How it all began: Back in 2006, owner Dan Miller worked at a trailer factory by day and in early evening he would work for Town and Country Appliance in Goshen where he learned a lot about home appliance functions. Dan, along with his wife Carol, always dreamed of being their own bosses and owning a business. As Dan learned more about home appliances, it just made sense to start a business involving something he knew so well and enjoyed. In thinking about a location for the business, a building on the north side of Goshen seemed to be a good spot, and that is where the name comes from, though the business did not first open on the north side of town.
Opening the Doors: For about a year, Dan and Carol worked on setting everything in place to get North Side Appliance off the ground and running. On February 12, 2007, North Side Appliance opened its doors on U.S. 33 in Goshen. The first year was a tough year, but that is true for the majority of small local businesses starting out, and obviously the store has made it through.
Hard Times in the Recession: When the economy took a downturn in 2007, the business had its fair share of struggles all the way through until the fall of 2009. Meanwhile, the business had made a move to its current location at 1920 Elkhart Road in Goshen, Indiana. In the fall of 2009, it seemed that with no financing available the business would not make it to see the light of day, and maybe the doors would close. But Carol had always known that God would carry them through. She always remembered the promise that He gives in Jeremiah 32:17 which says, “Ah Lord GOD! behold, thou hast made the heaven and the earth by thy great power and stretched out arm, and there is nothing too hard for thee.” And she fully believed in His power and provision for North Side Appliance.
Thankful for God's Blessings: North Side Appliance is now fast approaching the 10-year anniversary mark (February 2017) of opening their doors. It is amazing to think that 10 years have passed since taking the leap of faith to open a business. Carol works in the store full-time assisting customers in choosing the right home appliance to fit their needs. Dan works as the lead (and only) technician, making home service calls to those in the Elkhart county area. They are both thankful that Elkhart county is full of great people who show their support for small local businesses.
