Solomon's traffics in the obsolete notion that appliances don't have to be thrown away once they break; they can be repaired! I hear Solomon's can fix almost anything. The store is in Bensonhurst in 86st Street near 17th Avenue, and has been around for more than 55 years. The sign features those words you like to see: factory authorized. They're not kidding. Solomon's is a factory service center for about 100 companies, including Black & Decker, Braun, Dirt Devil, Kitchen Aid, Norelco and Waring.
