Celebrating 55 Years of Star Supply

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio – This month, Star Supply Bargain Outlet in Youngstown, Ohio, celebrates its 55th year in business. The anniversary coincides with the return of the iconic camouflage Ford Pinto to its usual spot after a brief removal for repainting.

The Pinto’s disappearance, a long-time fixture in the community, sparked concern, with customers calling the store to ensure everything was alright.

Karla Hodge, general manager, reassures that both the Pinto and the beloved store will continue to be staples in the Mahoning Commons community.

In this week’s TGIF Report, we look back at the store’s history and its impact, featuring footage of the store’s late founder, Richard Rosenthal.
