FIGMOS- Stands for "Finally I got my own sto' (store)"
In the 80s, Buffalo, NY a black owner opened a
supermarket in a closed supermarket in the middle of the ghetto. He called it "FIGMOS PTL" (Finally I Got My Owwwn Sto'. Praise the Lord!). Supposedly, gospel music, and never anything else, played over the store's speakers.
It is remembered for its hilarious commercial jingles, that always ended "Figmos, Praise da Lord!".
Yo shorty, I'm goin down to Figmos, get me some pig's feet. One.
