It all started in Santa Rosa in 1949 when Monty and Ruth Montague bought three washing machines
They kept the first one, the second went to a relative, and the third was sold off the front porch of their home. Shortly after, they built a shop in front of their house on Santa Rosa Avenue and went into business as Monty's Home Service.
Over the years the Montagues' homegrown business grew to include not only several Santa Rosa laundromats but seven retail stores in the Bay Area as well. By that time, the business had expanded to include electronics. A new inventory demanded a new name: TeeVax, short for "Television, Video and Appliance Center." In the mid-'70s, the Montagues sold the laundromats and a decade later decided to close all but the Santa Rosa store. Now, focused on its Santa Rosa site, TeeVax has expanded to include kitchen and bathroom countertops and cabinets. Its award-winning service department offers both installation and service, so you may be sure you'll get help when you need it. TeeVax is especially proud to be a member of Brand Source, one of the largest worldwide buying groups.
Serving Customers Since 1949
All similar-sized dealers, Brand Source members purchase products together so they can get the best prices available, a strategy that keeps them - and TeeVax - highly competitive in today's marketplace. TeeVax is still family-owned, and the next generation of Montagues - Ann, Ed, Pat and Mike - now run the business with more than 20 employees working to satisfy customers' needs. Their next major project will be remodeling the store to include new, state-of-the-art displays plus a new storefront designed to blend in with Railroad Square's historical atmosphere.
