His unique store, which opened in 1998, has served its customer focusing on giving the best service possible. “Family values, community-oriented,” Vladdy said. “I wanted the focus to be on the relationship first.”

Vladdy said the business has made it through the years because of its expertise and focus on customers.
“You’re becoming part of the fabric of the relationship and to have fun and get to meet amazing people makes it easier to fall in love with the industry,” he said. “I love that.”
