This is the history of Advanced Appliance. Cliff Cooper came to Winston-Salem in 1956 but fell on extremely hard times while he was there. However, was fortunate enough to find a job at a furniture shop called Rominger Furniture Co. He worked for a pick up and delivery service for a while picking up old refrigerators, trading them in, repairing them, then reselling them or a little extra. Cliff would ask the furniture company to do this for them but was told no. He would go on to quite and start a buisness for himself called LinCo Appliances at Ogburn station.
