Barton Carroll’s fills appliance needs in many ways


Owner Barton (Barry) Carroll Norcross began Barton Carroll’s in Joliet some 33 years ago on March 1, 1980, hen he was out of work.

“I started the business when the economy was much like it is today,” Barry said. “The original location was on Chicago Street. I ran the business on my own ... selling, delivering, and servicing my customers locally. We moved to our current location (720 E. Cass St.) 13 years ago and now have eight full time and five part-time employees to better serve our customers.”

Barton Carroll’s sells new appliances in the box with warranty, new scratch-and-dent appliances with full factory warranty, used appliances, and new bedding with full factory warranty. Used appliances come with a 2- to 6-month warranty through Barton Carroll’s.

“We have customers from all over the state for retail sales. If you’re tired of the service at the big box stores stop in for some personal service at a locally owned store,” Carroll said.

The used appliances meet an increasing need in today’s economy. Customers who pick up their appliance get a discount, and Carroll’s loads and ties down everything. Delivery is available for a nominal fee.

Employees of Barton Carroll’s include

Ken Roxberg; office manager, sales and computer IT; Justin Wietting, operations manager; Bryan Roxberg, Tesla service technician and warehouse manager; Cornelius Weems, delivery; Henry Kooyenga, delivery and building maintenance; Julius Warner, sales and building maintenance; Bob Ward, sales; Wayne Holcomb, Tesla service technician, Leah Roxberg, sales, appliance detailing.
