In 1923, Anthony Casazza purchased 140 acres of ranchland between what is now Plumb Lane and Vassar Street.

For more than 50 years, Shoppers Square served as a trusted and convenient retail and cultural center for thousands of Reno families – a place where on any given day visitors might catch a glimpse of a polling station or Santa Claus while picking up groceries or perusing a shop.
