central Illinois. In 1982—which was 35 years ago!—the Nybakke clan looked back on its first 50 years in the vacuum sales and service trade. At the time the business was located at 229 E. Front St. in downtown Bloomington. In 1993, the family relocated to their current location, 814 IAA Drive.
