Welcome to our website! As we have the ability to list over one million items on our website (our selection changes all of the time), it is not feasible for a company our size to record and playback the descriptions on every item on our website. However, if you have a disability we are here to help you. Please call our disability services phone line at 847-259-2550 during regular business hours and one of our kind and friendly personal shoppers will help you navigate through our website, help conduct advanced searches, help you choose the item you are looking for with the specifications you are seeking, read you the specifications of any item and consult with you about the products themselves. There is no charge for the help of this personal shopper for anyone with a disability. Finally, your personal shopper will explain our Privacy Policy and Terms of Service, and help you place an order if you so desire.

As an independent dealer we look to market ourselves as a specialty appliance outlet. Our focus is to the residential appliance products. We choose products that are going to be the best possible value for function and quality. We display product in a large but not overwhelming showroom so clients can focus on the products they need. Our staff is knowledgeable and courteous and would love to walk you or client around our showroom where they can see, touch, and feel the products to make the right purchase decision.

Since 1913

We have been in business since 1913 and in our third generation of family. We are one of only .5% of businesses that can say they have been established that long. We take great pride of that fact. Since we have been established for so long, we are a financially strong business you can be assured will be here when you need us. We practice responsible business morals and strong ethical behavior to maintain our integrity or you and your clients.


Novak and Parker was founded in 1913 by Joe Novak and Robert Parker. They established their business in an effort to serve their community much like it is established today. Now in its third generation of Novak ownership, unlike most businesses, we do not feel much has changed. There is still a need for businesses that provide quality goods and services to their community. There were and are always new products and services to embrace. It is our job at serving our community to bring you the best possible products and services our industry has to offer.
