Mark’s Appliance, owned by Mark Bradley, was established in April 1994.

Mark’s Appliance provides sales, service and parts for most major brands of home appliances to customers throughout the Madison County area. They sell it, deliver it, install it and service it – it is truly one stop shopping. From competitive pricing to knowledgeable sale associates to certified installation technicians, Mark’s Appliance handles all their business from beginning to the very end.

Mark grew up in Iowa, where he found his passion as a handyman. His family raised soybean and corn while they sold farm herbicides and insecticides. They also installed grain bins and grain handling equipment. Growing up Mark always found something that needed fixing. After college, Mark was recruited by Maytag, and after seven years as a sales representative he decided to open his own store. With his father being a small business owner as well, Mark always knew he would follow in his father’s footsteps.

Mark’s Appliance is also involved in the D.A.R.E program by offering their customers a unique way to support drug and alcohol resistance from teens. Mark and his employees created the “Dare to Compare” program, which guarantees better prices over their competitors. A portion of each purchase will be donated to the D.A.R.E program. Mark’s Appliance also supports a variety of organizations through Sunday bulletin, charity auctions and golf scrambles.

Mark as been able to meet great people through the Chamber of Commerce, many of whom he can turn to for advice about his business and customers. Mark also accredits his employees for their hard work and the success of Mark’s Appliance.
