By Judd & Black Appliance | Shared by Lynnwood Times

Now as much as ever, it takes amazing employees, loyal customers and a supportive community to thrive as a local business – especially for 80 years.

Judd & Black Appliance is celebrating its 80th anniversary in 2020 after launching at the start of World War II, surviving the upheaval of 9-11 and now facing the uncertainties of the coronavirus pandemic.

“We’re humbled by so many years of support that we’ve received from customers and employees,” said company president Bob Long, a third-generation owner.

Long said the retailer will continue its philosophy of giving back to the community by donating $10 to local food banks, up to $25,000, for each appliance order at any of its locations from April 16 to May 10. The food banks are Lynnwood Food Bank, Marysville Community Food Bank, Volunteers of America Everett Food Bank, Skagit Valley Neighbors in Need, and Bellingham Food Bank.
