Fernando describes the humble beginnings with his mom sewing and creating the Auraluz brand and then opening the first small store in Kenner. Since then Auraluz has continued to thrive and grow. He has deep appreciation and feels fortunate for the loyal and supportive community and to be able to continue the family business. As an original Kids & Family New Orleans customer Auraluz has grown with us too. He describes the quality, format, and distribution as a factor in helping to reach so many areas. Great service is something he values and looks forward to another 20 years and so do we! See their ad on page 6 and read the rest of their story online.
