Business Champions

RGV Lot Accessories & More

Business owner Kimberly Barboza never anticipated a worldwide pandemic would sweep the globe just a few months after she bought RGV Lot Accessories & More in November 2019. For three weeks the business stayed closed following a local shutdown due to Covid-19, despite virtually no contact in their line of work.

However, through these unprecedented times, Barboza has taken the last few months as an opportunity to develop RGV Lot Accessories.

“I’m trying to expand the business,” Barboza said. She explained that the previous owner had stuck to a limited clientele, focusing on major car lots to service with their custom balloons and streamers. “We’re trying to get into schools; we’ve already been in some apartment complexes, snack shacks, drive-thru convenience stores. We’ve also been doing rentals for drive by birthday parties, baby showers and graduations.”

Barboza says that expanding into these other areas is how the business coped with a loss of income after the shutdown. Come November, Barboza will gain her balloon artist certification and will be the second person operating to hold the accreditation in the Rio Grande Valley; the first is her mom.

“Tough times come and they also go,” Barboza said. “Everything we’ve ever done has all been leaps of faith.”
