Parent Teacher Aids was opened on November 4th, 1979 by Maureen Burke, in a small 900 sq ft space in The Old Town Mall. Six years later, Maureen moved the store to a brand new shopping center, located at what is now the busiest intersection in Northern Nevada, in the heart of retail shopping in Reno.
