Opened in 1950 by Pensacola entrepreneur Derrel Slaughter as “Derrel’s Sewing Machines and Vacuums,” Derrel’s was originally located at West Cervantes and “T” Street in west Pensacola, Florida. Derrel’s opening product lineup included Swiss-made Bernina sewing machines and Hoover vacuums. In 1983, current owner and manager Bob Gray purchased Derrel’s and relocated the store to Town and Country Plaza. In 2001, Derrel’s stopped carrying vacuums to focus solely on sewing products. In 2005 Derrel’s moved from Town and Country Plaza to our current location in Davis Tower Plaza in the heart of Pensacola. This year, Bob celebrated his thirtieth year as the proud owner and manager of Derrel’s of Pensacola.
Though management has changed and we have moved three times over the years, Derrel’s mission remains the same as it has been since 1950: we still provide quality products and service to the Gulf Coast and beyond.
