Stores with a Story: Susan Glass, Singer Sewing

“I had 3 kids at home, and I wanted to find something that I can make money doing. I always loved sewing, so I thought I could get into making wedding gowns and bean bag chairs. When Hurricane Iniki hit in Hawaii, that’s where I lived at the time, there was no electricity and the only place I can sew was at a local upholstery store that had a generator. They hired me on the spot, and from there I had 2 years of apprenticeship in upholstery. I came down to Corpus and bought Singer Sewing from the previous owner, and now I get to share my skills and passion with other sewers in South Texas. It’s truly a blessing.”
– Susan Glass, Singer Sewing Center

Stores with a Story: Panjo’s Pizza Parlor

Panjo’s Pizza Parlor has been family owned and operated at Gulfway Shopping Center since 1964. The small pizza parlor became the first to deliver pizza in Corpus Christi, TX. Urban development south and east of Corpus Christi put the small pizza parlor in the center of an expanding city. The small parlor became a local hot spot for families and tourists.

Jimmie Garret bought the company in 1991, leaving an everlasting tradition of great pizza and service for families to gather around for three generations. Panjo’s has kept the original menu since 1964, along with additional items that were integrated in time. Jimmie was known for sampling his product several times before purchasing them. Panjo’s has kept the same quality in taste and texture for the past 50 years that has brought them raving reviews.

Bubba Jacobs, long time pianist for Panjo’s Pizza Parlor.

Panjo’s Pizza brought great memories for residents and tourists in Corpus Christi. Families would gather around the wooden tables and sing along to old time classics led by local legend, “Bubba” Jacobs. His piano skills were cherished by the community every Friday and Saturday. Bubba led 50 years of “Cheers” and countless good times for families and friends to enjoy.

Panjo’s family environment and quality of food has brought them sustained success for over 50 years. They look forward to keeping the same family atmosphere that Jimmie left. They are still located at the Gulfway Shopping Center on the corner of Airline and S.P.I.D. serving the thin and crispy pizzas our community has enjoyed since 1964.

 

Crossroads Shopping Center

Crossroads Shopping Village is named for its strategic location at the intersection of the 5800 block of McArdle and Airline Rd.  The village feel is the first of its kind in Corpus Christi, with its leisurely tone and nostalgic atmosphere.  Crossroads has proven to be one of the most interesting and enjoyable places to shop—a place for those who like uniqueness.  The idea for Crossroads was born in 1976 with nine houses and business structures at the Crossroads location, each dating back to the early Forties.

Small Business Saturday at Crossroads Shopping Center

This Saturday is Small Business Saturday and there is an abundant amount of small businesses that call Crossroads Shopping Center home. Small businesses may not have a huge market like corporations do, but small businesses are a huge asset to local communities.

There is nothing small about small businesses when it comes down to our economy. Since 1995, 64% of new jobs in the U.S. have come from small businesses. Small businesses also account for 44% of U.S. private payroll. Higher revenues for small businesses would increase taxes that go directly towards local schools, first responders, and infrastructure.
