#62 Warwick’s

7812 Girard Ave
La Jolla, CA 92037-4287
(858) 454-0347

Twenty minutes from San Diego is a great seaside town called La Jolla.  And downtown on the main strip, in the middle of everything, is Warwick’s — a store for books, stationery, gifts, and office supplies.

This is a family owned store — four generations in the making.  Like Vroman’s it is a store that opened in the nineteenth century.

And there’s another similarity to Vroman’s  in that Warwick’s is a local icon, an indelible part of the surrounding community.  They sponsor a lot of events at Warwick’s and have strong customer service.  It is an affluent community of supportive readers.

Warwick’s has a cooking club, partnering with a local restaurant, where they host food-themed events.  There are also a lot of active reading groups and every spring and autumn, they host a book club night where booksellers and sales reps talk about forthcoming books.

It’s a lovely town with a venerable book store.  Well worth a visit if you’re in the area.
