Hello vacuumlanders, it's been a while since I was last on here, I've been quiet due to a difficult time.

As the title suggests, last year I managed to get a new job at John Lewis, for the non Brits, this is a middle class department store in England. I am enjoying it very well, and I get to sell Sebo once again!

However, early December, my brother was tragically killed, hence why I haven't been on here, I've just not had the inclination.

But as we are a vacuum forum, has anyone else had experience with the new Miele Blizzard yet? I've tried it out briefly at JL, and I am really taken with it.

I'm so sorry for your loss of your brother.

I have a friend who is a Miele dealer, he told me the bagless machine won't be available until the end of 2017 in the US. He didn't know whether or not it would have an electrobrush, but in all likelihood, it will.

Congrats on your job selling Sebo and others at John Lewis.

I, too, lost a brother a few years ago.  He was buried the day after CHRISTMAS. was awful.

 I'm very sorry for your loss.

  I'm also glad to see you working in a place where you can run machines.

  That brand is not my "cup of tea", but, I'd never bash.

 Good luck.  Here's looking at better times in 2017.

So sorry to hear about your Brother, Adam.

Good luck in your new job at John Lewis. One of my favourite stores. I bet it's nice to be selling SEBO's again! Some JL's seem to have scaled down their SEBO display! I'm yet to see a Miele Blizzard in the flesh! Hoping to see one soon in the flesh!
