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.
