Palmetto Cards & Collectibles
Owner Aaron Cordero is running the business with his son Jacob Cordero and fiance Meredith Hatley. Cordero told The State he’s been a collector for many years and has often done business at card trade shows across the country. He’s also run a card grading submission business for a number of years.
“We decided we ought to take the next step,” Cordero said. “The stars aligned. We said, ‘We need more space for the (grading submission) part of our business, let’s open up a retail space, also.’ So when you walk in our store, the front half of the store is retail space, and the back part is where we do the submission piece.”
Cordero said the shop on West Main Street has already gotten good support and that he enjoys seeing customers come in and get excited.
