Local business man Victor Gomez started selling at the age of 28 as a sales representative for western boots, later opening up his own business.

Gomez comes from a family of business owners. His family owned many businesses such as a grocery store, a beauty salon, and a booth at the flea market selling plants, making him the 3rd generation business owner in his family, he said.

Gomez’s first location was at the 290 Flea market at Austin, Texas. When he moved to Laredo he opened up his business selling paints, blankets, and other items.

He’s been in business for 25 years and as a registered business owner of Laredo Home Depo for 19 years.

During these years of working the most sold item is latex paint; customers usually purchase one bucket at a time.

“It’s the most sold item because it’s the best product at the best price,” Gomez said.

He has noticed that women usually pick white as the color using it as a base. They’re also the ones who purchase paint the most because they know what colors match best with anything, he said.

The most preferred theme of blankets in 2018 was Mickey Mouse because of its 90th anniversary, he said.

Gomez also said when people come to purchase something, “everybody comes back for more.”

His motivation to having a business was because he wanted to be his own boss.

“I’m very happy with the business I own. I’m very prosperous. I love selling paint because it beautifies our city and it’s affordable for everyone.” he added.
