A Little History on This Sewing Business
Founded on Augst 11, 1966, by Guy Plourde and his wife Rachel, the seamstresses’ favourite business had storefront in several places in the early years. Moving from Court Street to Saint-François Street in rented premises, it was 5 years later that the founders became owners of a building on Du Pouvoir Street.
The business had the wind in its sails when the owners were unfortunately expropriated. They then settled on Victoria Street where the business is still operating.
A New Brand is Added to the Famous Necchi Sewing Machine
The Janome brand was added to Necchi. Today, the shop’s large inventory offers a full range of domestic Janome sewing machines. The majority of sewing machine brands are available in industrial sewing machines.
Plourde Sewing Machines hadn’t set any limits and shortly after its opening, vacuum cleaners, commonly known as « sweepers », were also sold. Starting with the renowned Eureka, vacuum cleaner brand, the La Vallé and DrainVac brands followed. The latter is still the business’s most common brand of central vacuum cleaners.
