Our History


M and H Appliance (originally known as "The Maytag Shop") was started in 1932 by my grandfather Leo Matter. My father John Matter and his brother-in-law Al Heydman owned and operated the store from the early 1950s through the late 1970s. At that time, my cousin Bob Heydman and I joined the partnership and ran M & H Appliance for 16 years. In 1995 Bob Regan purchased Bob Heydman's portion of the business and became my partner.

Over the years, the store was in four different locations on 5th Avenue in Downtown St. Cloud. Ultimately, M & H Appliance operated on the corner of 5th Avenue and St. Germain Street for almost 50 years. We moved to our new location on 29th Avenue in August of 2009.

Grandpa Leo started by selling and servicing Maytag products exclusively. Today our selection of name brand home appliances has expanded tremendously, but we remain committed to providing the best service in central Minnesota.
