Santa Fe Springs~Oxman's Surplus, an Army/Navy Retail Surplus Store, will be hosting a celebration Saturday, May 21st, Armed Forces Day, to unveil their new “purple parking space” to be used exclusively by combat wounded, injured military personnel, and all veterans.
There will be free hot dogs and soda to the first 200 visitors. Hot dogs, will be served at 12:00 noon and at 1:00 p.m. there will be short comments by the Oxman family, Joe Enriquez of Point Man Ministries, and short impromptu comments by some of the Veterans in attendance. The purple parking space will then be unveiled.
Oxman's Surplus, founded by Jerome and Miriam Oxman in 1961 has been in the same location for 55 years. Jerome Oxman (1915-2013) was a WWII veteran and dedicated his life to buying, selling, collecting military memorabilia, and creating a store that is also a museum. Mr. Oxman wanted every customer to find what they wanted and learn a little bit about our military history and understand that "FREEDOM IS NOT FREE"
Oxman's is still under the watchful eye of Miriam Oxman as two of her sons, Murray and Jason, have taken the reins and are going strong.
On Saturday, Oxman's will be offering a 10% discount on all items in the store and a 20% discount on cold weather gear.
The Oxman family would like to thank Point Man Ministries for the generous food donations.
Oxman's Surplus is located at 14128 Rosecrans Avenue at Valley View Avenue along the border of Santa Fe Springs and La Mirada.
Please feel free to Contact Murray, Jason, or Miriam during the business hours of Mon.-Sat. 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. at 562.921.1106.
