Many salvage stores don't have phones and, therefore, aren't listed in any phone book. The "Amish Community Business Directory" available at Mary Yoder's Restaurant lists several, but not all. To our knowledge, this is the most complete current listing available. (All directions assume you're traveling east from the Cleveland area.)
