Established in 1954.
Cathey's was founded by Friou Cathey, Sr. and his wife Myrtle in 1954 on Stone Avenue in Tucson, Arizona. Originally, Cathey's only sold vacuums but expanded to the sales and repair of sewing machines in the 1960s. As a family business, Friou Jr. and Donny worked with their parents running the store until Donny opened an additional store on Speedway Boulevard in 1978.
Today Cathey's has two locations at 5701 E. Speedway and 8700 N. Oracle. Still a family business, Donny and Janice Cathey own and operate Cathey's with the assistance of their children Matthew, Troy, Andy, Carly and Geordy. Cathey's 35 employees also share the family values and tradition started by Friou and Myrtle over 60 years ago!
