New owner takes over Your Neighborhood Shipping Store

By Staff | Aug 21, 2019

A store that has been in the Lehigh Acres community for 11 years recently changed ownership in July, but still offers the same services.

Your Neighborhood Shipping Store owner Peter Sabbow said he took over the store on July 13 when he purchased it from Donna and Neil Vaughan.

“They decided to retire and relocate out of the area,” he said. “I’m coming out of retirement. I was looking for a small business locally.”

Sabbow’s background is in manufacturing and human resources. Two years ago he decided to move from Columbus, Ohio, to Fort Myers.

Although there will be some updating taking place at the store, the same services and shipping will be offered.

The business offers packing and shipping through UPS, FedEx, DHL and the U.S. Postal Service, computer work, email, fax, notary work and the business is also a dealer for U-Haul.

The computer services include emailing a document that needs to be printed.

As far ax U-Haul trucks, Sabbow said they can take a reservation for any size needed and U-Haul will work to fill the reservation.

Since taking over, Sabbow has hired two new people to staff the store, both of which are Lehigh Acres residents.

“It keeps me busy. Some people just can’t retire and I am one of those people,” he said.

Your Neighborhood Shipping Store is located at the center of Lehigh Acres at 1121 Homestead Road, North. The business is open from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday and from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday.

“We do a lot of business between 5 to 6 (p.m.) with people coming back into town,” Sabbow said of during the week.
