13 Hermanos General Store, 2013
Norberto’s grandfather founded the general store on March 13, 1915. That first night, he counted a total profit of 13 pesos, all in one-peso coins. So he named the store “13.” Norberto Gregorio and his brother Alfonso Alberto have followed their father and grandfather’s footsteps. They say that the number 13 has been recurrent in their lives; for example, their grandfather had 13 chickens when he first came here, and also they have an aunt that was born on a 13th, as well as a granddaughter.
