Earley Radio & TV Company
Started by Willard A. Earley in 1929, this shop sold and repaired radios and televisions in this busy part of town until son Wayne Earley, who had taken over, retired and closed the shop in 2001.
Willard studied chicken husbandry at Essex Aggie before he got sidelined into fixing radios and personally delivering them to his customers.
Earley Radio & TV was on lower Lafayette Street. Business was strongest right after the second World War. Now customers don't repair their television, but purchase new ones.
