papi store n. in urban areas with a large Latino population, a small market or bodega, especially such a store where young men loiter. Etymological Note: Perhaps from the Spanish “mami y papi store” ‘mom and pop store,’ but note that papi is often used colloquially by Spanish-speakers in North America to refer to any man, father or not, especially one who is attractive.
