Founder, Eli Raffkind, immigrated from Russia and opened the first Raffkind's store in downtown Amarillo in 1910. Eli's son, Morris, took over the family business after serving in the Marine Corps during World War II. In the early 1950s, Raffkind’s catered to the Amarillo Air Force Base, extending credit to airmen. George Raffkind, third-generation owner, took on the family business in 1982 by opening a second location. In 1994, Raffkind's proudly opened its most beautiful location in Wolflin Village carrying on the family tradition of styling Panhandle residents.
In 2016, three long-time employees, Adrea, Chad, and Dave purchased Raffkind's. With over 80 years of combined experience within Raffkind's, the new owners proudly fulfilled their life-long dreams of ownership of this historical establishment.
