Also, Best Store for Home Appliances

The first two things you see when walking into Vann’s are a sign commemorating the store’s 50th anniversary and an enormous Panasonic Viera 3D television display that would dwarf some movie screens. The one-two punch tells you almost everything you need to know about this still-growing Montana-owned chain. Pete Vann bought an old electronics store in Missoula in 1961 after working in it as a janitor and, later, as a “tube jockey” fixing tubes in old television sets. Five decades later, Vann’s still specializes in home electronics, although the “tube jockeys” have been replaced with experts on 3D, HD, and surround sound. And if you’re looking to update more than just your entertainment system, the section of the store just beyond that Panasonic 3D display features a vast array of washing machines, dryers, refrigerators, and other home appliances. There are experts there, too, who continue to follow in the tradition first established by Pete Vann many years ago. Vann’s: 3623 Brooks St.; 728-5151; vanns.com
