Vacuum Cleaner Store in Kentucky and Indiana Encourages Employees to Focus on Family by Closing Doors on Sunday

April 03, 2015 (PRLEAP.COM) Lifestyle News
April 3, 2015 - Vacuum Authority, a regional retailer specializing in premium vacuum cleaners and accessories, air conditioners, air purifiers, infrared heaters, central vacuums, garage vacuums, stick vacuums, hand vacuums and commercial vacuums, specially crafted cleaning supplies and other home comfort products, announces that it will no longer open its doors on Sundays. The change in operation will be effective on Easter Sunday, April 5th 2015.

This new policy is the Vacuum Authority's way of giving its employees a day where they can rest and spend quality time with family and friends. The Vacuum Authority also recognizes the importance of having Sunday as day to spend in fellowship and worship and wants their employees to not have the burden of worrying about work on Sunday.

Russell Gay, President and Owner of Vacuum Authority stores, explains his decision to close on Sundays,"It's something I've been thinking about for quite a while and I decided now is the right time to do it. I like being able to give all of our employees a day off to relax and spend time with their families… It just feels like the right thing to do."

As a second-generation family owned business owner, Russell Gay has high ambitions to carry on some of the traditions and family values he grew up with. "I can still remember the only thing on the wall of my father's office were the 10 Commandments," explains Gay, as he discusses his decision.

As a busy father of three young boys, Gay enjoys spending any free time he has with his wife Melissa, and his family. He's also very active in the community and church, volunteering as a middle school lacrosse coach for his son's team, and supporting numerous local organizations including the Family Scholar House.

Following the practice of other national chains that are also closed on Sundays like Chick-fil-A and Hobby Lobby, the Vacuum Authority prides itself on being a family-owned and operated retailer. Along with delivering a first-rate customer experience, creating a work-environment high in overall employee satisfaction is very important to the company. When asked how the employees have reacted to the news, Russell Gay explains, "Oh everyone is just really excited. All around our employees think our decision to close on Sundays is a great idea."

By closing on Sundays, Gay aims to have the chance to spend more time with his own family, while also supporting the families of his employees with the one thing we can never get back, the gift of time together. The Vacuum Authority hopes and trusts our customers will support this decision, as it is one that is not made lightly. Last year, Sundays represented 10% of the company sales daily total.
