In 1961, Mr. Baldino completed a correspondence course to sharpen his locksmith skills, with the objective of establishing his lifelong dream of owning and operating a locksmith business in Clifton VA of his own. While continuing to work as an airline mechanic for United Airlines during the 4:00 p.m. to midnight shift, Baldino's Lock and Key Service, Inc began to blossom during the day. For two years from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., it truly was a family business, as Mr. Baldino, his wife, Doris, and sons Mark and Gary worked in a little shed under the backyard treehouse to establish the new locksmith shop near Clifton VA.
As the business grew, Mr. Baldino left his position as airline mechanic to devote his full attention to the now burgeoning Baldino's Lock and Key, Inc.
Although the first commercial space for Baldino's was no wider than two double doors and 16 feet deep, locksmith service requests in Clifton VA continued to grow rapidly.
A larger location was established near Clifton Virginia, with another shop to follow in the newly opened Tyson's Corner Shopping Center. Baldino's was able to claim the distinction of being the first locksmith shop in the nation to locate in a shopping mall setting!
After graduating from college, both sons Mark Baldino and Gary Baldino returned to the locksmith business as partners and full time employees servicing the Clifton VA area.
Albert Baldino passed away in March, 1991, leaving his legacy of a successful locksmith company in Clifton VA to his sons, Mark and Gary.
