How it all began...
Tom started T-J Service because he saw a need in Charles City for appliance repair and sales. In 1976 he started doing appliance repair out of his home with Julie handling the intake of service calls. When the opportunity arose to have a sales floor on Main Street, he jumped and the chance and opened the doors in 1987.
In 1995, a new idea came to fruition with the possibility to purchase a building on Main Street and they opened Charles City Electronics as a franchise of RadioShack just across from T-J Service. Shortly there after Julie started at the store. Soon they added bicycle repair. By winter the blossoming business became a U.S. Cellular Authorized Agent. The following year satellites were added to the mix. By 1998 the decision was made to combine the businesses and the appliances were rolled over to their current location.
Over the years some of the services offered have changed. Yet the businesses ideals have stayed the same. Tom and Julie's commitment to the community and customer service is still paramount. Their staff's willingness to go the extra mile for each and every customer is of that. T-J Service and Charles City Electronics continue to be the area's go to lace for appliance and electronics needs.
