You can walk into any business in Tucson and you never know what stories you might find. Take a trip inside a seemingly nondescript liquor store on South 6th Ave in Tucson and hear the story of the Laos family. They have been running a truly local business in that location since 1956 and there are items from every decade since still be discovered in the shop. At 85 year of age Annie Laos still holds down the shop with the help of her son Roy and she is as feisty as ever.
