Dressing Up Tampa

Local businesses are rolling out the red-white-and-blue carpets for those traveling to Tampa to get their G-O-P-on at the Republican National Convention later this month.

State Vacuum — the self-proclaimed “World’s Largest Vacuum Store” — has even transformed its customary sports-jersey-clad gorilla greeter into a star-spangled, chapeau-wearing pachyderm.

We hear his counterpart on the opposite corner is currently decked out as Gorilla Uncle Sam.

So remember, conventioneers: State Vacuum is the place for all your away-from-home sucking needs.
