More than 75 years ago, two brothers, Don and Ben Nurick, bought an old gas buggy and made their way from Minnesota to Texas. They chugged through Dallas and headed south to San Antonio. By this time they were scraping the coins out of their pockets, so they found temporary jobs until their retail chain was born in February of 1940.
Don and Ben opened their first store in a small building on busy Laredo Highway and five more stores popped up in the next five years. There are now 37 locations scattered “all over town” in San Antonio and have become a staple in the city’s history.
