In business since 1962, Mudge's Appliances can now boast it is a fourth generation, family-owned operation that has stood for quality and customer service. Owner Bob Mudge is proud to have his daughter Heather join the team at 7 Hydro Rd., in St. Thomas. Heather is responsible for office administration and welcomes the opportunity to learn the business, working alongside her father. "Dad has evolved the business from a one man band to an efficient team. It's exciting for me to play a role in the business that has been such a significant part of our family. I know that I can learn a lot about retail, service and appliances from my father." Surviving in business for almost a half century requires dedication, perseverance, and a commitment to service. That success is built on a great support staff at Mudge's, stresses Bob. "We have seven service technicians, six of them on the road with fully-stocked vans. Three or more support staff in the store handle telephone inquiries and walk in traffic for parts and service." And it helps when you've got the best names in the business to offer your customers - appliances from KitchenAid, Whirlpool, Maytag, Amana, and Frigidaire.
