|Murrillo's: your 'llanta" place for over 30 years|
Some well known businesses that had their origins in the Gateway City include the former Laredo National Bank, International Bank of Commerce, Danny's Restaurants and Taco Palenque. All of these have gone on to open branches in other parts of the state. Laredo National Bank was eventually bought by BBVA Bank which continues to expand in it's own right.
Well, don't look now, but there's enterprising juggernaut that might be following in the same footsteps. I am referring to none other than Murrilos' Tire Shops. With a brand new location now open at the corner of Lyon and Springfield, the Murrillo Brothers continue to dominate the local "llanta" scene. The latest addition brings the number of their tire shops to five.
Murillo's has always been known for good customer service ever since they opened their first location way back in the late 70s along San Dario avenue. As far as I know, they'll still check all your tires' air pressure and inflate them accordingly for one buck. They usually sell used tires and now also carry new ones. In addition, they provide roadside assistance and even have an 800 number for their customers. So, from the business desk at LaredoTejas, Congratulations to Murrillo's Tire Shop on their new location.
