In true junker fashion, this store turns one person's junk into another's treasure. Founded in 1982 by Pam Majors, the 10,000-square-foot retailer sells vintage clothing, costumes, and shoes. Majors, a self-described third-generation junker, credits her success to the tight-knit culture of the store. "We're structured, but it's more like family than a corporation. A lot of my employees have been with me 20 years and they care about the store just as much as I do," she said.
