In 1985 a man named Don Maresh had a dream to become an entrepreneur and leave the grind of working at a corporate job. He knew a friend in the vacuum industry and with some encouragement from him, he decided to open a vacuum store. That store was named “The Vac Shop” and it was located in Lyons, Illinois. Don took a huge risk opening a business with a young family at home, but over the past 34 years has created a small business with 4 locations in two states that now has the second generation working for it.
Kimberly Thomason begun her career at her dad’s stores at age 5, organizing customer repair cards, counting inventory and dusting the store for candy bar salary. She also peddled her girl scout cookies from the showroom of the store in Lyons. In 2002 she worked her way up to store Manager of one of the locations in Illinois. She grew the sales of that location quickly. In 2009 Don and Kimberly decided to purchase the store in Boca Raton. Fast foward to today, Kimberly is Owner/Operating the store in Boca.
