Owner retiring, but local store not closing


The Vac Shop has been put up for sale, but owner Steve Jackson wants people in the community to know it's not closing. Jackson, 71, says he won't begin his retirement until after he finds a buyer who wants to keep The Vac Shop's doors' open, and continue providing his customers with the sales and service they've come to expect. "You've got to have somebody that wants to learn how to repair (vacuum cleaners)," said Jackson. And he's willing to teach a new owner as he learned from the previous owner. He said a retiree who has an interest in repairing mechanical equipment and "is good with people" would make a perfect owner of this business. Jackson, who has owned the Versailles business since 2000, said he put The Vac Shop up for sale about 10 months ago and people have been confused by his intentions. He wants to sell his business so he can have back surgery, but he's not closing The Vac Shop, located on Crossfield Drive near Little Caesars Pizza. Before opening The Vac Shop, Jackson operated a vacuum shop in Georgetown after closing his janitorial business.
