Gems of Tampa Bay: Pickford’s Sundries in Tampa
By Brianda Villegas,
TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) — Take a trip back to the 1950’s by traveling to Pickford’s Sundries , a beloved gem in Tampa Bay.
When you walk into Pickford’s, you will see the retro lunch counter to your left, fun and quirky trinkets on shelves and even an old pinball machine.
Pickford’s first opened in 1949 and turned into a place you could stop in for a bite.
“We have a lot of customers who come in, who were a kid when they came in here and they came in with their mom or their dad or their grandmother. They just feel that special bond with this place,” Pickford Sundries Owner David Hansen said.
