It is hard to find top-of-the-line vacuums in the GTA. I searched online stores in vein. Most of the better vacuums were in the US but many of the warranties would not be honoured in Canada.
Our family had bought an upright vacuum 10 years ago and only recently needed repair.
We can't stand the clumsiness of the common cannister based vacuums--just too dusty and quickly have parts breaking.
The new upright Riccar was light weight, perfect for seniors, cordless, so very little fuss, and quiet. It was discounted when we bought it so that was an extra treat. One year warranty included.
The store is in a plaza and has a couple dedicated parking spots out front. Call to check if parking is available.
Knowledgeable and friendly service; highly recommended.
