If you need a vacuum cleaner go buy an Oreck vacuum cleaner. Not only is it one of the finest vacuum cleaners out there, but it's made in Mississippi and they just now reopened the factory and put their 1300 employees back to work. I own one already, and can vouch for their efficacy.
They did this after moving their HQ temporarily to Dallas, and letting some employees stay in a tent city on the factory grounds.
They have stayed in business with the help of IBM and other corporations that have helped them take care of their workers.
Let's help them stay up and running, and help restart the regions economy back from near death.
