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  Bob Gray purchased Derrel’s and relocated the store to Town and Country Plaza, followed by a move to our current location at 5559 N. Davis Hwy in 2004.  As of Dec. 1,2014 Bob Gray sold  Derrel’s to Susan Kline who has worked at Derrel’s since 2008.
