A couple of weeks ago, the oldest pawn shop in Boston celebrated its 100th anniversary. Can you imagine? A pawn shop that’s been open for 100 years? That means it was opened the same year as Fenway Park, the Titanic sank, the Republic of China was formed and airplanes dropped both the first bomb and first parachuter in history. True, it’s not the oldest store in the country (that honor goes to L. Oppleman in Virginia, which was opened in 1890), but it’s a huge milestone nonetheless.
We here at La Familia aren’t celebrating our 100th anniversary any time soon (unless you count 97 years as “soon”), but we do have a big milestone to announce: the opening of our 20th store this week! That’s right: on Friday, May 11, we’ll open a new location in Yauco, Puerto Rico.* And, in true La Familia style, we’ll be celebrating with a big party that includes giveaways, deals on merchandise and an appearance by celebrity Luisito Vigoreaux. The fun starts at 9 am, so for all of you in area, come join us!
*The new store is located at Yauco Plaza II, Carr. 128 Km 0.5 unit 24a, Yauco, Puerto Rico 00698.
