Does anyone know the location that Von Tobel's Hardware operated in and what they are now? I think that 4440 East Tropicana, Las Vegas is a former Von Tobel's, then became a call center, and is now a swap meet... Also, I heard that at Decatur and Meadows, where Fallas Paredes is located is where a V...
