Amols’, our iconic novelty and party store on S. Flores Street, will be moving a couple of miles up the road toward the Deco District soon, and owners Jeffrey and Maritza Weiss aren’t happy to go. After 55 years at their current location, the decision to move is a very emotional one. The neighborhood went through hard times, but Jeffrey’s grandfather, founder Julian Amols, stuck it out at the same address downtown. Julian loved the central location with easy access to highways on both sides.
“I grew up here – this is our home. I have always worked here and we love this neighborhood and location,” said Jeffrey. He grew up working with his grandfather and took over the business in 1991.
