Great Beginnings

The Luggage Shop was originally located on Broadway in Downtown Lubbock after opening in 1951. Mr. Rudolph Zarfas brought his expertise in travel luggage and related gear to the Lubbock area. Over the years, growth found the business moving to new homes in Monterey Shopping Center, South Plains Mall and Kingsgate Center. The Luggage Shop is now located at 98th and Quaker.

Who We Are

The Luggage Shop of Lubbock is still owned by the Zarfas family, Van and Tiffany Zarfas Willams, who are the third-generation owners. Both Texas Tech graduates, Van and Tiffany are enthusiastic and excited to continue the tradition of being Lubbock's source for all things travel.
