This week's featured Pomona business is Curley's Keyshop, located at the corner of Palomares and Monterey. Not only does the place look cool, in a frozen-in-time kind of way, but it's hands down the best place to have a key made. They even sell old fashioned keys for the locks found in historic homes. I have found their service to always include a smile and a friendly word.
The couple who used to own our home went through one of the more tumultuous relationships and notorious divorces in Pomona. As a result of a lot of fights and slammed doors in the past, we have had to have lots of work done on our front and back door locks. Not to mention that our back door lock was being held together by superglue from some handyman's prior repair job...
Curley's Key Shop is named after the original owner, whose nickname was Curley. The shop has been passed down two generations. Not sure why Curley was called Curley, as no one I've asked at the shop has ever known.
