‘Good to be back’: Auburn military store reopens after fire | Business

Before they decided to reopen, the old Payless space was going to be used for holding the store’s items. But then Michael Wachs of Auburn Associates, which owns the plaza, gave him a deal on the location with a two-and-half year lease. King said he wasn’t quite ready to call it quits.

“You know how it is, it’s in your blood,” he continued. 

Items relating to the military, wars, police and fire departments were neatly organized into separate sections of the store.

The LZ Army Navy Store at Auburn Plaza, 217 Grant Ave., reopened in a new plaza space this week after a fire in April at the store’s previous location in the shopping center.
